Who were their favorites?
« on: April 01, 2015, 12:59:58 PM »
My Tim loved music more than anything.  So one of the ways I think I can honor his memory in a way he'd appreciate is to keep talking about the bands he adored and try to carry the torch of musical evangelist as best I can.  And I'm sure I'm not alone - I'm sure all of your spouses had a favorite band/singer/book/author/movie/etc that they loved sharing with others.  So tell us....what was your husband or wife's favorite?  Favorite author, favorite band, favorite movie?  What was that one thing that - when meeting someone for the first time and talking about any type of art - they just couldn't wait to recommend?

My husband's favorite band of all time - without question - was The Flaming Lips.  He especially loved their weird and noisy 90s output.  I couldn't tell you his favorite song or album of theirs - I don't think he could have either - so here's a song from their 1992 album Hit to Death in the Future Head that I know he was quite fond of.  I'm sure he'd appreciate me telling you - the louder you listen, the better :)

Brooks enjoyed old, classic country, such as Hank Williams, Jr, Waylon Jennings, etc. But he also held affinity f or classic rock, as well.

But The Beatles would have topped his list. He could quote even some of their most obscure lyrics. They just touched his soul.

Though lovers be lost, love shall not, and death shall have no dominion--Dylan Thomas
