Here's the audio to my most popular YouTube video in recent months. It racking up more than a thousand views in a week. In this short clip I offer an alternative view of celebrity deaths and the widespread notion that "2016 sucked!"

I must have struck a nerve, because the view count keeps rising.

I recorded this the day after George Michael died. After that Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passed away. Add them to a long list of icons that includes David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Muhammad Ali, George Martin, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Garry Shandling, John Glenn, Florence Henderson, Glenn Frey, and more.

There are many ways to respond to all that happened in 2016. Take a few minutes to listen to this for a different perspective
