Song of the Day: Take Me Home, Country Roads
Today’s song is Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver.
This is a wonderful driving song.
It was also overused for some reason in various media in the mid 2010’s (a-la Fallout 76 and the Kingsman sequel)
Eh. Good music endures over the generations. The song is 50 years old (as of this year).
It has legs.
Drivin’ down the road, I get a feelin’ that I should’ve been home yesterday, yesterday.
The twang of the banjo and the steel guitar. It’s beautiful (and somehow haunting).
Not much else to say about this folk classic.

I’ve talked about hundreds of them, so you’re bound to find something entertaining.
