Default John Denver

haha, I feel like a dork for loving his one song: Take me Home Country Roads... anyone ever heard or love it too? There is a cover of it made by Olivia Newton John.

Besides that he WAS the first to introduce Leaving on a jet plane which rocks!!

I don't think it's dorky at all. John Denver was a great songwriter, and a couple of my favorites by him are: Annie's Song, Rocky Mountain High, Take Me Home Country Roads, Leaving on a Jet Plane, and Back Home Again.

As a 9-year-old I made myself mix tapes of the 6 or so JD albums my dad owned. I REALLY liked "Annie's Song," I guess, because I put that one multiple times on there, interspersed between like every four or five other songs.

...I should ask, does anyone know if he did anything respectable in his later career? I remember that "Don't Close Your Eyes" tonight song coming out, which was kind of a nice song, but also very creepy picturing JD having sex. Ug.

Listing to John Denver's Take Me Home Country Road while driving home to visit my Parent in Philadelphia PA from Kentucky is just the best...

Ahh...John Denver. I first heard his songs when they were new, back when I was a tiny tot. I think a babysitter used to sing me "Country Roads" and I would imagine the country road stretching out before me. "Annie's Song" is one of the most beautiful love songs I know of. I always think how sad it is that even a brilliant, poetic song like that...and the feelings that went behind it...weren't enough to keep John Denver and Annie, his first spouse, together. At least they rekindled friendship shortly before his plane accident death...which, sadly, was far from being "dying in her arms." I'm glad he at least had a chance to experience the feelings that inpired him to write "Annie's Song," even if the relationship didn't last.
