*The Pixies aren’t dead, Clicky… /furrows brow… Phew! You had me worried there…*

Songs from dead artists today, Dear Reader…

*Is it me, or is Leggy’s choice out of sync? …/lights up and smokes… Weird…*

*No, Poppy Sweet Pea’s choice plays okay…*

… It’s not the nicest of subjects, so joining Cade, below, will be Clicky…

*Wait, no! Deadmau5 isn’t dead!*

Day 25: songs by artists that are no longer living

Cade’s first song pick…

Prolly a safe bet that whoever wrote this…

is dead

So let’s start there.

^The Oldest Known Melody (Hurrian Hymn no.6 – c.1400 B.C.)^

Clicky’s first song pick…

^Aretha Franklin & George Michael – I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me) [Official Video]^

Cade’s second song pick…

OK, so, we’ve got us some music. But in order to modernize and lay the groundwork for the commercial music and entertainment industries to come, we’re going to need some lyrics. I guess whomever wrote this shiz is also likely to be…

dead
^Poems by Hungry Coyote Nezahualcoyotl, poet of ancient Mexico^

Clicky’s second song pick…

^Prince Love Is A Losing Game With Amy Winehouse^

Cade’s third song pick…

We’ve figured out how to make music, we’ve figured out how to write some accompanying vocals, so let’s get them together, and we’ll let Israel bring it all home for us. Unfortunately, this Israel dude you are about to hear singing and playing the ukulele…

is dead
^OFFICIAL Somewhere over the Rainbow – Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole^

Clicky’s third song pick…

^David Bowie – Let’s Dance (Official Video)^

The final word to Clicky Roob…

I only found out last year the fantastic guitar solo on ‘Let’s Dance’ was played by Stevie Ray Vaughan (deceased). Here he is playing ‘Voodoo Chile’ by – also deceased – Jimi Hendrix…

Just five more days to go for the 30 day challenge, Dear Reader. The songs presented tomorrow will be ones that ‘make you want to fall in love’…

*Oh boy, Clicky… /stubs butt… do you have a lot to learn…*

… Have a Song… 😉
