DT Lyrics:




Subject: Lyr Req: Chris De Burgh/Princess Diana
From: wilbyhillbilly
Date: 20 Oct 09 - 07:10 AM

I heard this song only once just after Princess Di's death, before Elton John cashed in by altering his version of Candle In The Wind, (which I think was an insult).

Chris De Burgh was being interviewed on the telly and had written this as a tribute for Di and sung it live, it was great and I don't know why it wasn't used.

All I can remember was, it was something about there will be another star in the heavens, can anyone PLEASE put my mind at rest and come up with either lyrics or title.

Now there's a challenge!!

I wonder if anyone will be brave enough to admit to knowing details of a song by the ghastly De Burgh.......

There's A New Star In Heaven Tonight

No, I don't know it but from distant memory it's as banal as you might imagine and frighteningly easy to google.

Is it true that the Parisian mortuary attendants on the night of the crash were closing up the body bags while they sang 'Zip-a-dee Dodi, zip-a-dee Di'.

Sorry.....................

Thank you for the replies, I'll ignore the detrimental comments on the premise that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but some people just like to foist them on others at any given opportunity.

Personally, I thought Mr Dwight's rewrite of his Candle In The Wind for Ms Spencer was an insult to the memory of Ms Mortenson for whom it was originally intended.
C de Burgh is unremittingly pants, as are the sickly lyrics of both Goodbye English Rose and New Star in Heaven.

"Personally, I thought Mr Dwight's rewrite of his Candle In The Wind for Ms Spencer was an insult to the memory of Ms Mortenson for whom it was originally intended."

Yes absolutely, a totally lazy and tasteless cash-in I thought.

I mean why buy brand new funeral flowers for every death that comes along over the years, when you can just recycle the same old plastic wreath for the funeral of each loved-one?

There's a new Star up in Heaven Tonight.
Perhaps this will help. Best wishes, Mike.

And here are the lyrics... Best wishes, Mike.

Shadows darken and the day is done
And I cannot believe that it's true and you are gone
You were always here beside me
You gave so much as the queen of hearts
To those without love
You were their voice when they could not speak
A touch for the dying

And as we say goodbye I can hardly see
For the tears in my eyes
You are shining like a million suns
And there's a new star up in heaven tonight

I wonder if you ever knew
How much you were loved
And in the darkness of a lonely room
Were you empty inside?
As you fade away it's like a light
Has gone from the world
But I am sure that there is a place
Where it will burn on forever

And as we say goodbye I can hardly see
For the tears in my eyes
You are shining like a million suns
And there's a new star up in heaven tonight

And there's a new star up in heaven tonight

The ditty is entitled There's A New Star In Heaven Tonight (not "up"), as I indicated earlier.
You can all now see why I delined to reproduce such drivel when it's readily googlable. Good grief, somebody's going to import it into the DT next . . .

Allmusic.com lists the title as THERE'S A NEW STAR UP IN HEAVEN TONIGHT (emphasis added). So does Amazon.co.uk.

Now, Echo, if you told me you checked your own copy of the CD, I might believe you.

I thought Crispy Burk was Ok up to and including "Don't pay the ferryman". Seems to have gone off the rails when some bint in crimson ran into him.

Did you know EJ did another version a year later when Mother Theresa died?

"Sandal in the bin"

:D (eG)
