He Ain't Heavy, He's Brother...

This is one of my all-time favourite songs. I am sure many others enjoy it as one of their all-time favourites too. The song, at least for me, challenges us to consider what is important to us and what we are prepared to sacrifice of ourselves for others or for a greater good.

The history of the song title is also interesting and, if true, inspiring. The title is the same as the motto for Boys Town.

Enjoy!

Hi Rob,
That's one of my two favorite songs by The Hollies, the other:
"All I need is the air that I breathe"

Something else in common (besides an interest in the law) :D
