Remember Jefke aka Beje #1
You're not really dead when you are still remembered. Your physical body may be gone but your mind/spirit lives on.
Today it's exactly one year ago Jefke Budts aka Beje died. A Belgium Popcorn compadre. I knew Beje just by some E-mails but I was told he was a warm person with a great heart and always willing to help other people collecting their favorite Popcorn music.
The last years of his life he fought cancer. He was told he had beaten his desease 99% for sure and he was, as usual, very optimistic. Sadly it couldn't be 100%....
In Jefke's spirit here's the first part (of the complete 'set-list') to his cremation, saturday 2007_august_25. The order of the songs is my personal interpretation. The provider of this family requested favor, Theo Dumoulin, certainly has had an other order in mind.
02-Jim Conte - Promised land
03-Paul Bruno - A Kiss From You
04-Benny Turner - You Gonna miss me
05-Dusty Springfield - Oh No, Not My Baby
06-Del Marino - I'll Never Be The Same
07-Mr Lee - If I Knew Then
08-Walter Jackson - It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom
09-Don Carrol - Handful of friends
10-Carmen McRae - Belonging To You
11-Jerry Jackson - Blowin' In The Wind
12-Al McCarther - His True Love For You
13-David Ruffin - Action Speaks Louder Than Words
14-Kenny Gamble - You Don't Know What You Got...
15-Verdelle Smith - Piece Of The Sky
16-Tony Middleton - Drifting
17-Kenny Karen - Nature boy
18-Kenny Dana - It's Been So Long
19-Castells - Sacred
20-Ted Taylor - Close Your Eyes
Come back in a few days to get the second part.
'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
Pass to extract the file : 080821
The file is a small 45MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_august article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !
....And while you are there you might as well give a comment yourself....
A year ago towards the end of July, my ex-wife was diagnosed with breast cancer - within a week she had a mastectomy and removal of lymph nodes, 9 of the 15 were cancerous. Her cancer, on a scale 1-4 was 4, the most aggressive She then had very painful chemotherapy and radiotherapy. but a few months ago she was given the all-clear, thankfully.
You are a good man remembering Jefke's passing - let's raise a glass to Jefke and the great Popcorn Party in the sky. May his spirit live on and be remembered! Prost! Sante! Cheers!
Als Jefke hoort wat wij nu horen, dan zal Jefke nooit alleen zijn.
You never walk alone.
Jefke was een popcornlover van het aan het begin tot aan het onontkoombaar einde. Trieste dag toen hij uiteindelijk de ongelijke strijd moest verliezen.
En inderdaad " Je bent pas dood als niemand meer aan je denkt"
Bedankt om Jefke's beeld levend te houden.
