I looked at my repertoire and realized that at least 90% of the writers and artists of these songs are dead. I like to honor these people's contributions to art with a heartfelt remembrance.

Reminds me of my grandma and her newspaper...she would immediately skip to the obituary to see if she knew anyone. Kinda morbid..
In my early 20s I worked at a retirement community. They’d wake up before sun-up and go read the obits. Seemed like some sort of fun leisure activity to them.

Lots of things they did and said were eye-opening to a 21 year old. In a good way, mostly. Good people. Most are gone now, it’s been about 15 years.

It was one lady’s 84th birthday. I told her “Happy Birthday” of course. She responded something like “84 is enough.. I’m ready to go.” That was shocking to a kid who thought they wanted to live forever.

I have what might be a different take on death. If someone lives a full long life and has enriched your life to some degree, famous or not their death (as ours) was inevitable. It then should be celebrated and shared with others who were similarly touched by their existence.
Rumours about MY DEATH were not exaggerated...! 😱😱😱
