1. John Denver – Fly Away
One of the biggest hits of John Denver’s career, “Fly Away” was featured on his Windsong album in 1975. The audience can hear the talented Olivia Newton-John singing softly along with Denver on this track. Not just a song, “Fly Away” is a more sonic ode to longing for simpler times and a simpler way of life. The lyrics of the song appeal those wishing for the return of simple life: “Where are my days? Where are my nights? / Where is the springtime?”
