In Memory of Our Previous Abode

Who of you knows, or remembers, the song "Sweet Soul Music" by the late Arthur Conley? Back in mid 2010, I'd
been toying with the idea of adapting the lyrics to suit The Beach Boys----and a holiday spent walking the cliff paths
overlooking the English Channel lent itself perfectly to such mental activity. Two long hikes and a modicum of
tweaking and there it was. Apart from the obvious names it makes reference to the many posters (and even a
handful of spammers) who graced our previous home. Those unfamiliar with the song are advised to check it out--
--otherwise what follows may well resemble the ramblings of an idiot.

Perhaps it's prudent to add that RLA in the last verse is today's DarkGothic Queen, this board's moderator. Once a major Al fan, she's since switched allegiance to Daryl Dixon and Paul "Jesus" Rovia of The Walking Dead.
