A random musing.

And it's only nominally about music.

I actually feel kinda bad about Anna Nicole Smith's passing. There was something about her that I found endearing; maybe it was the craziness. It could also be because there were trace elements of original tragic starlets Marilyn Monroe and Jane Mansfield in her trainwreck of a persona.

But here's my real question: Is Sir Elton John gonna rewrite "Candle in the Wind" for her?

Maybe you guys should do it. Post your new version in the comments field.

Goodbye Anna Nicole
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While smacked out on all those pills
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the TrimSpa
And they made you marry that withered old billionaire

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who your baby’s daddy was
Before the paternity tests set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But you were way too blitzed
Your candle burned out long before
Your Blood Alcohol Content never did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Playboy created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All that Fox News had to say
Was that Anna was more important than Iraq

Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man watching your E True Hollywood story
Who sees you as something as more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

I wonder a) why they asked them back with such a poor turnout last time and b) whether I'll be able to see his Aura again?
