Review about John Denver songs
    ------ About the song Today performed by John Denver

this is my favorite song, and do not recall hearing anyone except my High School choir sing it, before. It is the song I would have wanted to audition with, when I still had the voice to do it justice.

    ------ About the song Matthew performed by John Denver

I was raised on a farm in Nebraska. A wheat farm. My brother named Matthew . This strikes a cord in my heart. He is an only son never married and has a good time with his nephews ( my sons). Very poignant . Love the lyrics.

    ------ About the song A Song For All Lovers performed by John Denver

Because of this song, I became interested to visit and see Alaska with my wife Dina.

The message of their love for each other in this song is somehow a strong message for the new generation as an example to follow.

A song for two heart beating as one. To answer in kindness, to ever be gentle to ever be strong.

    ------ About the song Perhaps Love performed by John Denver

i was at a loss when the father of my daughter left of another woman. though I knew he was a hopeless case, preferring playing computer games to coming home and playing with our daughter, nonetheless i waited for him to grew up..all the waiting, and finally the painful betrayal, made me question if there is indeed love..i came upon this song and made me realize that love is letting go of the father of my daughter and holding on to my dear daughter. thanks to john denver for making me finally sever all the ties with the person i thought will be my husband and forever love.

    ------ About the song Leaving On A Jet Plane performed by John Denver

I feel so sad everytime i hear this song, my boyfriend left me to work on our future. We're together for 6 years, and this the first time that were apart from each other. I can still remember the day he left, the moments at the airport, the plane on the runway till it take off. Those sleepless nights, eating alone. It hurts me alot. Imiss him. Lyrics of this song relate how i feel. :'(

My husband,Alistair,died in my arms of a massive heart attack,
after only 4 years of marriage, in 1985. This sensitive song gave
me great comfort even then and still does,all these years later.
