Does anyone else find this "song" as irritating and completely inapropriate as I do ? Considering the fact that most of the recently dead harken back at least five decades, why not use some music that exemplifies that fact, and not some new junk that makes no sense whatsoever?

LOL..I'm glad I''m not the only one nutty for this song!! I found it on Itunes, & bought the CD off of Amazon.com.

The song is Called:

Promises

Badly Drawn boy

CD: Born in the U.K.

 

Promises

 

I promise you will get old

I promised you everything

To protect you wherever you go

I'll give you this diamond ring

 

Just promise you will remember

A promise should last forever

Right up to the dying embers

Of a fire that burns so slow

 

It's a different day everyday

Don't want you to walk alone

But how long we carry on

When all of these things have gone

 

Just promise you will remember

That promises last forever

Still after the last dying embers

Of a fire that burns so slowly

 

It's a beautiful thing to do

Sometimes you just have to walk away

Remember I do love you

Have courage in what you say

 

And promise you will remember

That promises last forever

Still after the dying embers

The fire that burns so slowly

 

And sometimes you just have to walk away

Sometimes you just have to walk away

Wishing today was yesterday

Yeah, sometimes you just have to walk away

For instance?

 

The song is fine. One can argue the merits of whether the tune is appealing but the lyrics seem to fit.

In 2001 they used an instrumental piece that was quite appropriate for the mood but the music now is set to speak to today's viewer.
