Jimmy gave us rainbows,
and Janice took a piece of our hearts,
and Otis brought us all
to the dock of the bay.
Sing a song to light my fire,
remember Jim that way.
They've only found another place
another place to play.
If you believe in forever,
then life is just a one-night stand.
If there's a rock and roll heaven,
well you know they've got a helluva band, band, band.
Remember bad bad Leroy Brown,
how Jimmy touched us with that song.
And time won't change the way
we used to know.
And Bobby gave us Mack the Knife,
look out, he's back in town.
They'll all be there together
when they meet in one big show.

Don't forget Kirsty MacColl, perhaps best known for singing "Fairytale of New York" with The Pogues. In 2000, she was swimming at a South American beach when a reckless speedboad driver ran her over. I really admired her voice and liked her work.

Isn't is strange that so many singers that died young did so when flying? In almost every case, it involved chartered aircraft, further compounded by bad weather, mechanical problems or overloaded. I would suggest it is a lot harder than normal, even for charter flights.
