In 1995, Sophie B. Hawkins sang a wistful ballad in memory of her father. “As I Lay Me Down” went on to top the Adult Contemporary charts for six weeks. Hawkins was subsequently honored by GLAAD in 2000.

In a shameless attempt to fill space on a holiday weekend :-) we are posting this music video in memory of loved ones.
