I wont ask if you ever get Gordon Lightfoot songs stuck in your head because if you didn't,you wouldn't be a fan!

Putting aside,"Sundown","Wreck","IYCRMM" and "Carefree Highway" (we've all had those stuck in our head) what songs of his have recently played on the radio in your mind?

Right now,"End Of All Time" is playing in there but it's strange that it is. I haven't listened to "Harmony" in a coupl-a months! Maybe that means I should listen?

In the past few months,Sixteen Miles To Seven Lakes,"Wild Strawberries","Rainy Day People","Endless Wire" and "I'll Do Anything" have all had me singing along.


Til next time,later!

The instrumental part of Sweet Guinevere is one of the things that gets in my head all the time. It sounds "cute" somehow.

I am always having "Only Love Would Know" in my head lately. That one is SO hard to get out of my head.

I think of some parts of "The Last Time I Saw Her" at least once a day.

I woke up this morning at about 5:30 (why I don't know) and Shellfish was what was in my head...still is at 8:30!
I listened to Harmony CD several times last night while surfing the net.

I get Endless Wire stuck in my head a lot as well, actually.

In fact, if I'm alone, I will quite often find myself singing "down in the dark of a beat out soul there's a few good second hand dreams...", if I'm just wanting to sing something.

Strange, right?

Right now, it's Stationmaster. There's an ever-changing rotation that I get obsessed with for a couple of days at a time

Well,it's Sunday and today's "head-bangers" :D ) are "Let It Ride" and "I Can See It In Your Eyes". At times they seem to gel together which can be a bit annoying,like my brain can't make a choice! Grrrr!

As for Stationmaster,he hasn't been here since May,after he made his big move at the conclusion of the "Picture that song" game. I miss doing that. It was fun...quite a stumper.

Okay,for some reason "Spin-Spin" just entered in up there! I bettr go or I'll post every tune that happens to "pop in". Later!

"Let it Ride" . I love the, how is it described on the liner notes..."tape delay hi-hat and tambourine." And "You Just Gotta Be" for the lawn sprinkler sound in the background.
From "East of Midnight."
"Whispers of the North" too.

Today's special in my mind,"Shadows!" The "Live In Reno" version at that. Of course,I just watched it again Sunday night,so it's a wonder all the songs aren't in my head!

There are several GL songs that are constantly getting stuck in my head, including:
"Now and Then"
"10 Degrees and Getting Colder"
"Go My Way"
"Love & Maple Syrup"
"On Susan's Floor"
"Too Late for Prayin'"
"Dreamland"
"Endless Wire" (The chorus plays in my head relentlessly--good thing I love this song)
"Hey You"
"I'll Do Anything"
"She's Not the Same"
"Romance"
Lately, "Romance" has been the one stuck in my head. I would say "Endless Wire" is without a doubt the song that gets stuck in my head the most frequently.

"Waiting for You" has given me no peace. Much as I like the concept (to quote the Man) of "making babies up in the north country ". Trouble is while it is great fun making 'em , one day they turn into teenagers and aaaaahhhh! You have my life in 2005! (lol)

For some reason, "Whisper My Name" has been going through my head the past few days.

Because I listened to one of my home-made Lightfoot tapes the other day,"Forgive Me Lord" has been hanging in there forthe last 48 hours!

"Dream Street Rose" is often there. "Whisper My Name" slips in there too.
