I'd be surprised if you guys dont also think so...what do you think, rm?
To be honest, the way the remembrance was worded, I thought "Thursday" was the song he was referring to. But then the moderator chimed in with "I Got A Name". The lyrics fit like a glove. Since they did fit, I couldn't acquit.

I agree the style of "Thursday" has a Lightfoot feel to it. It's one of the reasons that I've carried it around all these years.
