Videos I Love: ‘Life is short. Let’s play a song’

If I have any friends left when I die, perhaps they’ll sing this for me.

I’m occasionally sharing some light thoughts on a few videos that make me smile, make me think, or preferably do both. Read more from this special series here.

The season premiere of one of my favorite TV shows, “Treme,” was recently delayed until fall 2012.

Here’s one of my favorite scenes from the heartbreaking series. A guitar player has been killed, and his friends gather to remember him in the only way they know how. If I have any friends left when I die, perhaps they’ll sing this for me.

Don’t fight back the tears.
