Best John Denver Songs


The Top Ten

1 Take Me Home, Country Roads Take Me Home, Country Roads

I just love this song, it's an all time classic. I remember hearing it as a young child and it's amazing that so many people still listen to it to this day. It not only connects to the older generation but the young generation as well.

Best JD song, and one of the best country songs too...

2 Annie's Song Annie's Song

You fill up my senses like a night In a forest, like mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain, like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean. Come let me love you, Come love me again. These lyrics are beautiful, heartfelt, and poetic. Absolutely Pure Genius! #1 and it belongs here! We love you John Denver! R.I.P.

This will always be my favorite. Best song by the best singer. - Beatlesboy9
