Why Do We Love Gordon Lightfoot?
Canadian singer-songwriter, Gordon Lightfoot is still going strong at beyond 80 and we wanted to give our gratitude for his music in our hearts and minds. I grew up with his music on my WABC radio. "Sundown" "If You Could Read My Mind" and "Rainy Day People" were popular tunes and his name was quickly a household word back then. His warm, textured voice is comforting in any situation. When he sings of tragedy, such as the "Wreck Of the Edmund Fitzgerald" you want to listen and hear the story, because he reflects the tales from the subject's perspective.
