Good. She deserves it. When Cher goes, I hope we do the same.

She previously was award the highest civilian medal/award in Australia.  Like the American Presidential Medal of Freedom but smaller and less impressive.

Oh? Did Rush Limbaugh get the Aussie one, too?

Aussies  love their heros. They don't come often but when they do they know how to do it up. I expect Barry Gibb to be on the list too.

AFAIC She was an international treasure and good for Australia for doing this.

I have breaking footage from her funeral procession and it. Is. Fabulous.

Xanadu - The Big Finale (Part 1)
Youtube 6D0sCKYABUk

Note: ONJ does not appear until 3:30, but if you skip ahead you miss the absolute last dance role ever recorded by the immortal Gene Kelly, in what everyone agrees was just... breathtaking.  Also briefly glimpsed: That Guy From The Warriors and Megaforce.  Plus I think some of the dance troupes were also gangs in The Warriors.  I may be wrong about that.

/Xanadu was brought to you by the letters C, K, O, E, and the color Neon.

Of all the celeb deaths, this is really the first one that makes me feel old despite losing Carrie Fisher and Margot Kidder, and broadcasters and writers who contributed to my education.

ON-J hit super-duper-stardom when I was still a boy, and so in my mind's eye she's always still that young, beautiful woman whose LPs I owned from my boyhood through to university, and then CDs and all that.

So much this. My crush on her started and peaked during the most wonderful time of my childhood. I already had an intense nostalgia for those times. Losing ONJ feels like another part of those days is gone, and makes me miss them even more.

I pulled up "I Honestly Love You" this morning and had to stop it half way through.

She was and always will be my favorite female singer. RIP...

That's a great song that delivers so well. She really perfected a type of material in that period, sad songs -- I Honesty Love You, The Last Time You Ever Tried, Please Mr Please, Sam, and that delivery reached perfection in Hopelessly Devoted.

This may have gotten lost in a pervious thread, but here's an interview with Mike Douglas just before super stardom. Her feet are so solidly planted on the ground.

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tucker bag
"You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me"
