The Music of Our Youth

May 13, 2008 - By

This past weekend I had a chance to see Gordon Lightfoot at Massey Hall in Toronto. No one would ever call me a huge Gordon Lightfoot fan, it was something my parents used to listen to. When you’re a kid I think it’s only natural to think your parents have a skewed taste in music (and maybe a few other things)! Now that I’m older I’m glad I’ve taken time to revisit some of the music that I grew up listening to. While Gordie looks nothing like I imagined him (based on album covers that are older than me), he still had that unmistakable voice, though noticeably aged. It made me kinda nostalgic for my youth and an era that I didn’t even live in. It’s also amazing how much of that music I know so well, even if I haven’t heard it in over a decade. The Music of Our Youth would make a wicked mixtape theme…
