    Thank God I'm A Country Boy - John Denver (1974)



    Timeless, fun, and very much John Denver...written by John Martin Sommers.
    I have a soft spot for old JD, used to watch his show when I was a kid. Very tragic loss when he died so young in that plane crash. RIP John, you were a good soul.

    Take Me Home, Country Roads
    Artist: John Denver
    Album: Poems, Prayers & Promises
    Released: 1971

      JD always had an appealing sound. I am off track a little, but I instantly recall Annie's Song as one of his classics. Beautiful song.

      Here's another one of my all time favs...more to the tail end of their fabulous run! Chuck Negron was not involved at this point, but the 3 "dogs" had an amazing amount of talent including wonderful harmonization!

          Try A Little Tenderness - Otis Redding (1966)

          But wait...this song was first recorded by The Ray Noble Orchestra in 1932. The legendary Otis Redding gave it a whole new flavour in 1966, which gave others the appreciation to follow that styling, including Three Dog Night in 1969.

          So I will play their version, given it too is one of my all time favs. Plus it is so coincidental given I just posted Three Dog Night, then watched Cory Wells sing Try A Little Tenderness, followed by 2MW's song, that includes the work Little. Perfect!!

            "With a Little Help from My Friends" (originally titled "A Little Help from My Friends") is a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, released on The Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967. The song was written for and sung by Beatles drummer Ringo Starr as the character "Billy Shears."

            Lennon and McCartney finished writing this song in mid-March 1967, written as Starr's song for the album. It was briefly called Bad Finger Boogie (later the inspiration for the band name Badfinger), because Lennon composed the melody on a piano using his middle finger after having hurt his forefinger; but in his 1980 Playboy interview Lennon said: "This is Paul, with a little help from me. 'What do you see when you turn out the light/ I can't tell you, but I know it's mine...' is mine."

                  I still consider this to be one of best songs about love of all time.
