Q369 - ...sting
song - Whispers of the North
lyric - Whispers of the wind, I will feel it sting
I will see it rise and fall, I will hear it sing
The sound is like a song to me, it takes away the pain
The river is the melody and sky is the refrain

when i listen to this song I see Lightfoot relaxed in a canoe with lyrics and melodies waiting to be written..

Ronster: howdy -do Coloraddy-style. I gotta keep my howetowns feel - I'm starting to turn Canadian - and that's a good thing, but I'm not lol - maqybe I oughta be - nationalized healthcare ? Any Canucks wish to advise me of that side of intrigue-ing to me Canadian citizenship - please let me know in small-talk - corfid.cafe ! Didn't start out plugging my new talkety-talk blabberty-blab (for me lol), it just sorta happened......

OK Ron - lets 'tseeer:
Q370 .... it's fine .... = The Circle Is Small ? - You betcha by-golly... it does.
Congrats Ron - I'll post in the big X-file AND - the new mini-update - I hope ppl are finding that helpful in the midst of the terrifying prior and somewhat better now X-files in only 2-colors, mostly .... ahemm.....lol visual display of the X-files - as color-down'd as it is per recent requests... - its still an eyeful, and eg. - here now we have a hopefully-liked mini 'what's left' 2" tall post to help know where we are at !

Ron BTW/FYI - your submit was as intended. I had a rash of perfectly-equal ambigs lately - wondered what was that ? - which I may have conceived of unknowingly during neural network re-mapping, avoiding the brute-force algorithm, maybe ? lol....

Thanks for playing, Ron

SHAMELESS PLUG FOR MY NEW SMALLTALK - Corfid.cafe - I'm moving all of MY blabbert-blab ...well...greater than 2" high of post-real-estate, anyway !

Here is more I copied and am pasting here, advisedly not putting in to a hopefully clearer reply to Ron, somewhat, anyway, by virtue of moving the following into this post, shamelessly - but at least OUT of a reply lol
OH - BTW - before I post my SHAMELESS PLUG (i.e more of same) PLEASE NOTE THAT ENJOYABLE NON-LYRICS TALK OF MORE THAN 1" HEIGHT ON -SCREEN - I am trying to move them (mine-only of course) out of here, before being asked too ..lol
and am plopping them gradually into Corfid.cafe. INCLUDING ( What was in the treaure/trunk/chest ? Q & A) It'll be in a day or so, maybe later tonight, in corfid.cafe - for PATTI and LYNN and CAN'T REMEMBER lol who asked - at least Patti I know... well please help this move prove to be benefical by following me into that cafe space where we can talk unlimited amounts w/o causing visual discontinuity in this lyrics game ! That was 1/2 of my reasoning - the other half was pure friendly talk for what-have-you and even what-not ! If that's not specific I don't know what is ! (YOU DON'T, STEVE -yells the peanut gallery lol.....)

Shameless Plug: -please do -come into Small-Talk> Corfid-cafe again, any and all who would otherwise enjoy discussing off-thread things remaining open - as in the "what was in the trunk/mystery chest ?" - line a day or two ago.! Come in the cafe, try and catch one-another - or simply leave the post there - and I'll pick up on it.

I truly do appreciate it. It also represents a good thing for this thread's visual continuity as I said, sorry to repeat-peat - to move longer talketies of mine and willing participants lol to the cafe - ME being the greater in length poster of Blabberty-blab - so follow me all into a land of notions - whatever is on your mind, see If Anyone Is Home in that post made of Stone lol....- Corfid-cafe - OK enough with the good-intentions plug - it'll hopefully clear-up the eye-popping prior discontinuity (for the game specific-posts) into a hopefully easier to track continuity - and by noting the above several on-thread responses -I believe that and/or the mini-catch-up might be just starting to help .. ?, after the mini-catch-up - I do believe it may JUST be starting to work. My apologies for missing your friendly look in the door at the Cafe, Ron

Hi Lynn ! 'tseeer:

Q374 Phantoms .... = The Lost Children ? - You bet it does !
That was the intended song, too. It's a heart-tugger, especially for anyone who's a parent.... I'll post your win in the X-files AND the mini-update called 'Whats Left ?' - Thanks for playing, Lynn.

Hope to see you in the new small-talk>Corfid.cafe, or at least your miscellaneous thoughts you care to share, woes, ,wins, where'e,why's, what's,who's, when's - lol looks like a journalism 101 student's inked on the palm cheat crib/sheat of the big 5's to never skip in your articles..... . And, also, NEVER EVER begin a sentence with 'AND'. So, C U there or be square - we've had a good first day, but barely missed one another 4 realtime meta-chat.

