GUEST,Larry Saidman Bad song choices at a gig (74* d) RE: Bad song choices at a gig 28 Dec 11


Actually, if you listen to the original French version (Jacques Brel) or the original Rod McKuen translation, you'll find that Seasons in the Sun is very "humorous"....although it may be black humour.   The song ends with the protagonist revealing how he knows about the affair his wife has been having with his friend.....and he tells her that after he dies "look for me cause I'll be there".

And those stars we could reach? they're "just starfish on the beach".

I suspect that it's a song that people in a hospice could appreciate.
