Here’s one song that was finished and in the can, but never saw the light of day. First recorded in 2012 and finished shortly before he died, this is a wonderful track, although the lyrics are quite dark. It’s included on the soundtrack for “Last Christmas”
“The Crown” Season 3: Love, love, love Olivia Coleman, so looking forward to seeing her take over as Queen Elizabeth II. Looks like she’s diving straight into a huge amount of drama with her sister Princess Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter), her son’s unwise marriage to Diana, and the country generally falling apart. On Netflix, November 17th. “The Good Liar”: A twisty thriller with two of our greatest living actors? I’m there. This stars Helen Mirren as a wealthy widow and
Alright theatre geeks! This one’s for you.
