The good life on the river generally depends on its music point-of-view and the restoration of some music to be restored.
This is a good saying from Aldo Leopold regarding the Good Life. The excerpt is very much connected with maintaining the music of the rivers. If there are top songs about hunting and fishing, below is a list of river music that can offer a good life perception.
River Music Playlist
Check the playlist below and be in love with the river over again.
John Prine’s Paradise
Rivers are the main source of social movements. This is regardless of the promise of Civil Rights. River water is the center of community protest based on Prine’s song.
In addition, Prine’s song Paradise made the water greater than metaphor. The song ‘Paradise’ was written to give respect to the mourning of the town’s death on the Green River located in Kentucky. This song is still used as a rallying music for protesting rivers and mountains.
Johnny Cash’s Big River
Big River is pretty much a song for those men who weep on the river banks where his woman was taken away. There are also other songs that can make you cry over your cup of coffee with a river love song.
You may try to listen to ‘River’ by Joni Mitchell’s. Moreover, if you really opt for a more heartbreaking river song, try the song of Antony and the Johnsons ‘River of Sorrow‘.
Deb Talan’s Rocks and Water
This song seems to be the theme-song of women river-runners. The Rocks and Water song really represents the well-blended combination of transparent ruggedness and strong commitment to others. This song by Deb Talan is best to sing while ramping down the water canyon and doing the tandem kayaks.
Son’s of the Pioneers’ Cool Clear Water
Definitely, this song by Sons of the Pioneers is all about the insufficiency of river bodies. Yet, there are times that those who sing this song the loudest are the one furthest from that body of water. Most cowboys really fell in love with this song, the Cool Clear Water. And this song became the anthem of the desert rivers.
Based on old cultures and traditions, rivers are the center for baptisms, revivals, and singing praises of ‘Hallelujah’. What makes this song closer to the river is the absence of any instruments except for finger-snap and hearkens back.
