Music on My Mind

George Donaldson, "The Parting Glass". This drinking song goes back at least to the eighteenth century. Recent versions tend to be oversung, but this is very much an exception; beautifully, very beautifully, done. The singer, alas, recently died.

Still valiantly fighting the Grading Beast; but the end is in sight.

    Must explain why you have a drinking song on your mind.
