You Could Be Born Again

A week ago (news travels slowly), Chris Dedrick, leader of Free Design, my all-time favorite family band (take THAT Jackson 5, The Carpenters, and Bee Gees), died of cancer at the age of 62.

Longtime blog readers will know that I used to have a segment called Free Design Fridays, wherein I introduced a song by the band and gently poked fun at it, but in a loving way. No one does saccharine pop better than Free Design, and no song of theirs tops Kites Are Fun. (It's dorky, but download it and you'll never make a summer mix without it again.)

But in this special Free Design Friday: In Memorial, I'm choosing a song that has to do with reincarnation, "You Could Be Born Again." Actually, I'm pretty sure that the song is about born-again Christianity as the band was want to do, but I'm going to pretend it's about reincarnation, since if anyone deserves a second chance at life and songwriting, it is Dedrick.

May the angels sing Free Design songs in heaven, Dedrick.
