My buddy DTW recently posted a YouTube clip of John Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane" over on Facebook. This got me thinking back to my childhood and the John Denver songs I remembered and loved. We had all heard the classics like "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" and "Take Me Home, Country Roads" but for me, Denver's discography was limited to one single album: Windsong. Released in 1975 when I was a wee tot of two and listened to it on and off until I left for university in the early 1990s. Below is my favourite song from that album, the title track. Man oh man, he had a wonderful voice.
