Music Monday – Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald

I have been obsessed with this song by Gordon Lightfoot (thinking of changing my name to Matt Heavyfoot) for about a week now. I think one of the reasons for my obsession is that it tells such a good story. It’s about this giant freighter ship, The Edmund Fitzgerald, that went down during a big storm on Lake Superior. During the storm all 29 crew members were lost along with the ship. Gordon Lightfoot does an amazing ob telling the story. Check out the video and song and see if it does anything for you.
