    She has a huge overbite.
    At the time she wrote The Hockey Theme, she had not seen a hockey game.
    Her inspiration for writing the theme was Roman gladiators in skates.
    She didn’t think The Hockey Theme would last more than a few years (look at the Eiffel Tower!).
    She composed the theme for the 1984 Olympic Games but did not indicate whether for Sarajevo or Los Angeles.
    She was the daughter of a ‘light opera’ (operetta) singer.
    She is a Bach fan.
    She composed jingles and background material for countless commercial enterprises, from car companies to insurance companies to restaurant franchises.
    Her husband wrote the lyrics for many of her compositions.
    Her famous theme became Canada’s Second National Anthem.
    After a less-than-peaceful contract dispute with the CBC over the piece, she accepted a better offer from another network, thus protecting it from extinction.
