There is something about it that sounds like an old rollicking sailors song. It hit me on a visceral level that I have trouble articulating. I also really like the song you posted and it is very familiar to me.
    Yes he was a very good man. He did everything for his family. A lot of the words really resonate with me and I wasn't there on the morning he died and it was a shock that he was gone. Anyway people should not take for granted the people they love because there will be a time when they aren't here.

    Gordon Lightfoot's song is amazing. It is a beautiful homage to the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald. He's immortalised them with this powerful ballad and it does have the feel of some seafaring legend from a bygone era. He has a great way with words. Those Great Lakes are very treacherous. The Edmund Fitzgerald is the largest ship to have sunk there.

    The Morrigan (also Mórrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses Ériu, Banba and Fódla.

    About Derry. It is the best song about "The Troubles".
