I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he was shot soon before Christmas, so that song (and mainly his voice singing the first the first line, "and so this is Christmas...") is particulary... sad? well, at least for me it is and I remember they used to play it a lot in England during xmas of 1980. A bit masochist... ;)

Our Shadows Taller Than Our Souls

There's still time, but we'll continue *tap, tap* to try and make them sweat bullets *glance at watch* until they've contributed. :grin: :grin:
