The R.I.P thread


#21

Will be remembered by me for THAT goal. Captain of quite possibly the best team ever.


#22

It’s the only World Cup final where the winners were show boating for most of the game.
Like you say, possibly the greatest side ever, certainly at international level.


#23

Not Leonard, not now. :cry:


#24

2016 strikes again.


#25

Damn. R.I.P.


#26

R.I.P.


#27

No way Ramsey could have kept up with this, this year.


#28

Properly sad to see the loss of Leonard Cohen, my favourite singer-songwriter. The best lyricist bar none.


#29

I’m thoroughly depressed by now, been listening to his songs non-stop for two days.


#30

No doubt his lyrics were superb but I could never get past the voice, so I couldn’t possibly listen to him. It grieves me to see him described as a ‘singer’.


#31

Honestly it’s like you’ve stolen my exact assessment of Bob Dylan haha


#32

Yep, Dylan. Neck and neck with Cohen in the vocal department.


#33

Tom Waits is another one, and Lou Reed.
Great songs, but not great singers.
I suppose it’s personal preference.
I can listen to any of these singer songwriters but for not too long.


#34

Going to throw Bjork name into this, just to show blokes dont have the monopoly on dodgy vocalists.


#35

I don’t know, Victoria Beckham is in a class of her own, when it comes to dodgy vocals.


#36

I’ve never heard VB sing. Is it that even, like all of those mentioned so far, she can’t even be saved by Auto-Tune? That said, every recording you hear now has been run through Auto-Tune to greater or lesser degree. Not many genuinely good natural singing voices around, unfortunately.


#37

Andrew Sachs has passed away. :pensive:

RIP.


#38

Omg 2016 is the WORST


#39

No way!!! Genuinely gutted. Massive Fawlty Towers fan :pensive:


#40

Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake and Palmer has died.
His christmas song is by far the best ever written.
Great man of music.
