Dear Gord, I sincerely hope that you have a wonderful 60th birthday. I guess that I am one of your younger fans, but I think that your music is simply wonderful. I cry everytime I hear "If You Could Read My Mind," although I have probably heard it over a hundred times. I think that "The Last Time I Saw Her" is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard in my life. Anyhow, I wish you the best on this important day and I also wish you well as you continue giving the world wonderful music. May God Bless You, Sir!

Favorite album or CD: It would probably take me at least until Gord's 70th to choose, and with the grace of Gord, there'd be at least 2 or 3 more choices to complicate my decision!

Comments:
Gord--I wish the very best for you on this milestone occasion! Many years ago though it seems like yesterday, someone brought a tape deck to a camp work weekend--no way, I thought, guitars only, until I heard Sit Down Young Stranger, et al, coming out of those speakers. I spent every possible second wearing out that 8-track and putting it back in whenever anyone turned their backs. A lifelong love was born and my Mom was soon a fan as well, and she joins me in wishing you a very Happy Birthday! Thank y u not only for a lifetime of enjoyment, but also for your graciousness after concerts, chatting and photos, and especially for the memories I hold so fondly of hearing you sing Sit Down Young Stranger so beautifully in the Gordon Lightfoot Auditorium on 1 /18/97 and of meeting you there for the first time. You look great, you sound great, and each new song is yet another masterpiece from the greatest singin' songwriter of all time. May you stay well, enjoy life and family, and continue to write and perfo m for many years to come! You are one of a kind as your many fans will attest! "And I love you just in case you didn't know!" Happy Birthday! Susan

Since seen him in Philadelphia three times, Virginia State Fair and Van Wezel hall in Sarasota Florida. Looking forward to his return on March 4, 1999 in Sarasota. Best song writer there ever was!! Happy 60th Gord.

Favorite album or CD: Sundown, early UA recordings

Comments:
In 1970 during my freshman year you gave a concert at Lehigh University. I didn't go (I didn't know who you were), but a fellow student did go and became a big Lightfoot fan. One year later he was rooming next to me, and I kept hearing him play the same song over and over again on his guitar. It took him a long time to learn it (Canadian Railroad Trilogy), but by the time he had it down we were both Lightfoot fans. I've been listening to your wonderful music ever since. Thanks for all the great love s ngs, especially the early UA recordings with their fantastic musicality (Pussy Willows Cat-Tails, Affair on 8th Avenue) and for all the later songs (Carefree Highway, Shadows, Too Late For Prayin'). I have so many of your finely crafted songs in my memor and after almost 30 years of listening, hearing them again prompts all the other memories of what I was doing, and feeling, when I first heard them so long ago. Your music really has been the soundtrack for my life. Thanks for all the music you've give to all of us and have a great birthday.

My roommate at Appalachian State in Boone, NC had a Gordon Lightfoot 33Lpm. I found out that all of the stuff was good. Next thing I know I'm a diehard. That was in '73. I now look for everything I can find from Gord. He tells stories in song like Gary La son does in cartoons(everyday situations that we can all relate to but are usually to preoccupied to contemplate. I'm a screenprinter. I would like to print a Lightfoot shirt. I would donate the profits to which ever cause Gordon would like. Could someone please relay this message to him. I'm serious. I cover my costs and that is all. Happy Birthday for the many hours, days, months, etc. of pleasure and identification. Chuck

Gord, Thanks for all that you and your music mean to our family. I learned to play guitar with your albums, and still write songs in your fashion to this day. My wife and I fell in love the night we attended your concert at the old Stanley Theatre in Pittsbu gh (August 1980), and we've remained big fans (of you AND each other!) ever since. Your songs have comforted our kids as I sing to them at bedtime. You touched us all by playing "The Pony Man" at our 8-year old daughter's request this summer in Philade phia, and by signing an autograph for her after the show. Best wishes with much love on your 60th birthday. The Taylor Family Rob, Tina, Bethany, Nicholas and Sarah

We brought our 10 year old twins, Sarah and Jessie to the Tennessee Theater at Knoxville to see you this year. There weren't many children there, and they amazed th folks around us by singing along with you knowing all the words to the songs. Your music has been a treasure that I have been proud to share with my family. Happy Birthday Mr. Lightfoot, may you have many more.

“Hey You” “Bossman”, “I’m Not Sayin’” “I’m Not Supposed To Care” but “If I Could” follow “Protocol” “May I” wish you “Something Very Special” for your 60th year on the “Summer Side of Life.” “It’s Worth Believing” that you’re far from an “Ordinary Man.” “The List” of your s ngs is “Beautiful” and “Fine as Fine Could Be.” Hey, “The Way I Feel” “If You Got It” – “I’d Do It Again” too – but “Softly.” “Stay Loose.” Have a “Lazy Mornin’”, a “Second Cup of Coffee”, and enjoy the “Changes.” “If You Could Read My Mind” you’d know I’d be “Waiting For You” should you “Go My Way” on your next tour. Happy Birthday and don’t stop singing anytime soon!

