Rewrite: Newton-John and Denver’s iconic performance of “Fly Away” in the “Rocky Mountain Christmas” special gained a bump in views on social media after the Australian singer’s death in August 2022. Looking at the song’s lyrics, they’re somewhat ominous . It talks about the music icon’s last days before her passing.

The song’s lyrics say: “All her days have become soft and cloudy, All her dreams have dried up, All her nights have become sad and shadowy, She’s getting ready to fly.”

Although the song is already 47 years old, the ever-present themes of longing and separation in a modern world full of attachments still speak volumes today.

Fans of both artists took to the comments section to remember them, with some even sharing their fondest memories of hearing the song:

“What a beautiful, great 70s vibe. They’re gone now, no one makes music like that anymore.

“Two of my favorite people from my childhood to this moment. So many memories. Thank you both with all my heart. Your presence has made this world a much better place,” one user posted.

“These two had a beautiful Christmas show. I used to watch them when I was younger and wished I could be there and hang out with them. Heaven must be happy to have both of them,” one precious person shared.

Truly, good music transcends time. Denver and Newton-John’s timeless piece is a testament to that.

Aside from “Fly Away”, Newton-John was also known for covering “Take Me Home, Country Roads” in Denver, launching the song to great heights in the UK and Japan. A year later, the two returned to television, appearing as guest stars on The Carpenters’ Very First Television Special
