A happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and families out there from PlanetPOV!
One I woke up with and had to add.
For my dear Irish Dad from Derry. R.I.P. 1893 – 1952
Rest in peace my wonderful Welshman, and thank you for everything.
Joe Cocker – You Are So Beautiful (LIVE in Berlin) HD
Beautiful song and beautiful choice in tribute to your Dad, Kalima.
I’m going to be selfish here on Father’s Day, because this is my late Father singing.
Absolutely fabulous PPO. Love it, love it, love it! The unofficial anthem of Dublin! So glad you did put this in and you’re not being the sligthest bit selfish. Great song, great man and perfect diction!
You are very, very kind, Fergie. Thank you.
Pretty nice, PPO.
I think I have heard his voice before.
..and finally for each of my daughters…
One more, Father to Son:
You beat me to it PPO! This is my all time favorite about my Dad. It does bring me to tears but the sentiment brings a smile. Thank you for posting this. 🙂
My Dad wasn’t but…still a great song.
Well, if no one else is going to post it:
From the vault:
I’m sorry gentle friends, but I have few happy memories.
And my mother and father were murdered by the Health Destruction Industry.
Whether they had money or not.
But the song I include was always my greatest hope, I hope you enjoy it.
I miss you Mommy and Daddy.
“Because she had no insurance, my mother died the death of a thousand undeserved cuts.
Because he had insurance my father died the death of purposeful negligence.
Their suffering was not in vain.”
A Future of the Brave
Opening Theme From Courtship of Eddie’s Father – Harry Nilsson
Nice choice Ad. I really liked this show and the theme song.
Wish I could “think of nothing” sometimes! 🙂
