Finally Five on Friday Set 97

Posted: Friday, December 02, 2011 by Travis Cody in

Sorry gang!  Blogger had some kind of issue last night and into this morning.  This is the first chance I've had to get my Set organized.

I've been feeling mellow all week, but it wasn't until Thursday afternoon that I heard the song that brought me to the perfect Set to match my mood.  So without further stuff and nonsense, here is Set 97.

I'm Sorry, written by John Denver, #1 hit released in 1975

Fly Away, written by John Denver, #1 hit released in 1975

Rocky Mountain High, written by John Denver/Mike Taylor, released in 1972

Sunshine On My Shoulders, written by John Denver/Dick Kniss/Mike Taylor, #1 hit released in 1973

Annie's Song, written by John Denver, #1 hit released in 1974

    I was wondering if you had some technical difficulties. I decided to go forward anyways. And the tones of John Denver are very soothing after a stressful week. :)

  1. Too bad about the blogger issues, Travis - how frustrating!

    Loved your set, now that it's up - especially I'm Sorry.

    Now everyone will hate me for saying this, but John Denver is not my favorite. Although I enjoyed the Mountain High song ;)
    Have a great weekend, Trav!

    One of the best evenings of my life was spent with a crowd of union people from West Virginia who were in Santa Monica for negotiations. I referred them to my favorite watering hole and it ended with repeated sing alongs of "Country Roads". John Denver always makes me smile.

  1. Jamie says:

    Oh and my favorite Denver song is Calypso for Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Talk about ahead of your time on environmental issues.

  1. Rocky Mountain High and Sunshine on my shoulder are great tunes.

    While I can admire John Denver's talent I've never been a big fan of his music.

  1. For me, John Denver has always been this enigma. I get how so many people enjoy his music and really, his 'state of mind'. Denver fans are like fans of Jimmy Buffet and the Grateful Dead and Phish. They live the life, or try to or imagine being able to do so.
    He is not represented (except maybe one or two songs) in my collection.

  1. Thanks for the JD tunes. Always did like him.
