In honor of this week’s Perseid metor shower, #TBT #throwbackthursday to the summer of 1972: “‘Rocky Mountain High’ was written during the first summer we lived in the Rocky Mountains. I was starting to go camping and fishing, and doing other things that I’d wanted to do all my life, and in the place where I most wanted to be. Everything was new and full of possibility, and I was so happy. I found some new friends and lost an old friend… One night on a camping trip to watch the Perseid meteor shower, when it was literally “raining fire in the sky,” I started writing this very personal song of my rebirth.”
~ John Denver, on writing “Rocky Mountain High”
