    I don't think all the videos available that feature this song are explicitly "funereal."

    He sure was a great musician!

    Here we find
    a mist the slime
    A man who could
    and it was sublime!

    All fail the test of time.
    It's always and forever only a matter of time until they do.

    Solsbury Hill
    Peter Gabriel
    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing, stretching every nerve
    Had to listen, had no choice
    I did not believe the information
    Just had to trust imagination
    My heart going boom, boom, boom
    "Son", he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home"
    To keep in silence I resigned
    My friends would think I was a nut
    Turning water into wine
    Open doors would soon be shut
    So I went from day to day
    Though my life was in a rut
    'Til I thought of what I'll say
    Which connection I should cut
    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart going boom, boom, boom
    "Hey", he…
    When illusion spin her net
    I'm never where I want to be
    And liberty she pirouette
    When I think that I am free
    Watched by empty silhouettes
    Who close their eyes but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me
    Today I don't need a replacement
    I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart going boom, boom, boom
    "Hey", I said, "you can keep my things, they've come to take me home"

    Isn't that funny? I watched the entire presentation without stopping. Nice to know that dead people can have an orgasm. I think.

    Thank you for the pointer. If you mean the "Sherlock" series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman I'm afraid that the fourth season is it, afaik. And has been for a few years.

    The BBC probably can't afford to pay the salaries of the two world class actors. So no more episodes. My guess, anyway.

    A dark moon reveals to us stars beyond number. the light beyond the darkness.
    The darkness beyond the light.

    The alterations and transformations in nature and in the lives of men brought about by time.
    In darkness we may see the light, in light we may perceive the darkness.

    All that matters is that things not be rushed nor delayed, that everything happens at the right time.

    I avoid all things Trumpish. Thanks for this addition to the mountain of crime perpetrated by himself and the Trumpees whereupon that thing that annoys the entire thinking world comes off as a liar. For the 10,000th and first time.
