Absolutely makes sense to me.............I have a whole list of singers who made some great songs and when I hear them I feel sad that they have died. When we become attached to their music we feel we know them personally through their songs. That melancholy feeling comes over me !
Ritchie Valens, Ricky Nelson, Buddy Holly, Selena, Andy Gibb, Karen Carpenter, Bobby Darin, Marty Robbins, John Denver, John Lennin, Roy Orbison and Michael Jackson.
Many others to numerous to list here.
I suspect we are both sensitive to the loss of these talented people. We also happen to love music.