A former lady-friend and I went to Wolf Trap. She wasn't "in" to your stuff, and she said that "all your songs were like a lullaby." I don't think she really understood, (or will ever, for that matter), just how high a compliment that is. I certainly couldn't ever have come up with a better description or greater praise of your work. (The strangest things from the strangest sources.) Since I've never heard this before in reference to your work, I thought I'd pass it along. Happy Birthday, Judson Main

The first Gordon Lightfoot song I ever heard was "Approaching Lavender" from the LP "Sit Down Young Stranger" [retitled "If You Could Read My Mind" after that song became his first hit as a performer on the top 40 charts]. I was 14 years old at the time. t was his music that inspired me to switch from playing electric guitar to playing acoustic 12-string. Thanks, Mr. Lightfoot for almost 30 years of listening pleasure.

Love your stuff, Gord! I've been listening to your stuff ever since I was a kid, since my mom's been a huge fan since she was a teen. She also signed this card. Her name's Debra Poore. I once got in trouble for singing the first verse of Carefree Highway, not knowing what that word meant! Oh, well. I'm glad that you've been going strong longer than most bands. Keep singing as long as you're happy!!!

Trying to pick out one favorite GL song above was one of the hardest things I have ever done. So many of the songs mean so much to me, but this song seems to perfectly describe the relationship I have with my husband/best friend of 17 years that it is ou favorite. It is also the song that convinced my husband that Gordon Lightfoot is the best musical artist/poet that we have ever heard. I just wish that we in America had the opportunities that the lucky Canadians have to see more of him on TV and that could tell him how much his music means to me. Happy Birthday Gord!

Well, Gord, what can I say? I've been trying for the past few weeks to come up with something really special for your 60th, but the two words that sum up the way I feel are amazingly simple: Thank you. From "Rich Man's Spiritual" to "Uncle Toad Said" ( nd all that wonderful stuff in between), you've been the major contributor to the soundtrack of my life. In addition to your abundant melodic gifts, it's been the uncanny way you have of understanding the joyous, heartbreaking, mysterious and very messy rocess of living, of what it means to be human, that has helped me get through the hard times and appreciate the good times. You've always spoken to us straight from the heart; wise without being pretentious and with a zero tolerance for bullshit. Your ongs are timeless. So stay loose, Gord.....and Happy Birthday!

It is great to have music created by someone from up here in the north who sings about Loons, cold water, snow and of course mosquitoes! It is just too bad that no radio stations in the Minneapolis area play any of Gord's tunes from this decade! HAPPY 60th Mr. Lightfoot. You still make music that appeals to younger people! (oh shit, my 40th is coming up in Dec.) Now that we have your attention, there is one thing you could do for us. If you have a way of persuading the release of your other 4 albums onto CD I am sure you have some interested parties. Thanks for the music over the years, we will still keep coming to see you in concert as long as you feel like doing it!

Comments:
Gordon, I attended your concerts in Billings Mt. with my friends, then my family. My children grew up listening to you and have learned to love your music too. Both concerts we visited you after ward and my baby (20 years old) summed it up when he said e learned your songs by osmosis in womb. Your music has always set a mood in our house and having my children attend your concert with me will always be one of my greatest memories. Have a great Birthday and keep that music rolling. From one scorpio to another - God Bless

Happy Birthday, Gordon. I saw you the last time you were in St. Louis at the Fox and you said you would be through here again. We are still wating and will wait as long as it takes. I was so happy about your new album. It's vintage already as far as I m concerned. The Sunday Afternoon Concert album needs to be re-released on CD. See what can be done about that one. It was a spectacular album. My son is 12 and he loves "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald." One of the happiest moments of my life was when that song went to number one. There have been dozens of your songs that should have been number one, but most radio stations are too stupid to play your music. Happy 60th birthday. It doesn't seem possible, but in 15 or 20 more years, you're going to be approaching old age. Just keep writing, singing, and playing. I'll do my part and keep listening.

Gordon Lightfoot taught me to play the guitar, realize that life is a shared experience, and gave me my Canadian wife. Singing Lightfoot's ballads to that lovely woman enabled me, in part, to woo her away from the guy to whom she was engaged. I am the b tter man for being graced by her presence for the last 27 years. Thank you, Gord.

Gordon - it would take someone like you to adequately write how I feel about your music. Your music has been a part of my life since my brother-in-law turned me on to "Lightfoot!" back in the mid-sixties. I've been hooked ever since. From Steel Rail Blu s to Romance to Waiting For You, I've really enjoyed all of them, and it's difficult to pick the best. Thanks for a lifetime of service to people like me who truly appreciate your talent. Happy Birthday and may God bless you in all things. Bob Klaiss

Happy 60th Birthday, Gordon! I hope you have 60 more! I enjoyed very much "A Painter Passing Through" and the variety of songs on it. I especially love "A Painter Passing Through" (song). One thing about your music, whatever mood I'm in, there's alway some favorite to match my mood
