5 on Friday - Set 84

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

This week's set is dedicated to Andy Whitfield, who passed away on Sept. 11th.

He was a newly-discovered favorite actor of mine, ever since the debut of Spartacus in 2010. You can read my review of the show here: Through the Opera Glasses.

So hard to believe that cancer could strike down someone who could not have been in better shape.

I guess we should all simply enjoy today for today.

1 - Princes of the Universe - Queen

2 - Spartacus - Wotan

3 - The Warrior - Patty Smyth

4 - Courage - The Tragically Hip

5 - Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd

That's just so sad but I guess it's true that cancer is an equal opportunity disease. Sadly so.

Excellent choice of songs.

I just couldn't believe someone so fit could be struck down like that - so very sad. Nice tribute to a wonderful actor Julia.

Very unfortunate. I didn't watch the show, but I heard nothing but good things about Mr Whitfield.

Thanks for the Patty Smyth. Hadn't heard that tune in ages.

This is so sad. He was just getting started in his career. Truly tragic.
