This one comes with a story. 

Junior's mother is a Gordon Lightfoot fan.  Not sure how she ended up that way, but it is what it is.  We all have our crosses to bear, and hers are Gordon Lightfoot, Adam Ant, and Elton John.  How she ended up with me music wise is still a mystery.

Anyway, when she went into labor with Junior, I had a cassette player and a set of small speakers with me in The Bag.  The two cassettes I remembered to bring with me were Lightfoot's greatest hits album, and Dr. Feelgood by Motley Crue.  We didn't want to disturb the other patients, so we went with Lightfoot.  We had that tape on automatic flip, so it played over and over during the hours of labor.  Junior was born just as the chorus to this one came up for what I thought must have been the 50th time.  I haven't been able to listen to Gordon Lightfoot since then without cringing.

Also, today is the anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, so I thought I'd share.

That's a nice song that Gordon did to remember the Edmund's crew. I always let it play when it comes on the radio, and I catch myself singing along.

Thanks DB
