Thirty two is far too early. It seems its a rock n’ roll thing to die at a young age, quite often between the decade age span of 25 to 35. As far as music goes, a daunting age is 27. Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin, amongst several others, all past away age 27. This is what some pop critics call the Forever 27 Club.
On a current note, this morning, actress/model Brittany Murphy passed on to greener pastures. EMPT would like to pay respects to this beautiful PYT, and send our love and pesame to her family and loved ones.
World Party covered David Bowie’s All The Young Dudes for Clueless, in which Brittany’s role is crucial to the epicness of the film. They got the chorus sounding spot on, but their guitar sounds and verses are far from bodacious. So we stand by Bowie and his version. The lyrics of the song touch upon the subject of death at a young age, as well as evoking the parallels of being young in the city or stuck in suburbia. So with no further ado, this goes out to her. May she rest in peace and harmony. Enjoy.