The river is the melody and sky is the refrain

Char's quietude inhaling: (Steve's infused comment's in pineneedle green within Char's quote)"when i listen to this song I see Lightfoot relaxed in a canoe with lyrics and melodies waiting to be written..
- I can see & inhale it too, Char, and can only guess when he used to get real serious with a few hearty wilderness-savvy pals, and more muscle than Gord's humble clothing would bely - and take one of his legendary 500 - 700 mile mini-maritime (only on the boat size) journey's
( interesting the presumably Canadian-origin stories of that do not express meters in at least just 3.28:1 feet/meters style,hhm )anyway yes I see him on the in/and out of 65 degree Lat. arctic waters sea-kayaking or Canoe'ing up The McKenzie River or what not all the way to Beaufort bay, how could all that wilderness arboreal splendour NOT inspire him to write around the camp-fire ? I'm sure he did - to such perennial classics as Canary-Ye//// Shut-up Steve" - with the CYC song, enough allready lol.....

But W.O.T.N. allways inspired me to snowshoeing psych-ups, in the walking in the snow lyrics at the end... That song has an almost cathedral-like echoe with a perfect (self-voice-over-harmony like Sundown) -harmonius pitch'd church choir background (in the refrain (as I recall...) - Gord's harmony history is resplendant here). Anyway - I'm wit ya... I KNOW I'll be porting this post to the Corfid.cafe, as promised by me. -To free-up the lyrics-game visually- and content-continuity; But I won't let this thread grow completely bereft of GL quips/anecdotes here and there such as your musing Char - but NOT MY voluminous reply lol-I think I'm definately being guided down to the trap-door at the end of the Shanghei-Bar sailor-2B, at the end of the bar that gave San Fransisco its Barberry Coast notoriety; of what our threads fundamentally are all about - celebrating the Man's music in a fun diversional-style ? I', employing for starters a 1 1/2" rule of Mine 'ill keep here and there, more, I'll port to corfid.cafe

SO....Howdy Char - I appreciate your many drop-ins to the new corfid.cafe ! I came within 1 minute of meta-real-time talk with ya ! Was it the Gin/Lime Gimlet that was the 'no-serve 'girly-drinks' lol.... or the Starbuck's coffee shop-slang as portrayed in the Mel Gibson movie - 'What Women Like' - where he gets morning coffee and they sling that shop slang I can't reproduce in writing - something like ' 1/2-decaf no lip -top whip double shot 1 cream no stream winkdrink coffee' that was the girly -type at Tim's - or The cafe ? Well-past my 1 1/2" personal limit self-limiting talkety-talk-B4 I move it into the cafe at this point - its by-by moveout tomorrow -lol

OK 'tseeeer,

Does Q369 ... sting = 'Whispers of the North' ? - you betcha ! - as intended song, too ! I'll post it in the quickly-evaporating NEW mini-update, as well as the comprehensive X-files..lol...

Thanks for playing, Char C U in the Cafe at some point , bring your daughter in 2 ! She's old enough for coffee, isn't she ? Course, you grow-em strong, hale-and-hearty up their in the Northland, Up There In the Snow - Probably drinking coffee by 16, while staying warm in her Hudson's Bay Double-shoulder Stag-Jac-Shirt style, or a genuine Filson's Double Mackinaw (timber)-cruiser Wool coat instead ? We down in the coterminous lower 48 have to a certain extent this still-lingering vision of Canadian's as King's of the snow and ice - Upland Caribou's duck-boots, Malone-wool & grizzlly cloth over-alls we envision of you folks from down here.... or am I about 150 years off, and you're in Levi's and Nautica Shirts, and US-requisite North-Face down jacket in Guide Yellow/Black, commonly here in Colorado as well as Winter-croc's !!! - I draw the line at those....good-God lol.... crocs in winter - they really are selling numb-nu66 the fleece-lined BUT STILL OPEN WITH VENT HOLES LIKE REGULAR CROCS - first slush hole comes up and goodby to dry/warm feet ! Other than Snoopy choosing to sacrifice comfort-for-style, I don't get it..... so anyway - the real Toronto'an, above Q-posed-notwithstanding, I'll really bet you guys are urbaneley ( is that an adjective lol) gadgeting (I'll trademark that) your way thru the day like us:

While you are wi-fy'ing at your local version of Denver's-and-growing 'Tattered Cover' Book Store High-rise mega-book/all-media stores Have they made it up to Toronto yet - ?I'm sure that'd be their first whack at a Canadian location - as 'hip and urbane' as any Nextel-packing mandatory Knee-length tan businessman's/woman's over/rain-coat-wearing, Halliburton-toting Denverite , at least to cover ( no matter how cold )Men's suits, poking out in the tails in the North-Face Down jacket - covering up those sartorial splendor spills, no doubt in Toronto ! OK THIS-one I'll export to Corfid.cafe - case in point ! lol...- by tomorrow late morning - seriously - I'll relocate it into the corfid.cafe- If I remember, all undiscussed matters permitting.

