In Memoriam|

By Alex Hopper, American Songwriter / MSN | John Denver has no shortage of songs about the wonders of nature, but perhaps the most well-known is “Rocky Mountain High.” Revisit the meaning behind this Denver staple! Sometimes it takes a specific location to grow into the person you were meant to be. In Denver’s case, that place was the picturesque mountains of Colorado. Denver made his love of the natural world well-known on many occasions. This song is a love letter to the place that gave the singer-songwriter (whose real name is Henry John Deutschendorf Jr.) his stage name.

(Editor’s note: I always thought it had more to do with the feeling you get camping in the mountains than in smoking weed! And only someone who’s been camping in the Colorado mountains would know exactly what we’re talking about! Try camping in the Red Feather Lakes area sometime and see how many songs come to YOU!)
