This week we lost one of our bigger-than-life colleagues in the world of Progressive blogging, HumeSkeptic.

Much has been shared about him here and at other blogs. Even if you didn’t know him, you’re invited to join in on this musical tribute with songs about remembering or celebrating those that have passed or those in your life that really matter to you.

The Very Thought of You – Billie Holiday

Miss You – Rolling Stones

You’re My Best Friend – Queen

Time of Your Life – Green Day

My Way – Frank Sinatra

I don’t know if this was Hume’s kind of music, but it’s appropriate and a great song.
“Don’t Fear the Reaper”, BOC

I think Hume once said – Stravinsky speaks to me

Hume was as classic as the music he loved. Here is a piece I bookmarked one of those wonderful late nights when just friends were sharing tunes on HP.

Great choices!!
He did have good taste in music and am sure he would have appreciated everyone’s remembrance of him…it’s certainly made me want to reach out more to the people that quietly influence my life.

When I had to be flat on my back and absolutely still for a bone scan, this was on the radio in the background. I’ll never forget it.
At that point, hafta say, that ‘distance’ felt pretty far away. This song always brings back a rush of bittersweet memories.

Hey bito, how are you? I hope you are doing well.

Hey, Sue! every time i read something about the R.R. (daily- :lol ) I think of you.

SueInCa

Well I am still on their trail LOL. Sharron Angle is a perfect example of one of them. God is telling her to run. I don’t think God wants anything to do with politics.

Hopeington

Hey Sue, ya know that’s right!!:-)

kesmarn

Sue, she misunderstood. God was telling her to run to the nearest mental health clinic. I hope Harry Reid makes lemonade out of that lemon.

Good to see you here, btw!

Hopeington

Hey Kes,,,I made it over and That was a dang funny remark there!! Perfect!
Thanks for the heads up to come on back to the ‘bright’ place…I never seem to be here when anyone else is though…my timing sucks!

kesmarn
Admin

Hope, I just found your comment Saturday morning! (Speaking of timing!) Glad you got a laugh out of my remark. Beck is endless fodder for humor.
Hope we see lots more of you here!

You are welcome. Maura has a voice that always stops me in my tracks. I know that Hume and Floyd R./CarlVee will be keeping the angels in stitches, and that old devil crying for a long time to come.

Thank you, b’ito! I don’t know where my brain is these days. I’m going to blame it on the heat. Seven day forecast on today’s news: 90-90-90-90-90-90-90
