Tosh doesn’t believe in talking about death. He doesn’t believe in filling in forms, even if it will net him an extra £100 per week under the ‘special conditions’ of having less than six months to live. Tosh believes in singing. He charms the social worker, serenades the hairdresser, and persuades 94-year-old Betty to duet with him. “That’s the best thing that ever happened to me,” he says, “a medal for singing, when I was 13.”
Here's a clip with Tosh from Seven Songs for a Long Life:
