Anthem Challenge Winner is Canadian Gold

Colin Oberst's Canadian Gold is the new Hockey Night in Canada Theme the CBC announced last night on national TV following thousand of public votes. Oberst collects a cheque for $100,000 and half of the lifetime royalties, with the other 50 per cent invested by the CBC in minor hockey across the country.

Obertst's final version was produced by Bob Rock who added the celtic bagpipe opening. Some commenters expressed dissatisfaction with the Rock's version. Listening to both the final and original versions, I find that the original without the bagpipe intro more effective.
