A lot of emphasis has been placed on the Man's words, and indeed they are brilliant, but for me the whole package includes the music, and we forget sometimes how gifted a musical brain we're dealing with. Can I suggest three songs that have not been mentioned much? Spanish Moss, Looking at the Rain and Now and Then. They have a common thread of love lost - and marvellous use of major seventh chords. The chord sequence in Spanish Moss I could play all day, and the way major sevenths come in the middle of the other two really reinforces the mellow mood.
GL is certainly master musical composer, carefully selecting the right chords, melody and rhythm for each song/story. I love his maj7, m7, sus4, and come to think of it, any other chord he uses!

Bless you all and keep you on the road to better things
