This is probably the most unusual post I've ever entered on this blog. Usually the blog entries center on a band or a solo artist, and their music and works. But in this case, its a song dedicated to someone lost to our family today.

You can read about it if you like here

Ray Davies, the singer and principle songwriter of The Kinks wrote the song about a man who failed in a suicide attempt. That failure led to a new affirmation of his life. Its been a song that's been playing in the back of my mind ever since we knew that the death of a loved one was imminent.

Here's Life Goes On by the Kinks, audio only, from the 1977 album SLEEPWALKER.

I'll do a thorough history of the Kinks at a later date.

Seeya in a few.
