I’ve waxed poetic about Leonard Cohen in the past, and now it’s time to give another Canadian folk legend his due. Gordon Lightfoot has had an illustrious musical career spanning several decades but, like Cohen, remains earnest and down-to-earth about his fame and his success. Several Lightfoot songs can make me teary-eyed, but The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald is a favourite.
