“Take Me Home Country Roads” performed by Olivia Newton-John. That look in her eyes and on her face when the camera pans in on her is perfect for the song. She looks really good for this song and video (from 1972). Unfortunately, the audio and video do not track, which is quite annoying.
The song is loved around the world — Olivia performed it in Japan in 1976.
Someone named Lisa Ono did a version of the song, too, in a nice video.
And John Denver did the song with Kohsetsu Minami in 1983. I like that Oriental lilt to his voice.
There’s even a line dance to it!! The song is sung by the Hermes House Band, and sounds quite different from Ms. Newton-John’s and John Denver’s versions. The Band even has a silly, goofy video of “Country Roads”.
