The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald raised goosebumps up and down my body when I first heard it many, many years ago. I am listening to it right now (Itunes), and it still has the same effect on me.

One of my friend's mom absolutely refuses to listen to Wreck. She heard it right after it hit the charts and it creeped her out, like she was having an anxiety attack, just thinking of what the men on the ship must have gone through that night.
She loves Lightfoot music, but she will not listen to Wreck.

Same with my wife. Gord is one of her favourite artists, but Wreck gets a skip as she refuses to listen to it.

I suppose my favorite is Canadian Railroad Trilogy. Both my wife and I really enjoy all of his music. We've done extensive traveling throughout the US as part of my work, and listening to his music has created some very special memories. We got see him in Phoenix, Az while we livng there in the mid 80's, and then again in the early 90's in Chicago. We hope this man sings on forever!

Oh, so many. GL has the capacity to condense the best and worst of what we are into a few verses and color them with music to lighten the soul. But I always have to listen intently to the backup singers on the "Summer Side of Life." There is a lady with a wide vibrato there who gives me shivers every time I hear that song. God bless the musicmakers.

I have been a fan of GL for many years.As for a Favorite song there are far to many to put down. But the ones that have left an impression would have to be 1. Black Day In July. Growing up in southwestern Ontario I remember only to well the riots in Detroit. 2. Go Go Round, only because it reminds me of a very special friend.
GL is more that just a song writer/singer, he is a story teller, and history teacher.
His songs and music will be remembered for many generations to come.

Haven't been in here for a while. It's just amazing that this topic is still kicking after almost 5 years! Says a lot about Gord's fans... I just took a driving trip to Wash DC and, naturally, had some GL CD's with me. Thought of a subset of my all time favorites - driving tunes....
Start with Early Morning Rain, move on to the Trilogy, throw in some Alberta Bound, Don Q and Patriot's Dream. Get out Old Dan's Records, Did She Mention My Name and Daylight Katy and Sundown. Add a little Christian Island and Rainbow Trout and the miles just melt by......

I find all of GL songs interesting, on the subject of who's who. Does anyone know (even your mother) who "Bitter Green" might be?

My favortie song by Mr. Lightfoot would definetly be narrowed down to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald". Not only does it hold some of the best lyrics ever recorded but the simple melody leaves me breathless everytime I hear it. And as a lifetime fan I invite you to come over on the east coast and let the people of nova scotia and people at the "Stan Rogers Folk Festival" hear and enjoy your music as much as I do!

I would just love to attend a Stanfest, especially if Gord played in it.
When is it this year? Stan is my second favorite singer/songwriter.
