John Denver - The Strangest Dream - 1971

John Denver singing Ed McCurdy's anti-war song "The Strangest Dream "

Ed McCurdy (January 11, 1919 - March 23, 2000) was a folk singer, songwriter, and television actor. He is known for his widely-covered anti-war classic, "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream," which has been recorded in seventy-six languages...

And here's a bit also from Wikpedia about John Denver:

John Denver (December 31, 1943October 12, 1997), born Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr., was an American folk singer-songwriter and folk rock musician who was one of the most popular artists of the 1970s. He recorded and released some 300 songs, about half of which he had composed, and was named Poet Laureate of Colorado in 1977. Denver's songs were suffused with a deep and abiding kinship with the natural world. Songs such as "Take Me Home, Country Roads", "Leaving on a Jet Plane", "Calypso", "Annie's Song", "Thank God I'm A Country Boy", and "Rocky Mountain High" are popular worldwide. Denver has been referred to as "The Poet For the Planet", "Mother Nature's Son" (based on The Beatles song he covered) and "A Song's Best Friend".

And here is another beautiful & passionate song " CALYPSO " written by John Denver for the great work being done by Jacques Cousteau for helping us all to better understand the life within the sea...

Anyway here is a wonderfully bizarre & surreal film TIDELAND by Terry Gilliam which I really enjoyed & I would recommend which is a darker vision than that of say " The Bridge to Taribethia "but not nearly as brutal as Pan's Labyrinth which I also highly recommend...


Trailer to TIDELAND

take care,
