The only ones I can think of would be "Song for a Winter's Night" or "Circle of Steel".

jan6906 12-04-2004 11:01 AM

No, it's neither of those.. Thank you for replying..

jj 12-04-2004 12:26 PM

well, i stand to join Gord in a VHS tape toast (non-alcoholic, of course) as he sings Auld Land Syne (how do you spell that?) every New Year's...but i don't suppose that's what you're referring to, eh?

could it be something off of this compilation? http://www.corfid.com/ubb/wink.gif

a little time on your hands JJ?

It would have been nice to hear SFAWN on the weekend.....instead of The Wreck.....

Rona 12-04-2004 01:57 PM

JJ-Too cute! It never fails to amaze me what clever, talented, devoted folks we have on this site. Nice job. Thanks for a laugh!

hey, thanks for the nice words, rona http://www.corfid.com/ubb/smile.gif
i'm mainly just here to be laffed with or at (even the latter doesn't bother me http://www.corfid.com/ubb/wink.gif)

char, i did that one-handed, i'm getting good, eh? http://www.corfid.com/ubb/tongue.gif

btw, next printing will definitely include a Hanukkah song since Gord had universal appeal http://www.corfid.com/ubb/smile.gif

instead of the Dreidel Song, how about "Spin, Spin"?

pls, any others to add, you creative folks, you? http://www.corfid.com/ubb/smile.gif

JJ you are TOOOOO funny! I have been laughing until tears are coming out of my eyes!! My kids are laughing, too!! And, since we're Jewish, we LOVE the "Spin, Spin" idea for the Dreidel song!! Sorry, brains are not awake enough yet to think of any more at the moment! We've been having a relaxing Saturday morning lolling around and, of course, I'm in here!!

Great album jj but you should have used a bearded Gord to drive the ladies nuts!

Sheryl Klein 12-04-2004 02:59 PM

saradreams 12-04-2004 05:56 PM

Good one! http://www.corfid.com/ubb/smile.gif

How about...

"I'm Not Sayin' What I Got You For Christmas"
and
"Looking At The Snow"

Sorry, jan6906. I can't think of any GL Christmas songs either.

is it just me? or does it not seem strange to see Lightfoot in a Santa uniform? i could probably see Peter Paul & Mary dress up but in the back of my mind he's just 1 of the last people who would.

beard or no beard, I'd like to sit on Santa's lap! The beard would be nice though.

Sheryl Klein 12-05-2004 01:22 AM

you bad girl, you! <pushing aside Deb to get on Santa's lap>

Being Jewish myself, and knowing that Chanuka usually gets short shrift in Christmas' wake, I thought I'd post a few titles myself..and while I was on a roll, I added a few extras for some of our other holidays
For Channuka :
Anything For Latkes
All the Lovely Driedels
Songs the Macabbee Sang.
Does Your Mother Know (You got a Christmas tree?)
Affair on 8th Night


For Passover :
The Matzohs and Mary Ann
(Four Cups of )Blackberry Wine
Bitter Herbs
Brisket City


For Sukkot :
The Sukkah is Small

and For Yom Kippur :
Forgive me L-rd

JJ, I recall once making up song titles in the unlikely event that Gord should decide to turn to rap. There were a few of us involved with renaming his songs. It was hilarious! So, why don't you turn him into a rapper, and we'll see what we can come up with.

Sheryl Klein 12-05-2004 02:07 PM

Sundreme, that was HYSTERICAL!! Thanks for the laughs!!! (loved the 4 cups of Blackberry Wine!!) And, in our case, the Sukkah is HUGE!!

Thanks Sheryl. I posted it right before I went to sleep and inadvertently left a few out, so I re-edited and added a couple of more.
BTW,
Mazel Tov... Its always good to have a roomy Sukkah! http://www.corfid.com/ubb/smile.gif
