  • Why? (The King of Love Is Dead) by Nina Simone :
    "But he had seen the mountaintop
    And he knew he could not stop
    Always living with the threat of death ahead
    Folks you'd better stop and think
    Everybody knows we're on the brink
    What will happen, now that the King of love is dead?"
