Thread Name: Songs You Can't Sing for Crying
Subject: RE: Songs You Can't Sing for Crying
When I was 7, my older brother Pete died of pneumonia. Some 35 odd years later I wrote a song about him. I had tears running down my cheeks throughout the writing and didn't dare sing it in public for the next 6 to 8 months for fear of blubbering on stage. It is still my favorite of all the songs I have written, and it still makes me glow inside with his memory.
