Definitely for me, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald is my all-time favourite GL song. I have many relatives in da UP (Northern Michigan) and I heard this song endlessly as a child. A great historical folk tune that tears at the heartstrings and never ages.

Hi Jen F.! Borderstone here,I take it you are new,if so,welcome to our happy home. No,it's not my site (I wish!) but just a friendly GL fan saying hi.

Somehow,even though I'm from around Erie,PA and lived there from birth in '68 to 8 & 1/2 in 1977,somehow,I never got to hear it on the radio! Then I most likely could call it my all time fav. of GL's.

I love it too but I've heard it so often in the past 20+ years,I'm just simply comfortable with it. Meaning,it's always great to hear,just every now and then though.
I also have a lot of fav's now,so one just isn't enough.

Once again,welcome!

That is the way I have been wanting to describe it for 15 years! Best thing is,it is one of the most requested tunes at my gigs(USA gigs that is)and I never get tired of the looks on people's faces! It is always:


"My goodness! He really is going to perform it! I wonder if he can remember all the words?!"


Oh how many tips I have recieved for playing that tune. Yes,'comfortable' is definetly the word to use. Thank you for saying it that way. !

You're welcome G.V.!
Y'know..I'm that way with just about all of my record collection too. I've heard all the great songs and artists for so long,that unlike when I was younger,I don't have to hear it every 5 mins. or so.
(Although,I did play,"End Of All Time",4 times in a row the other day! ) Still new! Later!
