I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Sunset is an angel weeping / Holding out a bloody sword

Saddest Song Ever (according to Neko Case)

At the Stanley Park Singing Exhibition the divine and magnificent Mrs. Neko Case declared Don’t Forget Me by Harry Nilsson “one of the saddest songs ever.”

With that kind of authority (Neko is, without a doubt, the modern Queen of the Maudlin Lyric) behind it, how can you go wrong?

Don’t Forget Me by Harry Nilsson
In the wintertime keep your feet warm
But keep your clothes on and don’t forget me
Keep the memories
But keep your powder dry too

In the summer by the poolside
While the fireflies are all around you
All miss you when I’m lonely
I’ll miss the alimony too

Don’t forget me - don’t forget me
Take it easy if only for a little while
You know I think about you
Let me know you think about me too

And when we’re older and full of cancer
It doesn’t matter, come on get happy
‘Cause nothing lasts forever
But I will always love you

Don’t forget me, please don’t forget me
Make it easy if just for a little while
You know I think about you
Let me know you think about me too
