Song of the Day, May 5: The Innocent Age by Dan Fogelberg

FogelbergInnocentSongToday’s song is the title track of Dan Fogelberg’s finest album. For his seventh release, Fogelberg crafted a rich cycle of songs reflecting the journey of life. The Innocent Age is a perfect mission statement for its home disc. The singer captures the open wonder of youth. Cast as a reflection from later years, it’s a clear-eyed presentation, yearning and heartfelt. Rich instrumentation supports a fine, high-register vocal, giving the track an elegiac feel  that is curiously appropriate.

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
