Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas

Carry on my wayward son

There'll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Don't you cry no more

Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode

I dont want to start any blasphemous rumours

But I think that gods got a sick sense of humor

And when I die I expect to find him laughing

Do You Realize? - The Flaming Lips

Do you realize

That everyone you know someday will die?

And instead of saying all of your good-byes

Let them know you realize that life goes fast

It's hard to make the good things last

You realize the sun doesn't go down

It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin

People Who Died - Jim Carroll

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?

Rusty Cage by SoundGarden

Higher by Creed

and (so obvious)

How Far Is Heaven by Los Lonely Boys :beach:

Edward G. Robinson had the right idea, I think. However, my choices would be a bit more dramatic:

Richard Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries and Entrance of the Gods into Valhalla

Although, rev.daniel's suggestion, Don't Fear the Reaper, would be nice as a prelude.

That's cool...I was originally going to put down "God's of War" by Manowar...the whole album actually...but the uber classical stuff rules too :) I went with the songs I put in my will, but I have been feeling very Norse lately and reading a lot anglo saxon stuff :)

I guess I'm in the right crowd.

Who Wants to Live Forever? is one I would like.

Lament For the Dead is a very old song that used to be played on the bagpipes. ( it's almost impossible to find now, but I have a copy played on two flutes)

Amazing Mist, was the original song before Amazing Grace.

I would like to have the Grateful Dead playing as I give up life on Earth, and at my funeral as well I think

"So Many Roads", "The Wheel", "The only time is now", "The music never stopped", and "To lay me down" would be good ones I think among others
