Re: NEW BOOK!-ONCE UPON A RED EYE-Life on the road with Gordon Lightfoot-Richard Hari

Re: Do you think the song ',For Lovin Me,' is chauvinistic?

Re: Which songs seem kind of 'non-GL' to you?

For me it would be 'Sometimes I Don't Mind'.

Sounds like it was written in a hurry to fill up space for the album.

Another would be 'Canary Yellow Canoe', as was mentioned earlier in this post.

Re: What do you like about Gordon Lightfoot?

For me, it is how he has become very laid back in his later years. He doesn't take himself too seriously. As I've stated in another post, my wife and I have met him 22 times since 1999, 8 or 9...
