Northey Valenzuela – Not A Lot Going On (Corner Gas Theme Full Extended Version)

Corner Gas was a great Canadian comedy (“sitcom”) that ended recently and the theme song was as recognized by everyone as cool as the show itself. Performed by Craig Northey and Jesse Valenzuela previously of the band Odds, the version here is the full extended song rather than the 30 second intro to the TV show, as it’s rare and something a bit different for a change.

If you’re familiar with the original Corner Gas TV show theme, then you’ll definately notice the differences in the lyrics here, but, ya know, either way there’s still not a lot going on around here, eh? 🙂

    i was just wondering what the joke is at the beginning of the song. “you can tell me that your dog ran away, then tell me that it took three days”………..what is the joke?

    Good question! I think it has something to do with the wide open space of the prairie towns where it would take a long time to get “lost” or run away out in the open. The original line (in this version here) is “you can watch your dog run away and out here it can take 3 days”, which explains it better, as there is no place to hide in the flat lands. In the city the dog would disappear in 30 seconds! lol
