    I have nothing to add except this...

    ELAINE: Andrea Doria? Isn't that the one they did the song about?

    JERRY: (Correcting her) Edmund Fitzgerald.

    ELIANE: I love Edmund Fitzgerald's voice.

    JERRY: (Gives Elaine a look) No, Gordon Lightfoot was the singer. Edmund Fitzgerald was the ship.

    GEORGE: (Talking about his would-be apartment) You could fit 15 people in that bathroom..

    ELAINE: I think Gordon Lightfoot was the boat.

    JERRY: (Sarcastic) Yeah, and it was rammed by the Cat Stevens.

    Just one question -- Was there a guy by the name of Jack Dawson being chased around on that ship by the hired servant of a rich guy whose fiance he was banging in the back of a Model T Ford?

    Lightfoot turns 71 in six days.

  5. Kramer: It was all in my book "Astonishing Tales of the Sea."

    He sings every Christmas Eve at HC's church. I've only seen him once but it's very, very cool.

    You can never have too many threads on this, can you?

    I claim full responsibility for that DB.
    But I never get sick of hearing that song although in my opinion, Lightfoot's greatest song was The Canadian Railway Trilogy. First or second album
