Romanthony: The Ministry Of Love
“Love is a four letter word, perhaps the most cruial one of all
It seems whenever it’s heard it causes one to rise or fall
Even knowledge of love makes you realize you know nothing
You see there’s no control of the need to be a part of something
A part of history so diverse and complex
Turning failure to glory from one generation to the next”
R.I.P. Roman. You will be missed.
Millions know the name Romanthony because of Daft Punk, but he was really so much more. Remembering the artist and remembering the man: Throughout an exhausting night, searching for confirmation of a fact I didn’t want to be true (but secretly feared it was), I kept coming across those songs. The Wall of YouTube Videos that creates itself upon the death of any artist of note is the ritual of our time, like ship burials and Irish wakes.
R.I.P. Romanthony. Listen and unsterstand!
