Listen to SUNDOWN by Gordon Lightfoot.

Since I can remember I've been wanting to post Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot but for the life of me I can't remember why!

In jukebox classics terms, there's nothing to say about this song. Sundown, duh, jukebox classic. I think this is a tune that I actually used to play at Muldoon's with my former colleagues, but even that I'm not sure about.

The one thing I really love about the arrangement on this song is how on most all of the refrains, "Sundown, you better take care...," they've got Gord doubled and backed, but for the initial statement of the refrain, it's just him by himself. Something very cool about that.

Not to mention Gordo's murderous rage...
