Father's Day jam the fourth and final is a bit different. This here is a song that I learned of from my father rather than the other way around. Dad had an affection for Gordon Lightfoot, who I'm still not at all fond of, but in my younger days I thought those Gord's Gold CDs were THE WORST.
But this song was Dad's favorite from them, and I heard it plenty of times. It's just somber and downbeat enough to be bearable, and after repeat exposure I almost actually like it. Forced, on-the-nose lyrics aside.
I first heard this many moons ago but only after hearing a new epic version by Arbouretum recently did I go back and listen to the scarcely less epic original about a doomed freighter that sank In Lake Superior in 1975. Accompanied by one hell of a scary video.
