By (somewhat) popular demand, as a follow up to my Gordon Lightfoot albums list, I present my ranked list of his top twenty-five songs. There are a few standards and a few surprises, but all of them are wonderful songs that I hope you enjoy as much as I do...
One of the few protest songs Lightfoot ever did, and my personal favorite GL song. I think this is a song with which most of us can relate. Who doesn't remember standing in front of their parents saying, "Hey. I'm an adult now," with our parents thinking, "Who IS this kid anymore?" see more on Sit Down Young Stranger
This is a thoughtful, well-written, pretty and heartbreaking song, and definitely would finish first on a list of Lightfoot songs I sing in the shower!
