GUEST,Katy Favourite John Denver songs (52* d) Favourite John Denver songs 14 Nov 12


I was a huge John Denver fan as were so many people all over the world!
JD recorded so many great songs during his career.

I am curious what songs are some of your favourites? Of course there are all the many, many well known songs that everyone knows - but also many songs that may not have been big hits or as well known to the masses. So take a few minutes to think about all the great songs you remember - and what song/songs are your favourites.

I do love all the well known hits John Denver had of course but - at the top of my list are two songs that I especially love. They are:

1. "Rhyme and Reasons" This song above all others (and my very, very favourite) brings me to tears. It is so sad - but so,so beautiful!

2. "This Old Guitar"

These two songs are my all time favourites.

I miss John Denver so much..he died way before his time in in Monterey Bay in Northern, California on October 12, 1997.

I remember exactly when I heard the news. I was working at a large
California Record Company and went on my 15 minute afternoon break in the break room. There was a TV on in that room - no one else in there at the time I went in (for my break.) The afternoon TV news was on and then I heard what is called here "Breaking News."
"Singer/songwriter, John Denver was killed today in Monterey, California in an experimental plane crash into the Pacific Ocean. Details still coming in."
I was devasted and could hardly make it out of that room. I was so sad, so upset and just couldn't believe it.
