Default Re: Two Gord songs on an Aussie's funeral album

JohnFowles,

I enjoyed your last two replies, including the videos of the amazing 10-string Spanish guitarist and Ireland's Mary Black. I'm glad you enjoyed the Brassed Off movie version of "En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor", which had the late Pete Postlethwaite conducting Tara Fitzgerald's just-arrived flugelhorn player. (The flugelhorn you hear in it was by a male member of the Grimethorpe Colliery Band which recorded the movie soundtrack.)

My abovementioned sister wrote a blog article "You can thank me later: How DIY Woman selected her own funeral music and saved her children hours of work":

Towards the end of the article, she wrote: "I’ve helped one of my brothers make his Funeral Tracks and 15 Other Classics. He is not expecting to need it any time soon, but if I had to listen to one more Gordon Lightfoot song, he just might have." She must have said it tongue-in-cheek to get a laugh. During my project, she only listened to two Lightfoot songs, and she's always loved his music!
