do you ever hear a Gord song, and as you listen to it, you think of a certain member on here?

"No Mistake about It" reminds me of Member# 366.

"Rainbow Trout" reminds me of Sheryl.

"The Watchman's Gone" reminds me of,... you guessed it. Watchman! (Although it doesn't "feel so good, knowin the Watchman's gone' )

'Georgia on my mind' isn't a Gord song but it sure reminds me of you, James. :D

Duh I think sheryl was possibly quoting from the lyrics
"Swimming upstream in the world
And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
Then she gave one flip of the rainbow tip of her tail
And she swam back down "

Er Um
You possibly have not picked up on the fact that Bru as well as wearing 6 inch heels is a dizzy blonde, so as well as having
more fun, she is liable to make strangely incomprehensible comments.In this case before she revealed that her question on
the apparent song entited "Have I lost my way?!" was couched in "ironic" terms I mistakenly took it at its face value as yet
another blonde aberation and showed another such example of how a blond might have trouble playing noughts and crosses/tic

Jessi Joe, if you think Sir John aimed an insult at you, just read the above post about blondes. He does it to me all the time. He means no harm -
it's his wierd Brit humour. But having said that, I may have to slap him when I next see him.


Oh ... wait on ... he might enjoy that ...

Hey John,that's my favorite "Simpsons;Tree House Of Horror" segment! I love it when Homer and Bart become 3-D and that Tron like universe is a trip too! :D

Let's see "Don Quixote" for you John because you're British and Knights are British/English.

Sheryl,I agree on "Rainbow Trout" becauae sometimes your compliments put color in my face.

Brink would be "The House You Live In" because I think she lives by those ideas.

I'll try to think of more!

Yes, I can see The House You Live In relating to Brink. She's a wonderful person and it fits perfectly.

On a personal level, Changes reminds me of my first real love.

Alberta Bound would be me, as though I lived in the Toronto area for 35 years, I never really cared for it. But I LOVE the west, and it always felt like home to me even though I was always a visitor and never a resident.

And how many of us here at Corfid, though not nearly as famous as Gord, will relate to A Painter Passing Through when we hit the 60s years?

The song Christian Island, "I called her Silverheels, and she tells me how she feels.

Hello to Sir John, my friend. Yes I do know what you mean by Home(R) from the forest. But the rest of that wonderful GL song, ain't to off either. ("His eyes were red his hopes were dead) and the wine is a running low, for the old man came home from the forest." That great song could apply to so many homeless in this world, that it is almost another masterpiece, for GL. Im not home less nor a wino. But you never know how you gone a end up in this life. My hopes have been dead, many times. Thanks Sir John. Your a good man... :D
