TRIBUTES TO SIMON
You've Crossed Over, a Song for Simon by Laz SlomovitsAs Simon's death approached, Laz Slomovits (one half of the Ann Arbor-based duo Gemini) began to compose a song for Simon. We had long hoped that musician friends would write songs about Simon, and Laz found his muse in Simon's death. During August, Laz told us he was nearing completion of the song, which captures so well the yearning we feel for Simon along with feelings of gratitude for his wonderful presence among us. Laz made a demo tape of the song, which we played during Simon's memorial service on August 28, 2004.
You've Crossed Over
Ooh, your memory is still shining bright.
Ooh, your sweetness, your joy, your smile.
Who knows what you would have done had you stayed?
