All that occupies my headspace, now that we know he's out of the game, is that the likes of Lou are too bright to still shine when the brilliance of music has gone downhill. It's like his greatness naturally ejected him from the planet, so he can go somewhere better to write a song, where he will be understood.
That's it. Lou didn't fit. And I'm afraid more precious ones are going to follow suit, just cause they are naturally rejected by the current system.
...That and that I looooved Berlin. The song that follows is one of the reasons why.
Let's say goodbye, with Lady Day..
