    One of the lamest songs I've ever heard. Awful story telling.

    Was there when the had there memorial at zug island,They were actually going there not Cleveland,There was family members on tugs dressed in black as I remember.Was very surreal,They gave us a bucket of pellets that was retrieved from the cargo that was on the bottom of the lake,In return we gave them a plaque.Being a steel worker these boat were a common sight,And touched home.God Bless there souls.Beautiful song!!

    This song brought back the honor of those on the Edmund Fitzgerald. For that, we thank you.

    Interesting to read comments from people whose lives were directly affected by this. And if you weren’t listening to top 40 in the mid-70s yes this was a top 40 hit somewhere in between disco duck and fly Robin fly
