Worth Noting

It has become an annual event for me to note the date that Dan Fogelberg died of prostate cancer, back in 2007.

I started learning his music while I was in college and I continue to play it today.

The fact is that more men die from prostate cancer than women do of breast cancer, but women often die younger and seem to have a better lobby.  Here is but one study.  There are many out there if you are interested.

So men, get regular check-ups because life is short and dead is for a very long time.

For me, picking a Fogelberg song to highlight is like an 8-year old walking into a candy store and being told he can pick out one thing.

So, to keep it simple, I will share the song that Dan said was his favorite.

“My all-time favorite track. The critics dismissed it because of its length but I am still fiercely proud of it. It was an immense undertaking and took months to complete. I consider this probably my best journalistic lyric writing. A movie for the ears, all it lacks is the popcorn.” (Dan Fogelberg)

    Of course, my favorite song that I can never listen to is Longer. It makes me cry all the time. Beauty does that to one. Thank you for reminding EVERYONE to get checked and get moving. Life IS too short.

    I’ve never heard that Fogelberg song – kind of depressing.
