Caution: Graphic content.
Graphs are fun. Especially when you stumble across a website that make creating them very easy.
Today we will graph out a brief section of the popular Gordon Lightfoot song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
If you’re not familiar with this song, I welcome you to our planet, for obviously you are a recent arrival here. I think you’ll find us earthlings friendly and welcoming, if not a little strange. This blog post is a testament to that.
Here is a video of the song for those of you not familiar with it. This video will help you with the complex math that follows.
Okay, let’s get started, shall we? You’re familiar with the old expression:

Okay, it may not be that old an expression. In fact, I may have just made that up. So if you ever use that, please make sure to give me proper attribution. And I would not say no to a Whataburger hot apple pie.
Okay, let’s roll up our sleeves and start graphing.
And there you have it. I don’t think these need any additional explanation, so I won’t provide one. That is the beauty of graphs. Lots of information with no words required. Although, I may be negating the word-economy of graphs with all this jabbering I’m doing.
Tune in to our next episode of Professor Biff’s “Fun With Graphs” where we will attempt to graph the hit Chicago song, “25 or 6 to 4”.
