And now an explanation for my picks with likely reasons for their demise, several singers this time so here are also examples of their songs and dedications to the non singers:


Singers/Actors

Shannen Doherty
Actress, Born: April 12, 1971 (age 46) Breast cancer.
Little known singing effort:
Stop
Not surprisingly, she remained an actress.

Olivia Newton-John
Singer, Actress. Cancer too.
Everyone knows better song examples but after seeing whispers of the heart, I will remember Olivia more for
Country Road.

Artie Lange
Comedian, Actor. Alcohol, drugs and many more.
Artie Lange's Cheers Parody, Queers, Where everybody knows you’re gay..
(Some NSFW words)

Leah Bracknell
Actress, terminal lung cancer
No songs, but a lot of Hindu music in her
Yoga For Life

Linda Nolan
Singer, Actress. Cancer
The Nolans - I'm In the Mood for Dancing

Jessica Falkholt
Australian actress, in a comma after an ugly car crash.
Haunting music in the 2018 trailer for the movie Harmony. What was supposed to be Jessica Flakholt first major starring role.
HARMONY TRAILER [2018]

Stefán Karl Stefánsson
Icelandic actor, best known for playing the villain Robbie Rotten on the children's television series LazyTown. Cancer.
Became more famous for singing Yar! You are a pirate! One of the best kid show songs, and an internet meme.
Lazy Town | You Are A Pirate!
Know your meme:
http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/you-are-a-pirate


Wrestlers

Kamala
James Harris (born May 28, 1950) is a former American professional wrestler and author. Diabetes with no treatment, by his choice, leads to going in and out of life support now.
The Kamala theme, what else?

Ric Flair
American professional wrestling manager and retired professional wrestler. Alcoholic cardiomyopathy.
Thus spak the Ric theme:
WOOOOOO!!!

Matthew Lee Cappotelli
American former professional wrestler. Malignant brain tumor.
Not specifically for him, but here is the WWE Tough Enough theme.
WWE: Tough Enough 2015 Theme Song - "Make or Break" by. CFO$


Sports:

Fernando Ricksen
Soccer player, Motor Neurone Disease.
Goals appropriately to the tune of “The Final Countdown”

Marieke Vervoort
Paralimpic Athlete, Degenerative disease
Last wish, Short bio video from The Daily Fail Mail.


The ‘Needs Killing’ Department:

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
Terrorist Emir, most likely to lose in the game of Drones.
Die Young, OK?

Kesha song, not Abu, nor Kesha there but animation from one of my favorite web comic creators: Vivziepop.

And as usual: It is your life everybody! Embrace yours!

Bon Jovi - It's My Life



Dedicated to my father, who is not likely to make it after this month..

Reverend Billy Graham - who I thought would be a sure-thing in 2017. He's still good for 1 point until November 2018.

On your list of picks, I notice that a couple of mine appear twice because I posted the names without the titles but another player included the titles. This would move (Emperor) Akihito and (Ayatollah) Ali Khamenei into the 2 picks group. Not that it makes a big diff – they are on my list so they will survive the next 362 days at least.

The word 'technically' is doing some heavy lifting there!

I accept these awards on behalf of all the little people that assisted me in my ascension to the top. Especially those I'm standing on top of right now.

Damn. I was this close to going with a "Celebrities whose names are slightly misspelled weather phenomena" theme.

Re: phungi's stats - everyone should hope I do well. If I do well, chances are you'll do well. The majority of my picks are in the top three or four categories.

They're going to have to rewrite that line in the song "I Believe" from "The Book of Mormon".

Also:

Dick Cheney (5 picks) and Richard Cheney (1 pick) are (I assume) the same person.

"Tome" Sizemore is Tom Sizemore, so those single picks should be combined into one "two-timer".

Qwami Wallen (1 pick) should be combined with Quincy Jones (2 picks) - - unless, of course, one of those who submitted "Quincy Jones" meant the producer born in 1933, as opposed to the comedian who debuted on the world stage in 1984.

Former New Jersey Governor Brendan Byrne once said that when he died he wanted to be buried in Hudson County so he could remain active in politics. He now gets the chance.

Anyone familiar with the history of NJ politics will get the joke.

Here are some duplicates:
  • Leon White and Big Van Vader (same person)
  • Catherin Nevin vs. Catherine Nevin
  • Mark E Smith vs. Mark Edward Smith
  • Stephen Bannon vs. Steve Bannon
  • Stephen Hawking vs. Steven Hawking

Also, James Buldger should probably be James Bulger, or really Whitey Bulger. Emporess Michiko should be Empress Michiko, or just Michiko (to match whichever way you went with Akihito).

He was one of the 12 who did. And now only five are left: Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean, David Scott, Charlie Duke, and Harrison Schmitt.

I once had an astronaut/cosmonaut theme. Folks who had landed on the moon, or had first achievements, like first woman in space, first EVA.

Missed opportunities indeed.
