I'm a taxi driver by profession, anyway last week I installed a CD player in my cab and lastnight I had Waiting For You in the deck, had it playing at a moderate level and I picked up this middle aged passenger and she was obviously humming along to it...she said" is that Lightfoot?" I said yup... showed her the CD and said this one is out of print. She thanked me for playing something that didn't blow her ears out and handed me a 5 dollar tip . I asked her if she had heard he put out Harmony, she said ya but she hasn't heard it yet.

germangordfan This really is another Gord. He has a Gordon fan website too.
Good going Gord. You might push Harmony to the top singlehandedly.

Brink - I knew this. My response actually belonged to the post from "Gordon Lightfoot" and his suggestion to send $4 ...

I have played the rarities discs, except most people who aren't diehard Lightfoot fans wouldn't know they are rare songs. Other artists get popped in the deck as well... I must have got 15 dollars in tips lastnight. The deck itself cost about $114...

Good idea though Joveski

You did indeed reply to my original posting as (unregistered) gordon lightfoot but I saw a typo and as I had posted unregistered could not edit my posting therefore I registered that name for my own future use and then in error after copying my reply to my clipboard I deleted the reply instead of merely editing it hence when I posted back my original tongue-in-cheek comment it was out of sequence. I must try harder in future!!!

Well Gord,looks like being a taxi driver makes you the Harry Chapin of the website!!

"I got Gordon playin' in ma' taxi...when I'm stoned!!"
(I know you not doin' that but that's the way the song goes! )

Are you an independent or do you have a "Louie DePalma" type boss???


"Reiger!" "CAB 804!" "Yeah,the one with bald tires!!"

"Oooh,tank you vetty mutch!"

"Whaaaaat.....dooooes.....aaaaaaaaa......yeeeeeeee elllllll-oooooooowwww liiiiiight MEAN???!" Good-night Mr. Walters! Uuunngh!
