Since to most of us Corfidians, Gordon Lightfoot Is # 1. Have you got a # 2 Canadian singer, that would be # 1, if there were no Gordon Lightfoot. What a terrible thing to even think off ,No Gordon Lightfoot... :D





For me # 2 Canadian singer songwriter, Bruce Cockburn.





American # 1 John mellencamp

#2 Canadian? Bryan Adams! Saw him in Aug. 1985 in concert and he brought the house down! Yeah! I even dressed like him for the show! :D

Ah,to be 17!

I have no American male singer fav. or American group for that matter. Too many to like.

My choice would be Joni Mitchell. Her catalogue is very impressive and she is a truly great songwriter. If Gordon is Canada's unofficial poet laureate, I nominate Joni for the title of poetess laureate!

Stan Rogers, without a doubt. A great songwriter...and that booming baritone! Can't help but wonder about all the music he would have given us had he lived.

Dear Stan Rogers, May we never forget him. Were the words of Adrienne Clarkson, after narrating a program about him.'One Warm Line.' But I hate to admit I had forgot about him.

Very good choice Halocat.

Burton Cummings & Randy Bachman, two more greats.

Anne Murray. She rivals Gord as the top Canadian musical performer.

While I never actually followed her career, I'd have to go along with Anne Murray. I do have a few of her albums and love them.
