She’s A Wake – Take That & Elton John Play Princess Diana

It was at Diana’s funeral that Elton’s career was given a new lease of life. His song about a dead Marilyn Monroe was tweaked to become a song about a dead Princess Diana. Elton had become the face of funeral music.

And now, as the Mirror’s front page says (“TAKE THAT PLAY FOR DIANA”), others hope Diana can work her magic on their careers.

News is that Take That are a headline act at this summer’s concert in memory of the Princess of Hearts. This is the concert being put together by impresarios Prince Harry and Prince William.

As Prince William says: “A church service wasn’t enough. We wanted this big concert full of energy – full of fun and happiness. And on her birthday as well. It has to be the best birthday present ever.”

What more wholesome and fun time than to gaze upon the sights and sounds of 100,000 Diana fans singing “Happy birthday, dear Diana” in harmony?

And we urge the acts to do their best, and to adapt their songs to the occasion. If it worked for Elton, it can work for you.

The line up should go something like this:
Duran Duran – Diana: “Her name Is Diana and she dances at Annabelle’s”
Take That – Relight My Diana
Andrew Lloyd Webber – Princess Diana Superstar
Bryan Ferry – Let’s Stick Diana

And many more…
