Thanks for the great topic; here's mine:

1. Triangle
2. High and Dry
3. Restless (this song is so totally under my skin right now, I don't know why)
4. Mother of a Miner's Child
5. Shadows

For his encore he could do Christian Island!

Sit Down Young Stranger
If You Could Read My Mind
Restless
Drink Yer Glasses Empty

While deciding this, I was thinking of which songs would sound good a solo songs, songs that Gord has a strong guitar part on, ones that would work without his backup band.

I will take this topic to mean it doesn't necessarily matter if he normally doesn't play them live--that this is a complete "wish list!" Here are my current five (in no particular order):

I'll Tag Along
East of Midnight (the "light arrangement")
Miguel
Restless
Ballad of the Yarmouth Castle
Derek

I missed this one a while back, but it's such a great topic, I want to take a stab at it. In my response, I will assume that Gord is playing alone, without the band, and that the setting is a small coffee house in a seaside town in Nova Scotia, with an audience of about 10 (Lightfoot fans all). I am going to omit any song I've heard in concert (including Beautiful, Christian Island and SFAWN, each of which otherwise would be on my list), because I'm picturing this as an intimate setting and time to hear some rarities. In this setting, the mood is set by the smell of the coffee, the sound of the waves and the crackle of the fireplace.


On the High Seas
Affair on Eighth Avenue
Too Much To Lose

Our 5 songs are these:

1) Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
2) Steel Rail Blues
3) If You Could Read My Mind
4) The House You Live In
5) Carefree Highway

Please,Please come to our cabin Gord. I can grill you one hell of a good New York Strip steak and my wife makes AWESOME potato salad!

I have a feeling that Gord won't be coming so we will have plenty of food. We are going to take a portable CD player with plenty of Gordon Lightfoot CD's. I promise that if a stranger shows up at our door, and is willing to carry fire wood for food and music- we will cheerfully take you in, Feed you and listen to Gord!!!!!!

You know Lavender this 5 songs would be hard to limit. when I go back and review any of Gord's music it is hard not to change my list... And I thought my topic on the memory first was hard, ha! This is like the indecisive child in me that keeps rearranging all of the songs. Today feels like a day of protest, spring is not coming quickly enough, so let's protest.
What are Gord's greatest protest songs?

1)Long Way Back Home
2)Hi'way Songs
3)10 Degrees and Getting Colder
4)Seven Island Suite
5)Wild Strawberries

That's mighty hospitable of you, Titan! I actually hope Gordon Lightfoot DOES show up at your cabin and you all have a great time! What is life if you don't get to dream a little! Best wishes for a great vacation!

This one ain,t as tough as "list your favorite song",but it gives you a little playing space.They,d go about like this:
1)Minstrel of the Dawn
2)Knotty Pine
3)Ghosts of Cape Horn
4)Affair on 8th Avenue
5)All the Lovely Ladies
Now,if it were Gordy AND the Lightfoot Band,the list would read different.This list is just to hear Gord and his guitar.jack beanstalk

This is rather difficult. I will go with two weeks worth, i.e., first five in the first week and another five in the second:

Affair on 8th Avenue
Home from the Forest
If Children Had Wings
Second Cup of Coffee
Bitter Green

and for the 2nd week:

A Minor Ballad
That Same Old Obsession
Lazy Morning
Protocol
I'm Not Supposed to Care

and if there are substitutions:

Shadows
In My Fashion
A Lesson In Love
10 Degrees and Getting Colder
It's Worth Believin'

Bound for the Ghosts of Cape Horn