Ya-Ha pilgrim- we're burnin' daylight ..... Howdy-doo Ronster again - your knocking 'em down like duckpins. Way to go !

Since I'm gonna move a few larger posts over to corfid.cafe, I'll indulge us one more time in here with some non-game talk - car-talk ruh ruh ruhruh!!

'tseeer:
Does Q368 .... strangers .... = 'All The Lovely Ladies' ? - You betcha - a totally-valid ambig - FYI intended was 'Can't Depend On Love' . Well played, Ron.

I'll post yours in what will close-down the mini-progress list, post and wrap-up the X-files - and finish our 10 all-together. If I can stay awake, I'll post 10 new ones, we'll see. But I'm with you. lets brings this last dogie into the rope-pen huh ? OK then. Hope to see you in the corfid-cafe again.

I came real -close to real-time when Char re-appeared, as did I, and I was one minute away from catching her B4 logging out - I was trying to hurriedly but politely finsh a phone call with a local friend. Oh well. It'll come along. Who knows - c'est la vie.

Thanks for playing, Ron. You sure turned in a 3-banger this time - there is such a thing too- My Old Subaru Justy 3-cylinder ! (little hatchback mini-car) with the world's 2nd continuously-variable transmission - no gears, - but a sliding in and out one inside the other, creating an angular hour-glass geometry if you will, of varying radii, and a electro-magnetically charged electro-magnet drive chain - only 3 (three !!!) moving parts in it.
The workd's first CVT (not electric) in assembly-line cars was the Sunbeam Alpine Convertible - (Get Smart's first red TV car) rare collector's car now - but it had a failure-guaranteed rubber drive belt off of its variable radii arrangement. One rotisserie-restored now'd bring $50 -60K I've read. I guess I shoulda kept the Sube in a nitrogen-filled room, and sell it now lol ! That ECVT was an amazing piece of engineering.

Picture selecting a healthy RPM level you want, by how hard you pressed the gas - the RPM's would go up as well as power at the flywheel of course, and say you choose 3,800 RPM for 0-45 MPH, staying at 3800 RPM the whole time - weird - very weird, then onto the on-ramp to the interstate, you nail it to a govener-controlled max RPM anyway, but you modestly pick 4700 RPM onto the on ramp for 45-75 MPH - smooth maximum RPM HP curve if you want, and then it automatically slides back down at your chosen continuous speed, say now at 75MPH, and the steel cones slide down to the lowest RPM power band range that will hold the speed, at minimum gas consumption. It was rated better MPG than its stick manual version (38hwy).

I got the new car with 2 dealers counter bidding lol ..... so out the door, I get a new 4wd Just with the ECVT tranny, air-conditioning, CD sound system, and airbags and ABS brakes, ,AND the 100,000 mile/6year Bumper-to-bumper warranty -everything but expendables, -Zero deductible - out the door for (true) $10,300.- everything . MSRP was $12,200,(this was in '93) w/o the warranty - another $900 -but it WAS included in the out-the-door price. Last day of the year - 12/31 -!! you can figuee that one out !

Well-worth-it on an experimental tranny - and sure as hell the little wonder tranny did go out - had it R&R'd once, then at the 5 years + mark, impending warranty term, and it was developing in its 5th year every known electrical problem, until they said it needed an entire new wiring harness - a $1,500 repair - covered just in under warranty - I got my money's worth. Continued to have inexplicable electrical failures as the term loomed on the warranty, so I traded it in at the dealer who had the exact Legacy Wagon I wanted - an "Outback" w/o the silly Outback package - $2,000 worth of stickers, PLASTIC body kick-panels all the way around the sides - you've seen 'em, 1/4"greater radius rims, which , all tires for a moment the same, would produce 1/4" greater ground clearance for off-road (schyeaaah)-NOT antics, interior upgrade more cup holders !

