    The John Denver song?

    Yes, it's a good song. It's awesome how WVU sings it after victories. Weird thread though.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    What a strange topic. Good song, but still ******* weird.

    Weird thread though.
    Midnight on a Friday? I think it's pretty easy to explain the thread... Torn's been drinking and has a song stuck in his head.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Good song. I was kind of raised on John Denver by my mom, though.

    Side note: Israel Kamakawiwo'ole re-did the song to give it a Hawaiian base which is also a pretty good song.

    Well, yeah, I kind of assumed that I just don't think I've ever seen a thread about a song here though.

    I've always thought it would be a cool ISU "victory" song, but obviously WVU already uses it and the song specifically mentions the state of West Virginia, so it would be a total rip-off.

    And I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this. That John Denver's full of ****, man.
