My favorite song this week is 'Stay Loose' from East of Midnight. I wake up with the song in my head and it's there all day!

I've been listening to Gordon since the 70's. All his music is really good. I think my all time favorite of his is Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald. I never get tired of listening to it.

Shadows: I once had the moment of setting w/ Gord (w/Alan, Brennan&Robin) in the hotel room. I asked him about Shadows.

His response is one I'll never forget. He said, 'If I to l told you, then it wouldn't belong to you anymore.?

Wow, it was fun to read everyones favourites, as they included so many songs Gordon doesn't usually play. My favourites are "Affair on 8th Avenue" for a girl I dated and almost married in high school and shadows, because now I'm fifty two, and it's the way I feel about love....So many good choices Seven Islands, High and Dry, Summer Side of Life...if you're listening Gordie, play some of these if you travel east to Reno, or north to Mendicino....
Thanks, John Miatech in Sebastopol Calif (I gave you some crystals for the kids a few years back at Luther Burbank, remember?).

That's like asking a shark what his favorite food is! One of my favs is "I'll Do Anything" off the Shadows album. It's just a beautifully-arranged and played song. "Miguel", and "The Circle is Small" are also great songs. But, I really like "Inspiration Lady" off the Harmony album. In fact, we're naming our new yacht "Inspiration Lady."

I've been taking in the many earlier pages of folk's favorites. It's a fine road to travel (Fine as Fine Can Be?)

But, I must take this moment to say that after first hearing of Brave Mountaineers, I've never since worn a wrist watch.

I'd already wanted to do that when Captain America tossed his away in '69. The Brave Mountaineers, never much bothered by time you know, made me stick to it.

I know the music since 1972 and have been to a live concert in Amsterdam.

My favourite songs depends on my mood but these are my favourites: "Afair on 8th avenue", "A long way back home", "Carefree Highway", "Restless feeling" are amongst the top 10 for me.

I loved Sundown!

Actually, I first heard it on Homestarrunner.com.

Ghost Of Cape Horn
Why? I guess because I remember listening to it as a kid in the 70's & 80's and it sort of putting me in this far off slightly erie place mentally. I could picture every part of the song in my head and placed myself in it and felt the emotions of the characters. It still scares the hell out of me, but I love it.

My favorite Gordon Lightfoot song is "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald". I am a former sailor and I HAVE been through 2 different hurricanes (David and Frederic) and I KNOW just exactly what it feels like...how helpless you are when there are 100 mph winds and HUGE waves out in the middle of nowhere. You cannot merely "pull off the road" so to speak. It is not a good feeling.

November 10, 1975
This year is 30 years. My fellow sailors will NOT be forgotten. Here is my personal tribute to them I hope you enjoy and think of them as I do. Amen

Hello from Russia!
I think "Sundown" album is a real brilliant. It's hard to name the loveliest song... Possibly, Carefree Highway. However, I love Too Late For Praying very much

What makes Gordon Lightfoot my favorite all-time singer/songwriter is his ability to reach people of all age groups and locales, and the fact that his music is just so timeless, profound, and memorable. I'm new to this site and must agree with the posts that liken his degree of fame to other music legends like Lennon, Dylan, etc. I can ramble endlessly about how he 'stikes every chord' of emotion and sings about so many different people, places, and experiences, but many of you have already given him that wonderful tribute. Many Thanks. What makes this gifted man so remarkable to me is the fact that through it all, he has remained a humble and 'ordinary man' in his mannerism and personality. It's refreshing to see such rare and admirable qualities in a world-reknown artist in today's age of glitz and glammor. Choosing a favorite song/s would be most difficult, but if I must,.... well,....OK, here goes: 1. Home From the Forest 2. Highway Songs 3. Song For a Winter's Night 4. The Watchman's Gone 5. Looking At the Rain ---- A decade ago I crawled out of the bottle for the last time, so song # 1 really does hit 'home', and it serves as a haunting reminder of what could have been. Song #2 resonates over and over as I'm traversing the scenic backroads of America on my Harley Softail. Song #3 conjers the image of my soulmate(who I've yet to meet) and I taking a horse drawn sleigh ride through the snow covered countryside on a cold, starry night. Song #4 bespeaks the 'watchman' inside of us all(our own human limitations), and how much better life could be if we could know that 'the watchman's gone'. Song #5 touches the heart of everyone who has lost someone. Finally, If ever I get the golden opportunity to meet Gordon in person, I would have to thank him for the gift of his music, and that his words carried me through my dark times, as well as made the happy times even brighter. How often does someone we've never met before become one of our best friends through their music?
