However, I am surprised that there seems to be no acknowledgement of the passing of Gordon Lightfoot. He was truly an outstanding songwriter. Many legendary musicians and fellow-songwriters thought so, including Bob Dylan, Harry Belafonte ( who also died very recently) and Johnny Cash.
Gordon Lightfoot wrote so many timeless songs, it's hard to pick just one to post here. But I think I'll go with one of his most popular, since I remember when it first came out.
