My family sang this song to our mom when we took her off life support. It was one of her favorites. She passed away as we finished singing. This song will always remind me of that painful yet beautiful moment.
Angelo Cella:
I just love this song, it's so beautiful!
He was my favorite when I was young. Used to sit and listen to his entire Rocky Mountain High album. I just don't see how you can make better music than this.
Dapper McStàche:
Hmmmm.. must be doing too much sig fig homework... keep hearing, :Rocky Mountain High, Avagadro"...
Grace Robinson:
I hate his song Leaving on a jet plane because he really did.😞
Herman Duke:
Over the years occasionally I listen to this song and 'it keeps on sounding better all the time".......and. And its a great song. When that happens.............
Jason Snyder:
John Denver was a gift to the world, his music always makes me think of home. I will never stop listening. RIP John Denver
Jerry Carney:
just a guy and his guitar, overlooked him back in the day. But as ya get older you remember simpler times
john shows up.
Luke N:
J. Denver with his Vocals N bright twinkling musical sound seems to have an underlying sense of disqueting pale sad expressiveness that reveals some kind of a scar......., however i like this tune....
Salohcin Yesmar:
John Denver. Your music is so true and sincere I cry with tears of joy when I hear it. Thank you for leaving us with your gospel of love and respect for nature.
Smitty smith:

albium card:
this song pulled me trough a dark time cried me out till I could cry no more and that's when I was able to move on.

Unfortunately, as long as Max "The Swede" Martin dominates the American pop scene with an iron glove (the guy nobody knows about who writes very formulaic, digitally brutalized pop songs that become hits for EVERY pop singer born of his original "Britney" mold, from 1997 to now) we will never see truly brilliant, unique, creative artists like Denver again. Martin's business model consists of writing songs by HIS committee (the singer is just a brand image), and he writes and produces every single pop hit (as he has done for the past twenty years) while various singers pretend its truly and really their own music. The Martin model destroyed the last bit of true musical creativity that was left in rock/pop music in the mid-to-late 90s (in terms of any mainstream success). Martin "The Swede" has written/writes virtually every hit for Swift (the entire 1989 album), Perry, Rihanna, (a few for) Minaj, everything for Spears, Kelly Clarkson, also some for Adele, Christina, Pink, *NSYNC, the Backstreet Boys, Ricky Martin, Timberlake, and random slop like "Can't feel my face." And of course there are Martin's Swedish trained minions like Dr. Luke, who infamously worked with Ke$ha. Of course since the Max Martin earthquake happened creative artists with great talent like a John Denver can't get ANY support from record companies, gifted session musicians no longer exist (which also means that guys like a Jimmy Page no longer can develop their skills early by playing with other exceptionally talented musicians in professional session work), musicianship no longer matters since autotune disguises hideously untrained and ugly "singing" and destroys the unique tone quality of individual voices and digital fuckery disguises weak skills and "live" shows are totally canned -- after all, the brand image, not talent, is all that matters. In my field of creative writing it would be like one guy writing every new novel for twenty years by utilizing a computer program that repeats the same tropes predictably while the supposed "authors" are chosen from central casting and wear glasses and scarves and appropriate "I am a serious novelist" clothing for brief interviews on talk shows. The publishing companies suppress production so that options for the general public are limited to these "novels" and they happily continue the lie as long as the "novels" sell, and they drop/disregard any budding novelists with potential because they are independent and aren't a proven market force. It is seriously as creepy as fuck. Since every pop song now follows the exact, very repetitive Max Martin structure no matter who is singing it, only a very few lucky talented folks can still get noticed (and YouTube has been helpful this way). Listening to Denver's music fills me with such awe at his talent but also makes me sad as modern music production doesn't allow for this kind of creativity to develop.
that john denver is full of shit
john calvert:
this music reminds me of sugar island, mi

He was born in the summer of his 27th year, coming home to a place he'd never been before.
He left yesterday behind him,you might say he was born again,
you might say he found a key for every door.
When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away on the road and hanging by a song.
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care,
it keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long.

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby.
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado. Rocky Mountain high.
