My goodness. This is the very song I was just about to introduce to someone:) Live from The Last Waltz even better.

Thought I might give this it's tenth listen. :) It kind of stays with you, being a really great song and all... - Britgirl

Rick Danko (RIP). Nuther good 'ol Canadian boy. Damn. That's three times, now. Must be losin' it.

5If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

Among the absolute best lyrics of all-time, and sung pretty damn well too.

" won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take..."

So beautiful and painful at the same time, as it captures so much feeling and thought accurately and directly - Billyv

Couldn't agree more, Billy. Arguably the most haunting expression of love gone wrong, ever. Exquisitely profound stream of consciousness. Almost Arthurian in ambiance. Some excellent cuts on this list, bud.
