Papa Bear
In our final “Music and Mortality” session of the year, we’re sending you off with a song from Papa Bear of Papa Bear and the Easy Love fame.

It’s a song written with his friend, Lisa Donnelly, and its meaning and significance has changed over time. Watch below for the full story and a performance of the song.

For the last few weeks, we’ve been rolling out our “Music and Mortality” video series, a partnership with arts organization You’re Going To Die. Watch our other two entries with Chelsea Coleman and John Elliott.

If you or someone you know is struggling with their mental health, consult the National Alliance on Mental Illness for resources and support.

Music and Mortality is produced in conjunction with local arts nonprofit You’re Going To Die. See more in the series here, and find out more about YG2D.
