    Some people just seem to evoke music...either by something they've done, said, or a feeling about them.

    Do you have a song you want to dedicate to someone?

    I have many :)

    This one is for Meister...large landscapes....empty winds....and a longing for a place called Idaho. Truthfully, I should choose Man in the Silver Mountain because he introduced me to Rainbow, but this song is for Meister.

    All that love all those mistakes
    What else can a poor man make?
    So I gave up a life of crime
    I gave it to a friend of mine
    Something else was on my mind
    The only ghost I'm haunted by
    I hear her howling down below
    Idaho oh Idaho

    Wolves oh wolves oh can't you see?
    Ain't no wolf can sing like me
    And if it could then I suppose
    He belongs in Idaho
    Packs of dogs and cigarettes
    For those who ain't done packing yet
    My clothes are packed and I want to go
    Idaho oh Idaho

    Out at sea for seven years
    I got your letter in Tangier
    Thought that I'd been on a boat
    Til that single word you wrote
    That single word it landlocked me
    Turned the masts to cedar trees
    And the winds to gravel roads
    Idaho oh Idaho

    This one is for Alan - my little brother, in a manner of speaking, who's wicked humor and generous heart has introduced me to a wide range of music. No surprise - it has to be Janice ;)

    Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose...

    This one is for Intense...I see compassion and integrity, and a deep love of music - this song is you:

    Why don't we listen to the voices in our hearts
    'Cause then I know we'd find we're not so far apart
    Everybody's got to be happy
    Everyone should sing
    For we know the joy of life
    The peace that love can bring

    This song is for another member here, who is also a man of integrity, courage and kindness, and who introduced me to Blackmore's Night (which now exists as a Pandora station) - this one is for Ollie :)
