My favorite song from ''Elegies for Angels ...'' is ''My Brother Lived in San Francisco'' by Janet Hood and Bill Russell.
But another poignant AIDS story song, also inspired by the City by the Bay, is Tom Andersen's ''Yard Sale.''
In an interview with Talkin' Broadway, Tom says: ''It was inspired by a nextdoor neighbor of mine in S.F. who had a sale of all his belongings. This was during the '80s, when AIDS came crashing down on all of us. I felt helpless, like everyone else, so I wrote "Yard Sale" as a catharsis. David Campbell recorded it beautifully and helped get it out there, and I'm so moved that it has touched so many people.''
Here's Tom singing his award-winning ''Yard Sale,'' accompanied by Seth Rudetsky, at a Broadway Cares benefit.
