Re: Terry

I literally said "Oh NO!" When I read this on the other Lightfoot site. This really makes me sad. I never met him, as so many on this site have. Yet I loved watching him when he would do the...

Yeah Don (Quixote), he said that, but then he lets you know that SUNDOWN'S about his torrid relationship with Kathy Smith. That's what made me wonder if this was another song that could be...

Re: Why Do We Keep Going Back?

On a selfish note, I think it "slows my life down". As long as he's performing, then my world is still the same. Even if his voice is tinny now, some 20+ years since I saw him first in Claremont,...

Re: Which Gordon Lightfoot song makes you cry?

My last post wasn't clear. It was a misplaced "quick reply".

None of his songs have ever made me cry, but some have gotten me very sad. Mainly because I deeply identify with them:

Re: Which Gordon Lightfoot song makes you cry?

That one gets me very sad, but not to tears. That song has some of his most powerful lyrics, in my opinon.

Re: GG - Affair on 8th Avenue

Yeah, this song was a "skipper" for me too. Meaning, I would skip it whenever I was close to the controls.

It seems to me that Gord has four distinct voice sounds.

Up until the album IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND, it's a voice that doesn't really venture to a really high or low note. Maybe because it...
