Best John Denver Songs

The Top Ten
1 Take Me Home, Country Roads Take Me Home, Country Roads Cover Art

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.

Even people who don't like country music love this song. It is an all time classic, and if you've never listened to it, what are you waiting for?

Since Bethesda put this song into the Fallout 76 trailer, this song gained the recognition it deserves!

I love this song,I have been hearing this song since 5 till now. it has already been 5 years since I started listening to the song. I am from the tiny island of singapore.

This song has always meant something to me.. Something special. It's like I can understand what he's saying in the song. It always has a special place in my heart

I really love this. It doesn't need to be the first one on this list to be the best - it just is. The lyrics are very emotive and moving.

"They say that he went crazy once
And he tried to touch the sun
And he lost his hand
But kept the memory"

I love this song, likely one of the main things that compelled me to move to Colorado for a while, once upon a time
