Happy 80th birthday (17 November 2018) Gordon Lightfoot! - Britgirl
I've always liked this song, but it's the title and first line that speaks volumes... - Britgirl
So many great allusions, heartfelt lyrics. A bulls-eye hit on reality of heartbreak, a deep romantic love that just can't workout to a happy ending.
"... You won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take." - Billyv

The story of a haunting event with an electric yet ethereal sound. This song stands above the typical beautiful Gordon Lightfoot songs.
I love songs that tell stories. This is one of the best. - beatles
My wife and I love to vacation on Lake Superior, so this song always haunts me. I remember the night it happened: November 10, 1975.
This has to be the best song by Gordon Lightfoot ever. Defintely better than most of Lightfoot's music; beats the Beatles hands down.UListen to Sample

One of the best love songs ever written, in my opinion. I saw him in Minneapolis a few years back and it was one of the quietest concerts I had ever been to. You could talk to the person next to you, no problem! Even while the music was going on! Great voice, great songwriter, I think Lightfoot might be the most underrated songwriter of all time.
Gordon is amazing. We saw him 2 years ago in Detroit. So many great tunes and a brilliant lyracistUListen to Sample
