I usually don’t do posts like this. I find it’s not my place. But today I can’t help myself. 2016 has claimed another big name, another wonderful artist.
Just yesterday I posted one of my favorite Christmas songs, “Last Christmas” by Wham. While I was preparing our Christmas dinner I played all kind of Christmas music and when this song comes up I usually skip it back so many times that even my daughter, who loves the song almost as much as I do asks me to not play it again. While it was playing my husband and I started talking about George Michael, Wham and their songs. We sort of ended the conversation wondering if George Michael would produce something new soon.
I guess that question is now answered.
There was a post I shared in one of my picks of the week this year. It was about the theory that in 2016 many of the great ones will leave this world. I couldn’t find it but will keep digging and will reblog. It was a very interesting theory and I have to say that over the last months I thought about it very often. Every time one of the great people I personally new or I admired passed away.
I like to think that they all catch up now. Somewhere out there, up there. That they have a chat about their achievements or just about the weather. That they do what they loved doing the most. I hope they have their peace now, all of them. In another place.
