Cathy and Bro10, Glad you agree on Beautiful, but I am slowly downloading what may be it now, I'm not sure - its described in French, with Gord, and includes the word "Beautiful". i.e. avel le Chanson "Beautiful" I believe it said.. its coming in in bits now and sure enough its the song ! Beautiful !

With my dial-up, and me being SOL as its been said, (oh, all I gotta do is set up a seperate DSL or cable T[n]line, where [n = 10 or 100] out here I believe, from Comcast, or even DSL, thas all I gotta do, oh and another seperate phone line aaagggh ! $$$$ LOL), its slow loadin' , but sure as heck it is Beautiful the song. Hooray!


I agree with both of ya on Drink Yer Glasses Empty. I heard two version sof the meaning of that song. One was allegedly per Gord - that he lost an older brother while quite young to flying bombers or hellcat fighters in WWII, or a 2nd version of this.

You two recall ? I think it may have been in the songbook "book", which is packed way in a box somewhere now. Teejay and team's work is fantastic ! Do I understand correctly that Teejay is the one that changed his "handle" in corfid to the native Canadian word Gahoendoe ?
He is truly a remarkable artist in many senses.

Gord lost an older brother? No, I doubt it. As far as I know, there's just him and his sister, Bev.

Is the French version of Beautiful one of Yves' songs?

Cant rush artistic genius, I agree GeoSteve. But one song that a lot of us have said at one time or another, to be our favorite would be, "Seven Island Suite."

Just wondering Gahoendoe? Your the master.
