Thanks for the suggestions. Of course, more are always welcome. I think these are still my favorites:


I do like the live version much better though.

Poco's A Good Feelin' To Know is a close second.

Heard about this on NPR a few weeks ago.
Not about Colorado per say but it's pointed at Aspen.

What?! Nobody has mentioned C.W. McCall, yet?

Wolf Creek Pass
Black Bear Road
The Silverton Train

There's nothing like driving up US 550 with a good ol' C.W. McCall casette in the deck.

...another poignant Judy Collins' song with a Colorado flavour: Born To The Breed

"Home through the streets

With you in my arms

Cold winter mornings

In a Colorado town…"
