Songwords Can Be So Prophetic

The young fella and I have been listening to some Dragon songs recently. I've ripped them from the greatist hits CD that I own and can now listen to them in the car. He sings along as much as he can and loves the music. This boy really is in my own image. Poor bugger.

Anyway, some of the lyrics include, "You only live once, and you might die young". This turned out to be quite prophetic as the lead singer, Marc Hunter, died from throat cancer at the age of 44. I don't suppose that he had any inkling of it when he penned the song, although I see that he was a smoker and, reading the linked article above, a heroin addict.

Great music though, even if I am living in the past.