Yeah I'm paying $2,000 more for plastic door panels, 1/4" greater ground clearance, skid plates (You'd be a madman to take what really is a family wagon - not a stout-frame real off-road UTE , where on roads made of 1 ft. diameter mini-boulders, you need a wheel-drop man watching your every tire-drop by standing outside and watching every wheel plant....I love Subaru's, but I'd never chose to get stuck 15 Miles out thinking its a "sport-ute" lol....and crunch there goes your differential - forget the skid-plates- bottom line offroad for clearance are the differentials in my experience with a '76 CJ5. Last good year many said. OK I'm real tired now. lol This post'll definately get moved over into corfid.cafe. Thanks, Ron. You brought home the last dohgie.

Default Re: GL Lyrics fan(atics) fun quizzers and more !

HERE ARE TEN NEW CLUES ! , @ 12:00 midnight. Mtn. Std.,Wed.,Feb. 18th, 2009 !

HOPE YOU ENJOY THESE - ITS A 'THEME'-LIST.

THIS TIME
THE 'BROAD-BRIMMED ERA' AS ONE JOUNALIST DESCRIBED GORDON AS HAVING - AND IN A COMPLIMENTARY WAY HE SAID IT; IN THAT THEY ARE -ONLY- FROM DON QUIXOTE TO COLD ON THE SHOULDER, AND INCLUDING......GG1, STRICTLY 'RELEASED' FROM '72 - '75 = :
Don Q., ODR, SUNDOWN, COTS, GG1 - THAT'S IT -!-
If in doubt - Lightfoot.ca has the year of releases that the preceeding 5 albums agree with in time span '72 - '75 per lightfoot.ca = above albums


ALL OTHER SECONDARY LABELS SUCH AS UA IN THIS TIME ARE NOT INCLUDED. THE ONLY COMPILATION IS GG1 FOR THIS TEN. REMEMBER THE GG1 LP 1ST DISC - ARE RE-RECORDED SELECT UA PERIOD - WITH HIS '74 "SOUND" AS ITS BEEN DESCRIBED. THEY ARE INCLUDED. ON THAT DOUBLE-ALBUM - 1 SONG IS FROM THE UA PERIOD, ANOTHER...IS NOT, BUT ARE PRE'72 ON BOTH GG1 SONGS. HAVE FUN !


HINT: I HAVE SELECTED SOME OF MY PERSONAL FAVOURITES THAT ARE....SECONDARY SONGS IN THE ALBUM 'EXPERIENCE' , WHICH Yuri SAID SO WELL, THE SONGS I CHOSE ARE ALSO AMONG THE MORE MELODIUS, MORE RESTFUL, BEAUTIFUL-BEAUTIFUL SONGS. THEY TEND NOT TO BE THE 'HITS', AND THEREFOR I CALL THEM 'SECONDARY SONGS' - BUT CERTAINLY OF NO LESS BEAUTY OR STATURE OF THE HITS SONGS, THERE MAY BE A HIT OR TWO, FROM SOME TIME OR ANOTHER, AND THE ...CLUE WORDS I CHOSE MAY NOT BE DEFINATIVE, FIRST THOUGHT, FIRST SONG THAT COMES TO MIND. AS WE ALL KNOW BY NOW, HE HAS RECURRING THEMES - AND CORRESPONDING WORDS THAT, AS KEFERA SAID WELL , ARE AMONG HIS LITERARY DEVICES FOR METAPHORS OR...LOST LOVE AS GHOSTS, THATS HIS LITERARY METAPHOR, AS KEFERA SAID. I WOULD ADD TO GHOSTS MY FINDING OF THE WORD 'CHAINS' IS ANOTHER RECURRING METAPOR IMO. I THINK IF ONE WORD HAD TO BE PICKED OF THE SONGS THAT DEFINES THEM, I WOULD SAY AMONG THE MOST 'BEAUTIFUL' SONGS. THATS NOT AN OBSCURE IMBEDDED HINT, ITS ONLY WHAT I CAN REDUCE TO ONE WORD THAT TIES MY CHOICES TOGETHER, SUBJECTIVE TO SAY THE LEAST. YOU COUYLD ALSO SAY OF MY CHOICES THAT MOST ARE NOT THE HITS. MAYBE ONE OR TWO PEPPERED IN THERE, FOR MY TIE THAT BINDS MY CHOICES - ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL MELODIES, AND GORD'S SINGING AS WELL, WHEN HE QUICKDRAWS THAT PERFECTLY CHOSEN TIME TO EXECUTE HIS MASTERFUL VIBRATO, AND WHEN NOT TOO, THAT SEEMS TO DEFINE THIS TIME PERIOD FOR ME.

