Rocky Mountain High – John Denver
“Rocky Mountain High” is a folk rock song written by John Denver and Mike Taylor about Colorado, and is one of the two official state songs of Colorado. Recorded by Denver in 1972, it went to #9 on the US Hot 100 in 1973. (The song also made #3 on the Easy Listening chart, and was played by some country music stations.) Denver told concert audiences in the mid-1970s that the song took him an unusually long nine months to write. What did you think of this song from John Denver?

Loved John Denver when he played in Vancouver before he was famous. This video is just like where I was born and raised in the BC Rockies and live today on a Ski Hill called Big White for the past 20 + years.
