The Top Ten

1 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...

Only song of him that I have ever heard and loved. - Singer4Freedom

And he tried to touch the sun
And he lost his hand
But kept the memory"
