In your opinion, what makes a person a 'Lighthead'? To me it's anyone who is familiar with Gords music besides all of his most widely known hits, such as "Sundown", "Carefree Highway", or "The Wreck of the E.F". I have nothing agains those songs, but everyone knows them.

someone who believes that his best songs are not necessarily the hits (but some of which could be)

Someone that recognizes the value within the fabric of his valuable tapestries, the multi-dimensionality of the music and words. Someone that recognizes that his music transcends time and sounds, has as much meaning today as it did when written.
Loves the music, so much, they is drawn to search and want to understand the music in all it's layers, words, melody etc.

Someone who plays "Carefree Highway" off his "Complete Greatest Hits" 500 times in a row, even if it is one of his better known songs. Then that same someone buys his sixty-something-dollar anthology "Songbook" and discovers his lesser-known songs (in this country anyway) and likes them just as much, and instantly becomes a member of one of his fansites. Then that same somebody wants to buy all his other available albums too, so she can find out about songs that she doesn't have. Plus that same someone is on a news mailing list and is awaiting health updates and tour date information. And is praying earnestly for his full and complete recovery.

In short, me.

I'll have to agree with you on that, DMD. Anyone who likes a lot of his songs that are not hits.

There is a wide variety of music I listen
to.GL is one of my favourites, and in my
oppinion in GL's case, his most famous
songs are his best. I understand your
question, and true, an artists most well
known pieces are not always his or hers
best, but i think in Gordons case, they are.
