Chilly Winter Snow Scenes

My Faves for Sunday, December 16, 2007

Dan Fogelberg, the singer and songwriter whose hits defined the soft-rock era, died on Sunday. His songs, such as “Same Old Lang Syne,” were powerful in their simplicity, conveying his emotions through his soft, tender delivery and his poignant lyrics. Wonderful photographs and the music video of “Same Old Lang Syne” are included.

“Yours: The Sentiment of Eternal Love.” This is a great, sensual high-resolution photograph. Also, there is a delightfully humorous and totally quirky animated musical video, “Yours.”

The animation is a modern look back at “Yours,” which was a popular song in its day. Its sentiment of eternal love felt poignant during WWII, with all of its separated loves.

Have a look and enjoy!!

“Photo of the Day: You are Beautiful.” Yes, you really are. This is an elegantly sensual Black and White photograph, presented in stunning high-resolution. It’s accompanied by a wonderful photo-gallery, as well as a very touching, related music video. The overall theme of this piece is “Diversity Makes Our World Richer.” And always remember, our differences make our wealth.

Take a look, and I hope that you enjoy it!

Dan Fogelberg Dies at 56: Music was Powerful in Simplicity

Dan Fogelberg, the singer and songwriter whose hits Leader of the Band and Same Old Lang Syne helped to define the soft-rock era, died Sunday at his home in Maine after battling prostate cancer. Fogelberg learned that he had advanced prostate cancer in 2004. In a statement then, he thanked fans for their support. “It is truly overwhelming and humbling to realize how many lives my music has touched so deeply all these years,” he wrote. “I thank you from the very depths of my heart.”

Mr. Fogelberg’s music was powerful in its simplicity. His voice conveyed his emotions through his soft, tender delivery and his poignant lyrics. Songs like Same Old Lang Syne, in which a man reminisces after meeting an old girlfriend by chance during the holidays, became classics not only for his performance, but also for their engaging story lines.
