Default A New "Lightfoot Lovesongs" CD

Hypothetically speaking (sorry if I got your hopes up but I couldn't help myself ):

If there were to be a CD released of Gordon Lightfoot love songs, and assuming you were invited to choose one and only one song to be included on that CD, what would it be? My first choice would be:

1. Softly

Thankfully, via the Wonderment of the Digital Domain,
there exists such an album;

Thankfully, I've been blessed to select the music;

Each song crossfades into the next; as

The Suite begins and ends with: *I'm Not Supposed to Care*

The Aspects of Love expressed betwix the album's first tone and final fade,
just happen to be each of your selections . . . even those to come.

My bet is that he will choose his all time favorite of My Love For You. B'stone is the biggest fan of that song.

I'd say 18 or 20, and we could always make it a Double CD. Absolutely there is room for Shadows!

Here's what we have so far:

1. Softly (Gitchigumee)
2. Thank You For The Promises (Jesse Joe)
3. If I Could (RM)
4. If You Need Me (Claudia)
5. The Last Time I Saw Her Face (mnmouse)
6. Now and Then (GJA)
7. Inspiration Lady (brink-)
8. Fine as Fine Can Be (joveski)
9. I'm Not Supposed to Care (The Rez)
10. Your Love's Return (Rainbow Trout)
11. Beautiful (Kathy in Michigan)
12. My Love For You (Borderstone)
13. Shadows (Tim)
