2016 In Memoriam – Playlist

2016 has seen it’s share of tragedies with Musicians.  I know each year there are a lot of musician’s that pass away, but for some reason this year seems to have taken quite a few from us.  Now that the year is almost over, I have updated the list to include musicians that have passed away in the last few months.  I started this back in April/May.  Hopefully that will be it for 2016.  Let’s hope 2017 doesn’t bring more of the same.

In memory of all the artist we have lost so far this year, here is a playlist so we can remember the gift of music that they left us that will live on forever.

P.M. Dawn singer, Attrell Cordes, died June 17th.

Dawn.  He was only 46 and died of kidney failure.  I hate that I am already updating my In Memoriam playlist from just over a week ago.  In his memory, I am posting my 3 favorite songs from P.M. Dawn and probably their most famous songs – “I’d Die Without You”, “Looking Through Patient Eyes” and “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss”.

Rest in Peace Mr. Cordes!
