Dan Fogelberg Songs
I became a fan of Dan Fogelberg a few years ago when I heard his song Windows and Walls from the album with the same title. It was released in 1984.
I was quite sad to see the news today. The music legend passed away too soon. But he will be remembered forever for his contributions to the music world.
Dan Fogelberg has many hits that are popular around the world that includes same old lang syne, leader of the band, longer... to name a few.
I have included some of my favorite Dan Gogelberg music videos with this.
Daniel Grayling Fogelberg was born on August 13, 1951, Peoria, Illinois. His music was inspired by sources as diverse as folk, pop, classical, jazz, and bluegrass music. Graduated from Woodruff High School in 1969, he spent some time as a session musician for artists like Van Morrison.

Windows And Walls Lyrics
Windows And Walls
Up every morningLong before day Cooking her breakfast alone She quietly dresses And pulls up the shades And sits in the chair by the phone. But nobody ever comes by anymore Nobody ever calls Most days she sits and just stares At the windows and walls Windows and walls. Children all married Husband's passed on Nothing but time on her hands Most of her mornings Are spent in her dreams Or making her sad little plans. Maybe she'll go to the corner today And pick up the new McCalls If just to escape for an hour From her windows and walls Windows and walls. The clock on the mantel Chiming the hours Must be the loneliest sound She washes her dishes and waters her flowers And afterwards has to sit down. Sometimes she still can remember a child Playing with china dolls... Now all that she's left Are these memories and windows and walls Windows and walls (day after day) Windows and walls.
