- Today's songs begin with R
- And more lyric snippets!
This was one of the many Motown songs written by Holland/Dozier/Holland. I have this track on an old-fashioned vinyl LP and, what's more, it's in mono!
'...if you feel that you can't go on
Because all of your hope is gone
And your life is filled with much confusion
Until happiness is just an ilusion...'
'...Reach out for me
I'll be there...'
A real friend is always there for you.
John Denver was passionate about Colorado and the wide open spaces that he made his home.
Seeking grace in every step he takes...'
'...his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend.
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land.
Colorado Rocky Mountain high...'
John Denver was concerned that the Colorado Mountains were being spoilt by the increase in tourism. In the UK the same concerns have been expressed about the Lake District.
Should we be allowed to walk wherever we please in our own countryside or should access be restricted to preserve areas of beauty?
I know there are lots of R songs that I could have included. Any favourites?
