Mountain Top Songs

As requested in a recent poll, the JoAnn’s Gems newsletter scheduled for release on Sunday, March 6, 2001 is themed around mountain experiences.  In April, I will be sharing a music therapy session titled “Mountain Top Sing-along” with my Sterling House Assisted Living friends which will contain many of the following songs:

  • “Climb Every Mountain”
  • “I Love to Go A Wandering”
  • “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”
  • “Rocky Mountain High”
  • “Rocky Top”
  • “On Top of Old Smoky”
  • “Trail of the Western Pine”
  • “She’ll be Comin’ Round the Mountain”
  • “I Love the Mountains”

I know we will have a great time sharing music and memories.   Songs about mountains are full of imagery.  I imagine there will even be a little yodeling.  Even more ideas will be shared in my newsletter chocked full of resources.  If you are not yet receiving them, sign up today!  In the mean time, feel free to share your favorite mountain songs in the comments below.

  1. My friend, Susan, reminded me of an important one: “When It’s Springtime in the Rockies”. Thank you.

  2. Great quote from http://www.danielafranz.com/2011/03/life-is-too-short-not-to-do-something-that-matters-and-13-other-things-i-gathered-from-the-gaping-void/
    “Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb. We can seek guidance, find a Sherpa, and help each other along the way; but in the end, it is up to the individual to choose to scale that mountain, or to stay at base camp, wondering what the summit looks like. It’s hard to always know what part of their journey another traveler is on, so be kind and help them if you can.”
