Have you ever tried to enjoy listening to Country Music? In fact, in this respect, John Denver stands out to be one of the best singers. To learn why I enjoy his songs till today, read on.
The fact that he could never be happy staying with his wife, yet he sang his songs with his wife in mind in a far away place from his home, struck me a lot. He really had a special calling for singing country songs and yet his tragic death in a plane crash is even more saddening.
My favorite songs of John Denver are “Annie’s Song” and “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” But there is also a special song he sang, whose repeating lyrics speak a lot to me. I will reveal more about it towards the end of this article.
Playing country music, especially like those of John Denver’s songs, before having an afternoon nap or before going to sleep at night can actually relax your mind to a great extent, letting you have a deep and uninterrupted sleep, about which you will really feel great after waking up and go about the rest of the day with renewed energy and vigor.
Playing his songs when your mood is low and need a kind of boost is just about the perfect solution. Singing the lyrics of the songs, when you are playing them, actually helps you go bouncing to great heights during the day. Even if you don’t have the spirit to play them, just start to sing your favorite lines of his songs and you will feel blessed. If you have never heard of John Denver’s songs, I would recommend you to buy his CD of songs and start listening right away. It is actually the melody of his songs that touches your heart and soothes your mind and above all, the lyrics are lovely too. Start tapping the palm of your hand or better still with your foot along with the beats of the songs, and you will definitely and remarkably start feeling the mojo of your life. A little movement of your body goes a long way for your good only.
You can also play these songs while you are driving alone or with your family. Everybody will tune into the melody of these songs and start enjoying the ride even more and above all, feel good and spirited. If you are playing them while you are returning home from a night’s out get-together or elsewhere with your children, I bet your children will fall into good and heavy sleep, and you don’t have to bother about putting them to sleep when you reach home by telling them bedtime stories. Yes, country music deserves that many credits.
Now I let a deep, ingrained cat out of the bag, as I promised. I said earlier that one of John Denver’s songs really spoke to me. It is “Seasons of the Heart” and the repeating lyrics inside it which I mention below kind of reflect my life in a context different from John’s; yet they have a bewitching effect on me. Here they go:
“That is why I came here in the first place;
Love is now the reason I must go;
Love is all I ever hoped to find here;
Love is still the only dream I know.”
