Top Five Songs to Hear in the Mountains

Top Five Songs to Hear in the Mountains

So, as a mini-vacation, a cation if you will, my wife and I went to a small Ellijay cabin. Ignoring the dog freaking out about potential bears, we listened to some wonderfully relaxing music and watched the stars from a hot tub. These are the top five songs to listen to on a beautiful, relaxing, mountain weekend.

1. Bela Fleck and the Flecktones – Big Country

In the still of night, the beauty of this simple banjo, bass, and wind ensemble is bliss.

2. Blitzen Trapper – Furr

This tale of one man’s discovering of nature and the freeing of this discovery in his innocence is incredible. His attempts to reclaim it as he matures are heartbreaking. The sounds echo off of the emptiness of the surroundings. The song is made all the more beautiful by the nature itself.

3. The String Cheese Incident – Road Home

(Sorry about the link; it is not on youtube and I cannot embed it for some reason.) This is another great bluegrass song that comes across in a great way. A little more upbeat than the other two, but still very much mountain country.

4. Phish – Kill Devil Falls

I know that there are a lot of Phish Songs that I could choose Rocky Top or Farmhouse, but I wanted to keep going up beat, besides I think their most recent album didn’t get enough attention.

5. Grateful Dead – Friend of the Devil

How appropriate that Phish and Grateful Dead are together. This is another incidence where a lot of songs would do, but I love this song. Even as it speeds up, it seems to relax.

I know what you are thinking right now. What about Bob Dylan, A.A. Bondy, Mountain Man, my beloved Mumford and Songs or thousands of other mountainy songs. Well, make your own list, those artists will have their own days.
