Michael Row The Boat Ashore - Highwaymen

Crying - Roy Orbison

Run Away - Del Shannon

Take Good Care of My Baby - Bobby Vee

Run Around Sue - Dio and The Belmonts

Roy Orbison brings back SO MANY wonderful memories for me. Great choices for today!

A beautiful collection that really gives me a feeling for Michael. Very sad to hear that you had to say goodbye to him.

Based on his choices in music, I'm sure I would have liked your friend Michael very much.

66 is too young to die; he should have been at the point where he could really start enjoying his golden years but it seems that sometimes the universe has other plans for us.
