Re: “Jimmy Webb's songs and stories at Elon University

Truly the songs are indelible, due not just for the imagery, but the melodies as well. One can't forget the sound of Jimmy's Hammond telegraphing the mental picture of a beautiful woman "in the wires" of Lineman; or, the poignant journey from Phoenix to Oklahoma. Unquestionably Jimmy Webb is a songwriting Titan deserving of his place on music's Olympus.

But, to quote Yoda, "There is another."

Let us not forget Gordon Lightfoot. While the melodies might not be as instantly recognizable on their own as Mr. Webb's, Lightfoot's lyrics are equally impressive when it comes to firing the mind's images.

That's the nice thing about Olympus; there's room enough for the pantheon.
