Black – Wonderful Life (1986)
I’d always meant to put this on the blog at some point but never quite got round to it.
Watching a spot of football tonight with the sound off and listening to Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra” conducted by Fritz Reiner (I know how to live!), I saw the news on the BBC website that Colin Vearncombe (aka Black) had died today, a couple of weeks after a car crash.
Never knew much about him or followed him closely but “Wonderful Life” must mean he leaves a major net positive contribution to the world (and you can trust me on that, I’m an economist).
I’m also assured that this was the first song broadcast over Romanian radio after the revolution!
Here I go out to sea again
