Dan Fogelberg Covers Neil Young's "Birds" on YouTube
A quite heartbreaking cover by Dan Fogelberg of Neil Young's "Birds" on YouTube.
The track "Birds" is on Dan Fogelberg's final album Love In Time, which was released on August 13, 2009 -- his 58th Birthday -- approximately two years after his death. He recorded the tunes in his own studio at his home in Colorado before his death and then put the recordings away - to be released after his death. After his death, his wife Jean sent them off to be finished and commercially packaged.
The last song of the album is dedicated to his wife Jeanie. Listening to someone who knows that he will soon die while singing the refrain 'It's over...it's over' is "unbelievably poignant".
Thanks Pat & Sheri (for correction).
