Much love and respect for DL.  Gifted musician, esteemed collaborator, brilliant producer.  Nice song from a heartfelt album.

How opinions can differ... For me, this is one of the best songs on this truly wonderful album... I actually love to sing & play it myself...

He has at least 4 albums that I know of, the last one being instrumental. This one (Acadie) is easily his best. Very eerie, moody production as is typical for him. This song is one of the weakest on the album, so don't write it off based on this one song.

And Hull, Quebec, is now part of Gatineau, which is mentioned in the song and where I am writing from right now.

Huh? By "the real thing" do you mean the artist must have been born in southern Louisiana in order to make "authentic" southern Louisiana/cajun/Acadian music? Sure, there are plenty of great artists making great stuff in this style that would be great to hear on RP. Request and upload your heart out. But why declare that "authenticity" is based on geographic origin? I'll take great talent like Lanois' any day, no matter where he was born or grew up. BTW, Lanois is French-Canadian, and lives in New Orleans - does that qualify him enough to be the "real thing?" :rolleyes:

I discovered the song in the same way although haven't heard much else of his. Like the lyrics, seem very sincere somehow. Maybe I should by the Album.

A Wonderful song and a fantastic album. Lanois' lyrics are well put together and play well to those who grew up in environment were both French and English were heard on a daily basis.

Did you know, Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton is in fact also rather sarcastic, while its known to be one of the most romantic songs ever?! :p

song's way over but i had to come back to say more Daniel! Acadie is one of my all time faves with many repeat listens over the last 14 years. so many cool albums with his stamp on em too: Emmylou, Bob, Willie, Luscious Jackson, Peter Gabriel, Robbie R. and that Irish band.
