Lines on the Death of Demis Roussos

Posted in Music with tags , on January 26, 2015 by telescoper

After all the sound and fury accompanying yesterday elections in Greece there’s one item of much sadder news. The legendary Demis Roussos has passed away. I can’t think of him without thinking of Abigail’s Party:


So, farewell then,
Demis Roussos.

“For ever
And ever
And ever
And ever
The One!”

You sang.

But, alas,
For ever
And ever
And ever
And ever.
And now
You’ve Gone.

But at least
Alison Steadman
liked you.

(And so did
Keith’s Mum.)
