Apparently, neverknowing runs in the family! From one of my brothers:

I kind of enjoyed listening to a song by the Critters titled “Mystifyingly
Sad” a  couple of decades ago.  I even hummed along with it from time to
time.  Today’s paper has an obit for the lead singer, Don Ciccone, and
refers to the group’s hit, “Mr. Dieingly Sad.”  Who knew!

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
