Thanks for playing! Old Dan's Records the Gord classic takes the first showdown 12-2 over Uncle Toad Said. Here is showdown #2, two songs of regret about relationships that have "gone away." They are reflective and express a desire for something lost.

If You Could Read My Mind

or

Harmony

Which one do you enjoy the most?

Harmony . . .

Most likely because I haven't been playing it on stage for 30+yrs running. Gord lost count probably around "later that same year." It's become Gord's "Proud Mary" - both excellent Songs and Records (difference there, btw) And, far superior to becoming Gord's "My Ding-a-ling")

But, Harmony . . . there's a Muse there butterflitting about, staying just ever-so-barely beyond touch, like the teasing cat.

Yet, the touch . . . the touch will come.

. . . and falling warm asleep On Susan's Floor

IYCRMM.

I know it's one of Gord's calling cards, but the song weaves a story that really grabs my heart. When the song first came out, I wasn't quite old enough to understand about love and romance, but something in the song still touched me as a child and I can't explain why.

IYCRMM

Though if you had put that against Inspiration Lady, it'd be a tougher choice. I'd still probably go with IYCRMM.

Harmony is a great song, but I gotta go with IYCRMM. It was also the first record I ever bought.

IYCRMM-doesn't the pain get to you every time you hear it, even though you've heard it a thousand times?

Default Re: Showdown #2

Are you kidding me?

If You Can Read My Mind is an eternal classic.

Harmony is not even very interesting sing-song. If anyone other than Gord was singing it, I'd hate it.

IYCRMM, in a landslide.
