“Got to be a joker, He just do what he please.”

“Come Together” by Robin Williams and Bobby McFerrin | I’m writing this because, well, Robin Williams. I am intensely saddened. He is one of my favorite actors, and the first favorite I decided on as a ten-year-old. (Quick recollection on my other blog here.) He covered this song, with Bobby McFerrin, for a compilation of Beatles covers released by Sir George Martin in 1998. (Robin also appeared in the music video for Bobby’s biggest hit, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”.) Of course, we all know him as manic comedian and focused dramatist. Struggled like everyone else, rose above it like everyone else. I am intensely saddened of hearing his death today. Like a part of me has gone, a part that wasn’t supposed to go. [NB]
