The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner (1999)
This song served as the melodic backdrop to Newsbleep 002‘s “In Memoriam” for Steve Irwin. At least, in the first edit of that episode it did. This song has a haunting quality, a love-lost sadness to it. He can not only entertain us with his song-stories, but he can make us cry. Even with a refrain of “lah dah dah”s.
It’s a song about losing someone and not wanting to let go. And we all knew what that felt like. Good bye, Steve Irwin.
