Send Ringtones to Cell

Dusty day dawning, three hours late
Open the curtains and let the rest wait
My mind goes running three thousand miles east
I may miss the harvest but I won't miss the feast

    Too bad Dan isn't here any more, wonder what his songs would have been about if he would have survived? Thanks for the music...

    Get away from a handful of his popular songs ("Longer" - in particular) and this guy was as good as they come. A large body of work with a staggering number of exemplary tunes.

    @ patricknoonan Ha ! Ha ! I like some of Barry Manilow's stuff . Not a lot of it but I grew up with him on the radio and some of them songs bring back some very fond memories . But I definitely agree with you about your similar artists . Poco and Jackson Browne are both very similar and very good bands .

    Another Peoria kid made good. We still have that black dirt under our nails, in our shoes and in our blood. The 14's of Colorado, the Blues of Arizona and all the beauty of the West call us now, but we are still Illinois boys. Your music lives on!

    Argh. It pains me to see that "Similar Artists" list includes Barry Manilow. I guess Fogelberg's body of work includes some schlocky stuff, but I prefer to remember him as being a "Similar Artist" to Jackson Browne and Poco.
