In Memorial

 
 
A beloved singer/songwriter passed away yesterday at the young age of 56. Yet another loss of an icon of the 70’s and 80’s music scene.  Dan Fogelberg was a great inspiration to me with not only his music but because he was just a wonderful man.  His songs were in the same vein as James Taylor and Jackson Browne.  He will be missed but always remembered.
 
So for one night, rather than Christmas music here, I’m playing the song about which he said:  "If I could have only written one song in my life, this would have been the one".  It was dedicated to his dad.
 
Enjoy, my friends, and rest in peace Dan.

    We must be feeling the same exact thing!! Hence we practically have the same blog. Mine was Sunday though!
    Isn’t it just horrible? I will miss his spirit. Thank god he gets to live forever though right? This is one of my favorites of his.

    I loved Dan Fogelberg. The music world will miss him. I love this song, too. Personally, I think you should leave it on for another day!!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SONG.  I never knew who sung it or even what the name was, but I remember hearing it when I was little and I would sing along with it.    I am glad that you shared this with us!!!!

    I am typing as I wipe my eyes.  My dad is here visiting.  I heard about this last night.  What an awful loss.  I have a memory of my life for every one of his songs.
     
    He was dear friends with Jimmy Buffet 🙂

    Ok, I know I’m here a day late, but I thought since it was sooo early in the morning surely it would still be here……where o where has that song gone?  o where, o where can it be? (*wink, wink)  that’ll teach me not to put off a good blog!

    Yes, we surely will miss Dan F.!  Although I’m not a big rock fan, I did enjoy his music.  What a shame prostrate cancer took another great one away…what a great song too!

    Dan Fogelberg was born and raised in the Peoria area and a couple of the songs he has written told of his ties to Illinois.  He attended the University of Illinois.  Our papers have been full of the story of his life, and rightly so.

  16. Jane says:

    Sad.  But I get nothing.  No music.  I must’ve missed it.  Typical… a couple days late and one song short.

    Guess this is the wrong place to say that I thought his stuff was kinda lame.  Now, the passing of Warren Zevon a few years back…THAT was one that made me a bit weepy.
     
    Have a fabulous holiday, Bob!

    I only read about his passing yesterday.
    I had no idea the cause until I read thru your comments.
    I grew up listening to Dan.
    What a loss for the music world.
