Requiem For A Heavyweight

Ever wonder what a Candle in the Wind remake would sound like if Elton John did one for every celebrity that dies? asks the ingenious Ken From Illinois. But he doesn't stop there; when a star twinkles out, Ken makes the dream real for readers of his blog and mailing list.

Goodbye Chris Penn
Character roles knew you pretty well
You played the Reservoir nice guy
Your bio sure would tell
You crawled out of nowhere
With minor roles in your hand
Never being able
To get out of your brother shadow again

And it seemed to me that you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind...
Read the rest of the lyric, along with tributes to Peter Jennings, Bob Denver and others, at Candle In The Wind Celebrity Remixes.
