Most of the acts the rest of you have named are favorites of mine also. Recently,Ive been revisiting my Elton John cassettes though. No special reason,unless finally snapping up all of his hits could be called a reason. http://www.corfid.com/ubb/wink.gif

Included in my daily rotation of Gordon are
John Denver
The Young Dubliners
Johann Lowenberg
Michael Buble
Cold play
Jeff Bridges
John Fogerty/creedence Clearwater
Anne Murray
And Paul Williams.
Aside from Cold Play, I fear this list is a representation of an "older middle aged" person. Hmmm....

Joveski, I'm sure the Corfid population would love to hear how you got to kiss the lead singer of The Corrs! The closest I got was the upper deck at Rod Laver Arena when they finished their world tour in Melbourne a decade ago. They haven't toured Australia since then and, due to having babies etc, don't seem to be an ongoing band. That's a pity, because it's probably the one concert I could get my kids to come to.

the Fox FM rooftop concert they did in 2000 as a special promo tour. i won tickets and there were only 30 winners up there. i saw them at rod laver in 1998 and 2001 too. Apparently Sharon is touring NZ soon cause of new solo album, rumours only

i've also kissed nelly furtado at the mercury lounge in her early days - when she was a bird!

I'm always listening to Marillion and Magnum (well, they are my two favourite bands).

I've also been on one of my periodic kicks of listening to a lot of Harry Chapin just lately.

Enjoyed Justin Hayward's "Spirits Of The Western Sky" solo cd from last year. Got an advance copy of Ian Anderson's "Homo Erraticus" which comes out in March...very good.
Believe it or not, thought Katy Perry's "Prism" was pretty good and sonically state of the art.
Suzanne Vega's "Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles" really good.

My car stereo has a 6-CD changer, which my kids assure me is a dinosaur, and eventually I will need to use an iPod with a USB cable, or something like that. When the time comes, hopefully they will help me figure out how it all works.

But in the meantime, 2 of the 6 slots belong to Gordon. The other four currently are being occupied by Phosphorescent, Barenaked Ladies, Blue Rodeo, and Mumford and Sons. Jim Croce, Jack Johnson, and Johnny Cash all get their chances too.

what's the deal with duplicate posts?? Duplicate reviews from different members.

Re: Who else are you listening to?
 
There are so many great musicians who I admired.I listen to a lot of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elvis and QUEEN. But I dearly love Emmylou Harris. And there's Tom Russell who is one who could be considered America's version of Gordon Lightfoot. Tom's songs are like an open history book detailing not only the building of America but also with the world itself. Through both Gordon and Tom's music, I can step out of my day and travel to anywhere in the world to wherever they want to take me. Although I like Bob Dylan, his music has never been able to do that to me. When I listen to a songwriter, I want to live his or her song for those three to five minutes of listening time. Gordon's music allows me that opportunity. I sometimes almost feel as if I should be a Canadian citizen.

Re: Who else are you listening to?
 
it seems when an old thread is pulled up and relied to many posts are dupes and attributed to another person. I think it started several years ago when Florian updated the site..When I see them I try to figure out who the correct poster is and delete the others..

I hadn't noticed any duplicate posts on this thread. That must be due to the efforts of Quick Draw McChar ;)
