This weekend, we're remembering musicians that passed on to the great beyond in November. Take a gander at a few of those who made their mark on the world of music.

5. "Southern Nights" - Allen Toussaint. Although Glen Campbell had the big hit with this...and it's a good version...I think I prefer Mr. Toussaint's slow, wistful, even dream version of the song he wrote. Allen Toussaint died on November 10, 2015.

4. "My Sweet Lord" - George Harrison. The former Beatle found himself in hot legal water when it was determined that he plagiarized "He's So Fine" for his ode to Hare Krishna. George died on Movember 29, 2001

3. "The Devil Inside" - INXS. No, the band didn't die...they're still going strong...but it's charismatic lead singer, Michael Hutchence died of autoerotic asphyxiation on November  22, 1997

2. "Cum On Feel The Noise" - Quiet Riot. Screamin' Kevin Dubrow made this a big hit for the L.A. area band back in the late 70's and early 80's. He died on November 19, 2007.

1. "Bohemian Rhapsody" - Queen. Now that there's a biopic out for this band and the flamboyant singer, Freddie Mercury, it's a good time to remember one of the best talents of the era. Freddie died on November 24, 1991.
