My CD Collection (3)

CDs for Friday, January 16 – U2, Gordon Lightfoot

U2, The Best of 1980-1990 – What to say about this CD? I love singles collections and greatest hits releases from my favorite bands, and this is no exception. The only songs I'm indifferent to are "When Love Comes To Town" and "Angel of Harlem." Other than those, this CD is flawless. I love the song "Bad."

Gordon Lightfoot, Gord's Gold – I don't care what kind of geek it makes me, I love Gordon Lightfoot! I even saw him perform one year on my birthday, at Ruth Eckerd Hall. And let me tell you, he was FABULOUS. Of course, the gems on this collection are "Sundown," "If You Could Read My Mind," and "Carefree Highway," but I'm also quite fond of "Canadian Railroad Trilogy," "Summer Side of Life," and "Cotton Jenny."

Sundown you better take care, if I've find youv'e benn sneaking round my back stairs...
Lightfoot had a long stay in the hospital a while back. I think he's ok now. He is Canadian ICON!

What about The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald?? It's six minutes and fourteen seconds of Gordo bliss. Or so TinyTuna would have you believe.

Be in love and listen to "If You Could Read My Mind"; it ranks as one of the top love songs. As for U2, there is always something good [except Zootropia]. You've made me want to revisit both.

Alas, "Wreck" is on Gord's Gold 2. Which I also have, and love.
