Dear all,
Over the years which GL song or album do you think you have listened to most?
Was the choice different years ago, as opposed to recent times?

Frank.

I'd say IYCRMM if for no other reason than I hear it so much on the radio. But that song
is so damned good that I never get tired of it. Whenever it pops on a station, I stop whatever I'm doing and just listen. Actually, I do that when any Lightfoot song comes on.

In the old days it was Sunday Concert (Live) and a blend of Don Quixote and Gord's Gold...made my own extra long tape using both record albums. Had to do it twice...wore the first one out.
Now it's East of Midnight, Dream Street Rose and Shadows. Still go back to Sunday Concert...now have the tape version...and my "Gold/Quixote" every now and then.
Just got Songbook...my very first CD(s). That's an overwhelming set! But such a great collection. He must have been one tired puppy going thru all his stuff and coming up with that one! Glad he did, tho.

Hi Frank,
Practically the only time I listen to music is in my car- and when Gord is on, I turn it up until I can't hear myself singing along. I bet people who pass me on the highway must think I'm nuts or that I'm cursing up a blue streak. Anyway, I had a tape made from my LP's of Sundown and Shadows to keep in my car. It remained the only tape I listened to for quite a while until I traded in my car and switched to CD's. Then it became GG and GG2. I do have most of Gord's work on tape but am slowly acquiring them in CD's so I can
listen to them in my car as well. It sure was great when I got Songbook- ah, variety!

(5 years,1 month and 8 days later,a good topic get a 2nd chance!)

I feel I have listened to the song,"Carefree Highway" more than any other GL song. Mainly because I've lived in AZ for 25 years and it's always on Kool-FM and I've had it on a tape called "Mellow Seventies" since 1988!

It's only happened in recent years but I feel I've played,"IYCRMM" and "Sundown" equally,even more so since getting them on CD.

More than those two or the others though,would have to be "Songbook". The box set itself made me curious enough to buy it and after the first listen to all 4 CD's,I listened to it for months!
(Which as we know led to seeing him in concer a year later. )

Hey B :D ,

Found another ancient thread didja, you're like an explorer bringing back mummies & such ,

But I'll bite - for me it's DON QUIXOTE - then, now and always. With a couple of repeats of Second Cup Of Coffee for good measure. I like 'em all but DQ's my all time fave.

I would have to say Don Quixote. It was the first Lightfoot album I bought. It never gets old!

Gord's Gold is # 1, then DonQuixote, Summertime Dream, and Sundown.

Most recently -- the song "Harmony" as it is my 2 yr old daughter's favorite song.

I love the songs on songbook!Especially the cuts that didn't make it on the albums.
"Lifelines" for one.He's tapping into something mystical there.
"The Lost Children" from Sunday concert is a song that I perform every once in a while.
Red Shea s figers flying,newcomer Rick Haynes on the bass playing wonderfully,Lightfoot's Gibson 12string ringing true.I'm only 32,but I know of incredible music when I hear it!

The CD:"Harmony" is closing in on "Sundown" and "IYCRMM,for being played most.
Especially in the last (almost) year and a half.

More recent song played the most:"End Of All Time".
