The Montreal Canadiens had a long and emotional 2017/18 season, and there’s no better way to encompass it than by putting it in song.

There are many ways to express how your feeling. Some just openly say it, while others look for a more unique method of doing it. Writing them down and including them in poetry or songs have been something we’ve all experienced at one point or another. Whether it’s actually doing the act itself or appreciating the work of someone else.

The beauty of songs is that they add an extra element of life to a project. Sometimes when you see a feature film, the soundtrack is one of the things you take away with you when walking out of the theatre. Let’s say, for example, the Montreal Canadiens entire season this year was a movie. There are an infinite amount of titles you could give it, but choosing a song for some of the major events that happened could be a fun little project wouldn’t you say?

So here you have it, A Winning Habit‘s own Montreal Canadiens 2017/18 soundtrack. I’d like to say that I looked throughout the archives of music ever made to compile this list of songs, but it was mostly going through my iTunes library and selecting tracks that I thought best applied to the moment of the year I’d be talking about.

The album list includes 16 songs selected by yours truly with a bonus side compiled of choices from the other contributors on the site. Plug in a pair of headphones and prepare to be taken on a rollercoaster as we go through the songs from that best described the Habs year.
