Thread Name: Superstition: death-causing songs
Subject: RE: BS: Superstition: death-causing songs

A few years ago I hosted a musical get-together at my house and left a tape running all evening to catch what I could. We had sing-arounds and sing-alongs and generally had a fine time, hitting a high point with a rousing version of the same song.

A little less than a year later, my harp-playing partner died. In the days that followed, several of his family told me they were really sorry they didn't have a single recording of him playing, so I offered to go through my tapes and cull out his best tracks. His best? You guessed it. I didn't have the heart to include it on the tapes I handed out.
