Wow: Part Two, Steyn on Hal David

A real treat.

It's pretty neat when someone can use words alone to make you hear someone's lyrics and music in your head.

Read the second part of Steyn's beautiful tribute here.

I chanced upon a BBC article about David's passing. 

This part got to me:

"David's wife, Eunice, told the Associated Press news agency that he had suffered a major stroke in March and was stricken again on Tuesday."

"Even at the end, Hal always had a song in his head," she said.

"He was always writing notes, or asking me to take a note down, so he wouldn't forget a lyric."
