The tally so far:

Old Dan's Records 15 Uncle Toad Said 2
IYCRMM 13 Harmony 1

OK, I guess the first two were no surprise. Those classic Gord songs are near and dear to our hearts. This one may require more thought. Here are two songs that are openers for two of Gord's more recent (term is used loosely!) albums. They seem to create a similar mood and the melodies are light and playful. Let's see which one you love the most.

Drifters, but I always liked the live version better than the cut that made it to the album. It always seemed to flow more easily and I think it is a perfect touring song!
