Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot released his tune “Sundown” in March of 1974 and it went to the very top of the charts both here in the US and in Canada.
The song comes from the L.P. of the same name which also climbed to #1. Here’s Lightfoot performing live on The Midnight Special in 1974. Time to pour a glass of strawberry wine, kick back, keep it mellow…and ponder infidelity. Oh, man. Bummer.
