Watch as Gordon Lightfoot performs “Salute (A Lot More Livin’ To Do)” and “Early Morning Rain” on Alan Thicke’s short-lived late-night talk show “Thicke of the Night”.
On the show, Gord and Alan sing together on “Early Morning Rain” and they sound really good as a duo.
A Few Words from the Directors ‘Broken Fingaz Crew’:
“The video addresses the current political situation: 2017 for us was the year fascists worldwide felt confident enough to raise their heads again, encouraged by Trump and other world leaders, who use people’s fear to build more walls and segregation. The song is both a personal letter and a clarion cry to the global situation, and in the same way, we’ve combined our psychedelic pop style with political imagery; shot entirely analogue, using paper cut and stop motion animation techniques”.
The Smashing Pumpkins’ soundcheck for their performance on Saturday Night Live on October 30, 1993, the music can be heard starting at approx 6:40.
This was when they were in their prime, Billy and the rest of the group just kill it on “Cherub Rock” and “Today”.
