I am saddened by the death of Dan Fogelberg. His music moved me at the pinnacle of my youth.
As I have been thinking of what song to post here in memoriam, I listened to them all again, and – I was moved, again. And I cannot chose. I loved each of these for different reasons. There are others too, but these – these were personal.
“Longer” was the soundtrack of my college and going into 7 year relationship. I even wrote the words out on a homemade love-card.
“Same Auld Lang Syne” was the soundtrack of our breakup.
So was “Run for the Roses.”
And, “Leader of the Band” – well, my girlfriends and I used to love to sing “his blood runs through his instrument..” I did love that song too.
Rest in peace Dan, and a big thank you for your music. And the feelings.
