DORANNA DURGIN reminded me of a singer who had been in the back of my mind while I indulged in sharing music I love. Most of these songs tell a story and when you follow a specific singer that story expands. What is a great song but setting a good story to wonderful music?
John Denver has been a particular favorite for a long, partially (or mostly) because he wasn’t afraid to expose himself to the world for his music. Such as his song to his wife. Here is a male who understood romance!
Singing about the life of a touring musician who has to leave the one he loves:
And his love affair with Colorado:
Yet a love song to West Virginia
All of these and more exposed John Denver as a complex man with strong convictions. Doesn’t listening to all these songs, one after another, just tickle your plotting nerves? Sure does mine.
We have a snowy week ahead of us. Moisture in any form is so welcome.
