List Rules I've decided to stick to only songs that Lightfoot wrote himself. No covers...

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!

I prefer Gord's more touching and poignant songs, but this little ditty is upbeat and promising, both to the girl in the song and to the listener. see more on Go My Way
