365 Days of Songs (1993)

Gordon Lightfoot, “Wild Strawberries”


1/27/20231 min read

Another great late-career song—and I realize Gord is still with us, and the “late career” I’m talking about here is 30 years ago, but he’s only released three records since, and the most recent one (released in 2020) is made of songs he demoed 20 years ago.

This is a sweet, charming little tune with a touch of unexpected humor. I could quibble with the synth-heavy 90s production, but I like the song too much to do that.
