With it being almost a month since the passing of the great Gordie Howe, it would be a suitable time to unveil my tribute to him.
So, I present to you “Mr. Hockey”, a song about the legendary number 9. A song that begins with a cold, toneless woman repeating quotes from Gordie, as well as many great minds speaking about him. In the background, a sorrowing piano introduces the music, and as the strings, guitar, bass, and drums enter, the song progressively gets louder and heavier, keeping you on the edge of your seat until it grinds to a halt.
So, rest in peace, Mr. Hockey.
