I intended to sing a song more in keeping with our Memorial Day Holiday here, but sadly, life had other plans. :( Around 9:00 PM yesterday, I received word from my family in Australia, that my one and only big Brother, had died. Being on opposite sides of the planet, there's not a lot I can do from here, and it's all rather surreal being separated by such vast time divides. In my realm, the calendar still read May 30, "Memorial Day" on the day of his passing, but in his, it was already May 31st. Gazing at that calendar, time seemed both relevant and irrelevant all at once. I spoke with my niece and nephew just hours ago, cried with them, and we conveyed our love and grief with only the sound of our voices between us. Those moments. . . that amazing sound --- of voices wrapping themselves so tightly together as if to embrace --- became its own powerful force of touch, even while we are worlds apart. He was the best big brother a kid sister could ask for. He taught me how to throw a football, shared my love for music and song, and oh how I loved to hear him sing and play the guitar. He was brilliantly talented -- and this song was one of his all time favorites. He sang and played it like a dream. In memory of my beloved Brother. For you, Dearest Clint, with all my heart and soul. All my love and missing you forever. . . <3 <3 <3
MLP THIS IS A EXCELLENT TRACK FROM YOU "The House of the Rising Sun" is a traditional folk song, sometimes called "Rising Sun Blues". It tells of a life gone wrong in New Orleans; many versions also urge a sibling to avoid the same fate. The most successful commercial version, recorded in 1964 by the British rock group the Animals, was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and also in the United States, Canada and Australia. The song has been described as the "first folk-rock hit"