MAJOR REQUIREMENT THIS TIME ONLY - YOU MUST COME UP WITH THE INTENDED SONG, WHICH I KNOW IS HARDER TO DO, THERE WILL BE MANY REPLIES BY ME LIKE "GOOD CHOICE, (McDUFF... ), BUT THATS NOT IT". THEN LOOK IN ANOTHER SONG FOR THOSE WORDS. THIS TIME, THEY QUITE LIKELY ARE NOT DEFINATIVE WORDS THAT DRAW YOU UNQUELY TO THAT SONG. IN EXCHANGE FOR THAT DIFFUCT REQUIREMENT, I WILL TELL YOU ONE MORE SUBSTANTIVE HINT - NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE 5 ALBUMS IN THIS TIME PERIOD - PER LIGHFOOT.CA - THE MAJOR RELEASES REMEMBER- NO FOREIGN OR OTHERWISE OBSCURE RELASES, THEY ARE THE 'MAIN20' + GG1, AND FOR TEN CLUES, THERE ARE 5 RELEASES (ALBUMS STILL IN THAT DAY) FROM EACH ALBUM/DOUBLE ALBUM.
MOREOVER -I CONVENIENTLY FOR YOU CHOSE EXACTLY TWO FROM EACH ALBUM OR DOUBLE-ALBUM AS THE CASE MAY BE, AND THE SONGS, OF MY CHOICES, I WOULD SAY 8 OR SO ARE -NOT- HIS MAJOR SONGS/HITS/ TITLE CUTS/OR MOST WELL KNOWN SONGS AT ALL - NOT NECESSARILY, THERE MAYBE 2 OR 3 THAT ARE. SO WHILE THIS SEEMS DIFFICULT TO TRY, IT IS ONLY TEN ALBUMS, AND YOU KNOW MANY SONGS TO RULE OUT BY WHAT I TOLD YOU. YOU MAY BE SURPRISED THE WORDS I CHOSE THAT WOULD FIRST MAKE YOU THINK OF ANOTHER SONG RIGHT AWAY - ....ODDS ARE...ITS NOT THAT SONG...ITS A LESSER KNOW ONE.. I DO HOPE THIS HAS BEEN OF HELP.
- Steve

================================================

=========== REMEMBER...THE THEME TIME PERIOD
GG1 1st half - transcends the time period in UA original, but re-recorded in '75


Q376 Deck .... - X mandoann gets it with 'Circle of Steel'

Q377 .... stem ....

Hi formerlyLavender, say- do you wanna go by anything shorter ? I totally understand if you don't - but if you do, what would you like us to call you ?
Various abbreviations of formerlyLavender I ran through a few in my head - and most I could think of sound kind of unflattering or in poor taste/unpleasant connotations what have you - form, nope. Lav - nope.
vender lol -nope. Any thoughts ?, or keep 'er as is, is just fine of course.

OK 'tseeeer:
Q378 .... dawn = 'The Patriot's Dream' - well, its a fine ambig - works just fine for any regular list; it just misses the mark on one count - its not the intended song. I'll know in a few submissions if the ambiguity willl be a major difficulty, in which case I'll come back and add 2nd clues to the lost, ot if my idea of this list is a flop, well I'll just go back and award it to the first ambigs that work - in which case - were that to happen, you'd get this one Sorry formerly, good crack at it,

Hi GeoSteve, The Patriot's Dream was the first one that came to mind...no big deal.

You can just initialize and call me "fl" if it's easier. I used to be just "lavender", but someone else registered the name, so I adapted mine. That was when you could be an unregistered poster...long story.

Hi mandoann how ayre 'ya ? This reply of your's is...!! well you'll see.

Does Q376 Deck .... = Circle of Steel' & = steve's intended song ? YES ! Way to go mandoann ! - Maybe this 'special list' of mine requiring the intended songs will work ! Its sorta like Ron commented when he mused over the '10 of the greatest hits' Q list, and he commented something like "well it IS only ten songs - I thought it'd be easy, but it was hard !" We'll see on this one.

Thanks for playing mandoann ! I'll post your win !

Does Q385 Another .... = Ordinary Man & = steve's intended song ? Wellll... the song works, would ordinarily win, but is not the intended song. 50/50 so far mandoann - I gotta tell you, I almost had picked that for the intended...I was sooo close when I picked ( ) !

Thanks for playing
