Happy Birthday, Gordon Lightfoot!

Gordon Lightfoot's birthday is on November 17th, 2000.



As suggested, I'd like to collect all birthday wishes under one topic, and I'll then print it out and send it to Gordon Lightfoot.

Please post your birthday greeting by clicking on the "Post Reply" button.

I'm sure he will be most happy to see how much he is appreciated all around the world.

Well, Gord, I guess you can tell by all these birthday greetings just how much you are thought of by all of us. In all our cases you have made a big difference in our lives, since the first time we heard you on the radio, or at a concert, or on a friend's stereo. We listen to you to calm down, dream, fall in love, make it through the tough times, and appreciate life.
So, from all of us to you:

MAY YOU HAVE THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS
AND MANY,MANY MORE TO COME.

(By the way: "Otter than nothin', what's new?)

Fondly, theotterjudy

As for me, I'd have to say you put on the best show to take a date to...guess it's all those romantic tunes. Thanks for all the wonderful songs you've shared with us.
I praise God for you. Happy Birthday Gordon.

I was at your concert in Marquette/Michigan in the 70's when you sang "The Wreck of the Edmund FItzgerald" for the first time there. It was an awesome concert!

Dear Gord,
may your birthday bring you as much joy
and happiness as your music has brought me
over the years. There's an old saying which
sums up my feelings exactly: MAY YOU LIVE
A THOUSAND YEARS, Gordon Lightfoot!
Please come and see us in the UK again soon.
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday, Gord!

Now, you're not going to be working on your birthday again, are you?!! (Massey Hall mid- 80's. You recorded "I'll Tag Along" AND gave a concert that night! oh, pleeeeaze....)

Much Love & Best Wishes from Kate and Marty!

Happy Birthday Gord. Thank you so much for many years of fantastic music. Keep it coming. You are the best !

Reaching for my saddlebag
I take a Lightfoot tape into my hand
Then striking up a knightly pose
I shout across the ocean to your shore
Please play England once more.

All the best, Alan & Gill (England).

Hi Mister Lightfoot! Have a nice birthday! I've grown up with your music (my parents are fans, but i swear I'm not a fan by default) Eat a giant piece of yummy cake!

Happy Birthday!
I hope the coming years find you in good health, with a happy heart and a knowledge that you and your music mean more to so many people than they could ever express. The accomplishment of touching the world with your talent is astounding. Meeting you in Orillia this past July was truly an honour for me and one I will never forget. I understand you heard my name from town to town this summer from fellow Lightfoot lovers who came to see you. I find this quite amusing seeing as I have been a fan for 30 years, live up the road from Toronto and always kept my distance! Except for Hallowe'en 1993 when I dropped by with my children! It has been a true joy to have had your music in my life all these years and I rest easy knowing that I always will. I hope this finds you surrounded by your loving family and true friends. Know that all of us will be there in spirit, toasting a light in all our lives - you.

I appreciate all you do; the tours you make, the songs you write. I can absolutely feel your music and your stories.You have such a gift. Thank you for sharing it with me, and all the many people who love you.

Gordon,

Happy Birthday and our wishes for many more. Had a great time at our last concert at the Majestic Theatre, in North Tonawanda, NY. Looking forward to Massey Hall next spring.
