Among the new crop of SOCAN Classics honoured during the 28th SOCAN Awards Montréal Gala – heldOct. 16, 2017, at La TOHU – are two magnificent songs writtenby Claude Dubois: “J’ai souvenir encore” and “Si Dieu existe.” To become a SOCAN Classic in Québec, a song has to be at least 20 years ago and have earned more than over 25,000 airplays on the radio.

SOCAN was on the red carpet to capture Claude Dubois’ reaction. In this video interview, he reminisces on the circumstances that led him to write these songs, especially “Si Dieu existe,” which became something of a farewell song in the public imagination. He also speaks about SOCAN, an “essential and precious organization.”
