The Lyrics

DKTOS (Don't Know The Original Song)? It's on YouTube.
Woah, oh, oh, oh
Pour the strongest wine
Woah, oh, oh
Pour the strongest

Twenty-sixteen, why'd it have to be
We would lose such great celebrities
It's so bizarro
I need to drown my sorrow
I need a flagon of the strongest wine

Patty Duke, Ron Glass, and Harper Lee
Leon Russell, Prince, and Bobby Vee
Joe Garagiola
And no kidding, Abe Vigoda
I need a bucket of the strongest wine

Woah, oh, oh, oh
Pour the strongest wine
Woah, oh, oh
Pour the strongest

David Bowie and Pat Harrington
Alan Rickman, Florence Henderson
Muhammed Ali
The voice of Joe Alaskey
I need a barrel of the strongest wine

Maybe I am taking this wrong
There could be a plan
In place all along
Maybe they all joined in a pact
They're all coming back
As celebrity zombies

Garry Shandling and George Kennedy
Garry Marshall and Dan Haggerty
And Leonard Cohen
Robert Vaughn and John McLaughlin
I need a truckload of the strongest wine

Has there ever been such a year
Where star after star
Just all disappear
Maybe we should hold our blessings near
And hang on to good cheer
'Cause we've still got Bill Shatner

Anton Yelchin left us much too soon
And Gene Wilder, no one is immune
And Morley Safer
Merle Haggard, Kenny Baker
I intend to drink all of the strongest wine

Woah, oh, oh
Pour the strongest wine
Woah, oh, oh
Don't forget Glenn Frey
Woah, oh, oh
Pour the strongest wine
Woah, oh, oh

Very good vehicle for a very good tribute. Unfortunately, you could not get them all in; from my perspective, the most significant omissions were Arnold Palmer and Nancy Reagan.

555 glasses of The Strongest Wine. I don't drink however, so no alcohol to ease the pain for me! also, 2014 was pretty bad too, I was pretty saddened when we lost Robin Williams, Casey Kasem & Kevin Sharp that year.

I was sad that actors George Kennedy (Airport series, Earthquake, Naked Gun series) and Fritz Weaver (Twilight Zone, Holocaust, and Fail Safe) died-555 memories. Btw Jon, since you've mentioned that you don't drink so many times, is it a religious thing? I ask because drinking isn't a sin, just being drunk. Jesus drank wine and said He would have more in heaven. I can just see you and I telling Jesus to break out the eggnog and that it better be Southern Comfort!!! As for soda, Jon will take Diet Pepsi, but I want my Diet Coke with aspartame!!!

Excellent work Rex---you've deftly highlighted the amazing amount of talent seen in but a single year's 'In Memoriam' reel.

The creators of the Big Mac and General Tso's Chicken both expired this month at the ages of 90+. Wonder if they abstained from their own creations. Perhaps that was the secret of their longevity.

Thanks everyone! John, I agree that I had to leave off too many names - only about a third of my list made it into the parody. Maybe I should have parodied "We Didn't Start The Fire". ;-)

^^^ Nope, Rob. it just never appealed to me. same with smoking & doing drugs. I have my junk food vice to worry about! :P and yes, you're absolutely right! there had better be Southern Comfort eggnog in Heaven! :)
