I love this song, and I kind of think of Dale and Flynn when I hear it now.   Flynn, Paul, Jasper, Riley and the ranch as a whole has brought Dale's senses alive.   John Denver's Annie's Song.

For some reason, I can't see any of the links; I'm re-installing Flash. In the meantime, one of my favorites.

The video itself is a little sad, but I always have Jasper in my head when I hear this and it soothes me.

Calypso is one of my favorite of John Denver's songs - and I had to listen to it twice.  Another favorite of his is Annie's Song.  I hope it's an appropriate share in this thread.  I haven't listened to all songs yet, so if someone has already shared, I'll pull this. 

Link pulled - I see Dizzy has shared this.


I enjoyed all these  very much.  Thanks everyone.

Dee

I can't visit this forum as much as I'd like, so I don't know whether anyone has ever posted this. But my apprentice Jo/e and I wanted to share a song that was written in the summer of 1969, and which seems as appropriate now as it did then.

Some context for those of you who weren't around back then (which includes me, in a certain sense; I was an oblivious six-year-old). As the author of the notes to this song's album put it, "The starry-eyed optimism that had taken hold of America's young during the mid-Sixties didn't just die in 1969 - it was ripped to shreds." In 1969, the murderers of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy were on trial. Americans feared further race riots. The Vietnam War was in full swing, and young American men waited to see whether they would be drafted. Across the country, university campuses were torn apart by protests which sometimes turned violent.

In 1969, the Midwestern university where my father taught underwent student and faculty protests. One of the results of the divisiveness was that my father eventually resigned his position and moved his family halfway across the country to take a new job. (That's why I now live in Maryland.)

In 1969, Jo/e's father was serving in Vietnam.

I often listened to this song at home in the 1970s, when I was a troubled adolescent; my parents owned the album. My parents and Jo/e's parents would have first heard this song around the time its album was released, in January 1970.

Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

Dusk,
This is a song I remember from my childhood. My mother still has the album and recently played it (now that they've reinvested in an record player). I was only 10 then, but I loved listening to the song.

And this reminder of the meaning, at this time, is a perfect addition to the song list.
