Laura Branigan Is Dead At 47




Wait a minute. Why doesn’t this appear on the news sites, or on a web search?

I did Google News search and it did turn up. Here’s the story from The Miami Herald. And the AP story from the Gazette in Charleston, West Virginia.


You take my self, you take my self control
I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven’t got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow
so I guess I’ll just believe it
that tomorrow never comes
A safe night, I’m living in the forest of my dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something
so I’ll make myself believe it
that this night will never go
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh.

:frowning: Farewell Laura.

Man, she wasn’t around for long–professionally–but she sure as hell made her mark.

Bummer. Seriously. A bad piece of news to cap a suck day. :frowning:

RIP Laura, thanks for some great tunes.

That sucks- I really loved her music back in the 80’s. At least she went peacefully.

Sic transit Gloria…Gloria…I think I got your number…

I’m not sure how many people are aware that she appeared Off-Broadway in “Love, Janis”, the story of Janis Joplin’s life and apparently she NAILED the part. She will definitely be missed.
