one of the comments on my last post from kingofnewyorkhacks mentioned a song by john denver ‘on the road’. i’m sure i was much closer to his mother’s age than his when she was vacuuming and listening to john denver. his posts are so descriptive it is like taking a vacation. so i took a short webvaca in search of john denver. i couldn’t exactly get my mind around that song so i went on an internet frenzy trying to find it… google, amazon, 4 or 5 lyric sites and finally pandora.com. although it says it was released on 6 different albums [that’s what we used to call them] i can’t find it anywhere. so i created a john denver station on pandora to see if maybe it will magically come up there while i am typing this.
the night john denver was writing ‘rocky mountain high’ i was looking at the same meteor shower he was only from the mountains of central utah. i actually owned most of those albums i was looking at on the web. i love john denver, i just forgot how much.
i could have literally spent hundreds of dollars just now buying cds or downloading mp3s. i didn’t listen to any of the previews because i knew what would happen. the 70’s were a wonderful time in my life, but i also experienced some losses and you know how music reminds you of things ~ well happy or sad i tend to boob when i reminisce [my dad used to say my bladder was behind my eyeballs]. check out my post “you do the math” and you will get a pretty good idea of what i mean.
pandora just gave me john denver, simon and garfunkle, james taylor, jim croche, and john denver again… i had to turn it off ~ maybe i’ll try again on the weekend when i can have a glass of wine and just step back about 35 years or so. i hope my ’68 mustang will be waiting for me, but i’m leaving my fat ass and grey hair here!
one thing i do wish is that i would have thought to push my little truck a mile when it turned over to 100000! i hope someone will do that for me whenever i finally get there! [HA!] oh, and don’t hold your breath.
