Not only are we saying goodbye to the old year, but also to all those great musicians who have left us. In this (by far not complete) list of persons we lost this year, we stop to remember them and their contribution to music. It would not have been the same without them.

The rock band Blue Öyster Cult is a rock band which is a little forgotten… they had a big hit in 1976, written and sung by the guitarist of the band. The music is built around the guitar riff and the text was about love and death (which is inevitable, that’s the idea). Main idea: don’t fear death, since we all will die in the end… These things combined in the song made it go to number 12 in the US and number 16 in the UK. Enjoy

Pearl Jam… rock/grunge music from the nineties, but I don’t know a lot of songs by Pearl Jam… This is actually one of these songs, but I don’t know more by Pearl Jam. Well, they made the album Ten, which is quite famous, but their music is a mystery to me. Anyone got any ideas which songs to listen to explore the world of Pearl Jam?
Okay, what do I know by Pearl Jam? This relaxed song with a very good text. Listen carefully, because it is really about something serious: death… (that’s my interpretation)
Pearl Jam- Just Breathe
