The Analysis Of The Song “Rocky Mountain High” By John Denver

I’m beginning to understand John Denver’s speech after listening and reading the speech several times. Although I initially thought he was advocating music censorship, I began to think that he is actually advocating against the censorship and censorship. John Denver begins the speech by expressing his gratitude for the opportunity to address the chairman and committee. He also explains how it is an honor to be able to express his opinions and voice his opinion in public. John spoke about the barriers he faced at the beginning. He had to have his own music blocked.

The song Rocky Mountain High was previously banned from radio stations and censored as a drug-related reference. Denver’s true meaning was not understood by those who censored the song. The main storyline of this song is about the feeling of being in Rocky Mountains. John points out the benefits of music not being censored. He talked about how music becomes more interesting when it is not available or denied. Hediscussed how when something is withheld or denied it becomes the most interesting. They may lose interest in the subject matter if they only hear it. After a short introduction, Denver jumps into the main topic of the speech and presents a few solutions or suggestions. John suggests that explicit lyrics and videos can be seen on TV every day. He thinks it is absurd to blame the music industry for explicitlanguage while still watching the same thing on national TV. It’s the same children who are listening to these songs, and it’s all over television. He believes that parents can take responsibility for their children’s education. They needto pay attentionto their interests, needs, and to see that their parents have greater influence on us than any other factor, including music.

John relies on the evidence provided by the people he has had the chance to talk to to support his claims. He’s had the opportunity to speak with troubled kids and their feelings were that they are frustrated by their lives. This is due to their inability to communicate well with their parents. These kids are unable to see or understand any future due to nuclear threat. They don’t believe that anything will improve; they cannot see the future as being more financially rewarding for small farmers or small businesses. This is partly related to his mainsubject matter. It isn’t the media or music that causes trouble in children’s lives, it is their parents.

Music is going to be more appealing to these children than being censored. They will feel more engaged and motivated to hear it. This speech is very interesting. After introducing himself, he then goes straight to facts and evidence. The part that he used to refer to the Chairman in his speech is the one where he said, “Mr. Chairman, the censorship and writing of the spoken or written word is what I consider the root of suppression of people in a society. In Nazi Germany, it was the same.

It is true today in many places where the powerful are afraid of the effects of educated people.” Although I initially didn’t understand his meaning and how they could be associated, I have since come to understand it. He claims that being too educated and smart is viewed negatively in certain countries.

The government doesn’t want to lose too many intelligent and educated people who might be able to advocate for the government. There are many parts and ideas to this speech that tie together. Denver manages to connect all these aspects of his life to the issue of music censorship and how a small act of taking away freedom could lead to a larger problem. It’s better to leave music the way it is.
