Adieu Rod

I just finished doing a review for my series Sundae with Nuts and was researching the lyricist/poet Rod Mckuen.  I had greatly underestimated McKuen, who died less than 2 months ago at the age of 82.  He was much younger when I first became familiar with him.  It was in 1974 when his translation of a French work was made into a worldwide hit song.  You may find the review linked in Sundae with Nuts (linked above), and in Forest Primeval.

I found a couple of versions on YouTube.  Some had much greater production value.  I chose this one because it comes closer to the original.
