    I was working in the basement today when the wife caught me rocking out to this:



    Even my Canadian roommate in college would roll his eyes if I put this song on. I dunno...I've just always loved this song. Great story, great nautical feel, and actually it turned me onto Gordon Lightfoot in general. Loving the cold, the outdoors, and ice hockey gives me a soft spot for Canadians I guess.

    Ahh, If You Could Read My Mind................. one of my 2 favorite Karaoke songs that I can actually do a pretty good job on, the other is "My Maria"



    Yes I love that one too. A big fan of Gordon here also................. but my favorite of his is "Canadian Railroad Trilogy", another great story.............. and I lived the cold outdoors playing hockey in Buffalo too. Would buz over the bridges and spend a lot of time in Canada in my younger years, grew up on good canadian brews!

    omg, i catch sooo much hello from my daughter,

    im eclectic when it comes to music, have everything from public enemy to hanson in my mp3. old johnny cash, waylon, beck, beasties, marshal tucker,

    as for ABBA's dancing queen, a group named "a-teens" did a credible cover of it a couple years ago (video mimic'd the breakfast club, even had the same guy that played the principle in it)

    If it helps, my nieces and nephews from Montana just died about a half an hour ago as I went word-for-word on "Straight outta Compton" NWA.

    Love Chris Cornell! I'm kicking around the idea of buying tix to a festival they're playing this spring.

    Best album. rap or otherwise.

    best album? debatable (rap wise , possibly, was quite good and i still play it) but overall its too broad a spectrum for one single album to be "best" album

    heck, my absolute fav album of all time is Robert Cray's "strong persuader" bad thing is not many folks know of him, fantastic guitarist, saw him live in El Paso tx. on that tour, been a huge fan ever since.

    Well it's all subjective, so I get to say that and be spot on.

    That collaboration, and that album in particular, combined the funk of the 70's with the electric beats of the 80's, threw in a large dose of anarchy, and changed the music scene as we know it. They paved the way for hip hop---the dominant culture of modern music.


    I have listened to that Robert Cray album quite a few times.

    Love this song. Makes me smile every time I hear/watch it.

    I'm not going to post a link, but you can find it on YouTube with something like almost 80million views. There is some (but not a ton) foul language, so be warned.

    Ohhhh, almost forgot about my favorite "acapela" group's cover of that song. Watch their clean version and then some of their other songs, they are awesome.
