|TFS: Stylin', profilin', and always|
ready with the one-linin'.
One of the songs on my playlist is the Jim Carroll Band's People Who Died. It's a pretty groovin' tune, but it's also pretty depressing as Jim Carroll sings the list of people in his life who have, well, died. He even describes the method each of his friends met their demise:
G-Berg 'n' Georgie let the gimmicks go rotten,
So, they died of hepatitis in upper Manhattan.
Sly in Vietnam took a bullet to the head.
Bobby OD'd on Drano on the night that he was wed.
They were two more friends of mine.
Two more friends that died. I miss 'em. They died.
