Re: What Should Gordon Be Writing About Today?

The only question is, DOES Gord still write about anything? If I ever get to meet him in person, I'll ask him to record another 20 fine albums for us before retiring from songwriting. :)

Re: Calgary radio cutting songs to 2 minutes

Canadian Railroad Trilogy in 2 minutes simply tells us that there was once no railroad and that the forest was very quiet. :o

Re: Robin Williams - RIP

What's odd is that his character sought help for being depressed and suicidal in the movie Patch Adams. I just wish it could have turned out the way it in the movie. :(

Re: The Fitz lyric change

Listen to the recording on Summertime Dream album and then listen to it on Gord's Gold Vol. 2. There's actually several songs with minor changes in there.

Re: I Hate A Song

The song I'll Make A Man Out Of You from the Mulan soundtrack is pretty convicting; I sometimes play it before going to the gym.

Test country singer

I used to be a Corfi-dian
I could rouse a mean Violet Blue Horse
The Watchman he could tell jokes like a martyr
Borderstone was a real good friend of mine

Re: Birds at the end of 'Gotta Get Away'

Me too! I was surprised no one mentioned it. I'd say it's Gord's most upbeat song next to CYC.

I must confess, I never imagined Gord to be the football playing type. He did pole vaulting as well.

So the forum WAS down. I thought my PC had just been acting up. I had wanted to come on and wish Gord a happy birthday as well. At 73 years of age, he still has a lot of life ahead of him. :)
