Your Final Tunes

Recommended Posts

There's a scene in the movie "Soylent Green" that always stuck in my mind...

Edward G. Robinson ("Sol Roth") elects euthanasia during the film and during the process watches an AV presentation which includes:

  • Symphony No. 6 ("Pathétique") by Tchaikovsky
  • Symphony No. 6 ("Pastoral") by Beethoven
  • "Morning Mood" and "Åse's Death" from the Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg

While his choices are a bit..refined...for my own tastes, I can appreciate the role of music during our lives and, presumably, at the end of them.

Just from the top of my head, I think I'd like:

  • "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan
  • "Who Wants To Live Forever" by Queen
  • "Fields of Gold" by Sting

What music would you like to listen to when your time has come?

"house of the rising sun" Rolling stones

or

"Gorecki" from Lamb

here's the lyrics to Gorecki:

If I should die this very moment

I wouldnt fear

For Ive never known completeness

Like being here

Wrapped in the warmth of you

Loving every breath of you

Still in my heart this moment

Or it might burst

Could we stay right here

Until the end of time until the earth stops turning

Wanna love you until the seas run dry

Ive found the one Ive waited for

All this time Ive loved you

And never known your face

All this time Ive missed you

And searched this human race

Here is true peace

Here my heart knows calm

Safe in your soul

Bathed in your sighs

Wanna stay right here

Until the end of time

til the earth stops turning

Gonna love you until the seas run dry

Ive found the one Ive waited for

The one Ive waited for

All Ive known

All Ive done

All Ive felt was leading to this

All Ive known

All Ive done

All Ive felt was leading to this

Wanna stay right here

til the end of time till the earth stops turning

Im gonna love you till the seas run dry

Ive found the one Ive waited for

The one Ive waited for

The one Ive waited for

Wanna stay right here

til the end of time till the earth stops turning

Im gonna love you till the seas run dry

Ive found the one Ive waited for

The one Ive waited for

The one Ive waited for

I want R. Stewart's "I Was Only Joking"! :tease:

or "Another One Bites the Dust"

:lol:

"Another One Bites The Dust" is the first thing that popped into my head.

"I'll Sleep When I'm Dead"

Maybe something softer closer to the end.

"Holy Water" by Big & Rich

Most of it is from Queen's "It's a Kind of Magic" CD.

"Who wants to live forever?"

How'd you know I wanted to be cremated?

Then I want my ashes spread into the hollow of a tree so when it rains my minerals will enter the soil and then into the belly of a worm and finally up the food chain and throughout the universe.
