10. “Sorry” by Pierre Kwenders

Fans of vocal samples take note: ’80s South African pop hooks are a goldmine.

9. “Passing Out Pieces” by Mac DeMarco

You’ll never see that stretch of Van Horne the same way again.

8. “Why” by Mas Ysa

The West Island native returned to Montreal for a spell in 2014 to record his debut album.

7. “Rip You Off Right” by Country

Montreal needs unkempt heroes like Beaver Sheppard and Mr. Lavender.

6. “Bow a Kiss” by Mozart’s Sister

A sleek pop tune that gets pretty dark once you start scratching below the surface.
