Has anyone mentioned
Candle in the Wind yet?
Especially the version done for Diana's funeral. What was already a excess of wallowing on a national scale was cranked up to weepy saccarine overload by such trite lyrics as

Goodbye England's Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts.
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart.
You called out to our country,
And you whispered to those in pain.
Now you belong to heaven,
And the stars spell out your name.

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind:
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in.
And your footsteps will always fall here,
Along England's greenest hills;
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever will.

Loveliness we've lost;
These empty days without your smile.
This torch we'll always carry
For our nation's golden child.
And even though we try,
The truth brings us to tears;
All our words cannot express
The joy you brought us through the years.

Goodbye England's Rose,
From a country lost without your soul,
Who'll miss the wings of your compassion
More than you'll ever know.

What utter twaddle. Sorry, I'm going to have to go off and throw up now.
Edit/ I must confess my friends and I found the whole affair rather entertaining; we even wrote a hollywood a-list cast list for the Charles/Diana/Dodi biopic, and for my birthday in September that year a friend gave me a fab Diana t-shirt with a really cheap decal of her on the front - one of those ones that cracks the first time you wear it and then slowly flakes off over the years before the last remnants turn sticky and glue the whole t-shirt together - with roses around the picture and flowing script saying 'Diana, born a princess, died a saint'. I love it but I'm never allowed to wear it in public in case either someone thinks I'm being serious, or even worse realises I'm not and has a go at me for not respecting the memory of our beloved Princess of Hearts :D
