Song of the day: Gordon Lightfoot- The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald
In 1976, Gordon Lightfoot released his song “the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”. He wrote this song after reading an article in Newsweek about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in 1975. At first he was afraid of inaccuracies, but his producer told him to tell a story and not worry about the details. This gave some mistakes, but that didn’t matter: in Canada, the song became a number 1 hit and in the US (billboard) number 2. Enjoy
