Vera,

this would be 'Now and Then'


"As I wander I return, to days gone by there’s much to be learned"


If Gordon could read all this, I bet he would have a fit of laughter. Here we are, his biggest fans, reciting great lyrics from 20 Albums we have memorized like it would be our phone number...

Yes, Claudia, as I said before, we are all severe nut cases (völlig bekloppt). But I sure learned a lot from those beautiful lyrics- and what we love is easily remembered. One of these days I have to talk about that exam I once took and me and a friend (also a big fan) were accused of cheating, because we -sitting next to each other- were the only persons of about 150 who knew what words??- muskeg and navvies. The title of the translation was-you already guessed it- The building of the railroad!!So we went home, grabbed our LPs and put them on the Dean`s desk . Cheating-ha.! We were off the hook, but were advised not to give the ´thumbs up´sign next time. So now I told the story already. Vera

That is a very funny story, Vera. No wonder, nobody but you and your friend knew those two words as they're certainly not found in your every day conversation. So Gordon even helped to get good grades...

Are you torturing your students now with those obscure words??? Before an excam you could give a hint that it wouldn't hurt to listen to this or that Lightfoot tune and memorize the lyrics. Not only would they learn beautiful poetry but the youngsters get also introduced to one of the greatest singer/songwriters. Two birds with one stone, so to speak... :D

Quite right,Claudia, just two weeks ago I started a new teaching unit - subject: "The Red Man"- with our beloved song ´Cherokee Bend`.The girls liked it a lot, the boys not that much -not cool enough, I suppose.But of course I tell all my students to closely listen to their respective favorite music for reasons stated above.

Hey Brink,glad you got my brain teaser! :D

I'm sure Gord would take this as compliment...as well as laughing hysterically. :D

Okay,next one:

"...and the seeds of the earth that were planted long ago still yield a better harvest..."

You realize this game could go on forever! There are so many great phrases.

I'm stumped on that one Borderstone.

Good job Joveski,yep it was "The Soul Is The Rock".

Paul F. the name of the song you're thinking of is "Cabaret".

Here's my next one:

"Is it really true,that you can never really win" ?
