First visit first post.
My favourite s are
The Last Time I Saw Her. and
I'm Not Supposed to Care.
Home From The Forest.
I love so many of Gordon's songs but these three always bring tears to my eyes.
He has a way of plucking at the heart strings.
I first saw Gordon Lightfoot when he hosted a series of TVshows here in the UK way back in 1963.
I have been a fan ever since.
Unfortunately he never tours here, so we feel a bit deprived.

Hello Katrine! I'm new here too (and also in the UK, so I can really, truly sympathise with you!) I've read about the 1963 TV shows, though I don't remember (I was just one year old at the time!) - though I did catch up as soon as I could! (around 1975!)

And my favourite song? Well, this is impossible, isn't it? I give up an give in (forever) .

But tonight (and only for tonight) I can only look at what I have on "repeat play" at the moment - "Much to my Surprise" (yes, much to my surprise). This song just makes me think of my closest friend and soul-mate. We two really are "two brave souls on a wild blue spree"! (though we will never pass each other by in the dark!)

And tomorrow I will (probably) have a different answer to this question! (yesterday my answer was different!)

Now I think of it all my favourite songs are linked with people I love or have loved. And this must say something about the power of this writing!

I've seen it said so many times that my mother's **parrot** is now trained to say, "You can't pick just one Gordon Lightfoot song. Brrr-AWK!"

"Carefree Highway" recently pulled me through a very difficult time, though I must point out that my up-and-down health has been back "down" today, and since my mother is not a fan (Shame on her!) I have difficulty listening when I want to. I'm staying in Mom's house until I get my own place in my hometown, and it's pretty much, "My house, my say" around here. Even when I use my headphones, she interrupts and *talks* all the way through it, and I can't listen. GRRRRR. I've told her what happened and the effect his music has on me, but all she cares about is what *she* likes.

Oops. Sorry about the tangent. I'm not feeling well, need GL's help and can't get it, maybe fellow fans can make a suggestion.

GL wrote "Fine as Fine Can Be" in honor of his daughter. My daughter's name is Elizabeth, and it so happened I heard FAFCB for the first time on my way home, while pasing through Elizabethtown, KY. So I felt a connection there too, and his performance of it left me absolutely saucer-eyed. I think maybe, if my mother lets me listen uninterrupted, I can use it as an affirmation, telling myself, "You're as fine as fine can be," i.e., "You're not sick, you're fine."

Then there's "Race Among the Ruins," which to me tells about picking up your life and going on after devastation.

Ironically from RATR: "Even though your mother is your maker, from her apron strings you pass." Ya hear that, Mom?

I apologize for the negativity. I promise I was only trying to answer a question.

For now, my newest favorite song is going to have to be "Welcome To Try". I really like the lyrics and the tune as well. It's about being strong. And it can mean several different things. Actually, DMD1(who just passed away 2 weeks ago)would sing that song because he's going to heaven and now he will never be lead astray again.

Hi Mair,
What brought Me to this site wAs to download some lyrics and chords to send to a new young singer/songwriter of great potential, namely Alistair Griffin who found many dedicated followers during the Fame Academy talent show. He struck me as having many of the qualities of Gordon Lightfoot.
His songs strike the heart strings.
Robin Gibb suported him all the way through and continues to do so.
I don't know if he is familliar with the huge volume of songs by our great Canadian legend, but I intent to make sure he discovers them.

Oh, please do, Katrine!

I supported (and voted for!) Alistair right from the start. Yes, I so agree with you - such a talent! And such an amazing songwriter!

I landed here unexpectedly too, about a week ago. Strangely enough, I was only searching for some historical information about the ship Yarmouth Castle for a friend I've been "working on" for a while and have been trying to "infect"! And here I am - I ended up here!

I listened to one of tapes before bed last night. Tape 3:"Your Love's Return" and everytime I hear that,it takes me back to all the girls/women I've loved. No wonder I like that song and chose it for the title! Later!

Whatever do you mean?

But ... I do love that song too - so romantic and in such an old fashioned way .. 3/4 time too, so uncommon (but not exclusive) these days! (even those days!) One I could listen to until the end of time!

And - in response to this thread - I haven't even started thinking about my favourite song yet!

I've had the "IYCRMM" album for quite awhile now, and I still haven't gotten into that song yet. You come on to some songs slower than you do others.

Small world isn't it Mair!
Have you joined 'The Army' yet?
I found Alistair-Griffin.co.uk in early September. Over 5200 members already.
He would appreciate the songwriting skills of the legendery Gordon.

I swear,when and if I ever find the time,I'm going to put togehter a top 100 or even 200 best Gordon Lightfoot song list. They're all kind of "best" since were all sympatico here but the list would more than likely reflect what songs I would listen to first before others (a very narrow margin ). Also,being in personal taste or preference.

"Pony Man" & "Your Love's Return", definetely top 10! Later!

Thank you Katrine! Just been there!

Yes, I'm always being amazed at how small the world is, especially these days! But you must have guessed that I (and anyone else here!) would love Alistair Griffin's music.

And, Borderstone - The Pony Man and Your Love's Return? No arguments here!!!

Chances are, you won't find that kind of time. Even I won't.
