Tom Waits easily. Gordon is yawn inducing.

Re: Tom Waits vs Gordon Lightfoot

Surprisingly difficult. Lightfoot has the best few songs, but Waits has the better albums and the more unique voice. Went with him in the end.

Re: Tom Waits vs Gordon Lightfoot

Definitely Tom Waits. Better songwriter, more musically adventurous/interesting and a terrific entertainer. I was lucky enough to have seen him live a few years back and it was one of my all time favorite shows.

Lightfoot has some good tunes, but he isn't even close to Tom.

I have tried to "digest" Tom's songs, but they just do not get under my skin:):):)

Re: Tom Waits vs Gordon Lightfoot

Gordon Lightfoot for me. I love all of his songs. Especially "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald"There is a cool video of Edmund Fitzgerald on youtube that shows the wreck as it lays now with the Gordon Lightfoot song playing along with slides and film footage.
