The 1951 Rolling Review Show … Midweek Melody # 75
Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.
If You Could Read My Mind …. Gordon Lightfoot
“If You Could Read My Mind” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot. Released in December 1970, it reached number one on Canadian music charts and was his first recording to appear on the American music charts, reaching number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in February 1971. Later in the year it reached number 30 in the UK. The song also reached number one for one week on the Billboard Easy Listening chart, and was the first of four Lightfoot releases to reach number one.
