If you're a John Denver purist, whose heart was absolutely brimming with glee this past spring when the singer, formerly known as Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr., became the first inductee in the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, it'll probably be the latter. If you're put off by the inherent nerdiness of John Denver, meanwhile, this Pretty Lights remix might actually make his music more palatable. Only one way to know for certain. Give it a spin below.
