Simi,

'Foolish Games' by Jewel is one of all time favorite songs. Anothe is "For Lovin' Me' from Peter Paul & Mary. Have you had a chance to hear them?

BTW, whatever happened to your articulate commnentaries? I used to enjoy reading them....(and arguing over!!) Bring them back!

I am quite impresssed by "The Wedding Song" by Noel Paul Stookey, the Paul of Peter, Paul, and Mary. It was played at my wedding, twenty years ago.

When I saw this page, I thought about you.

This is a RealAudio clip from the page, where John himself describes how he was given "Annie's Song":

Standing here,
Outside your door..

I hate to wake you up, to say goodbye..



Can't escapte those words. They will forever eclipse any other John Denver song, for me :|


Annie's Song's great though.
