I learned today that Patricia Neal passed away at 84 due to lung cancer. I remember her fondly as 2-E (Mrs. Failenson) in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This woman had a strong screen presence further fuelled by her husky voice. More of the story here: http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-patricia-neal-20100810,0,5106158.story?page=1
I could not think of a better song to dedicate to her passing than this song by the Scottish group Capercaillie. Tighinn Air A’mhuir Am Fear A Phosas Mi is taken from their album Nàdurra.
