Final Song Of Your Life

Postby Jwalk0 » Sat Jun 19, 2010 1:53 am

I was just watching Pineapple Express for the 26th time and then this question hit me.........if you were given the chance, what one song would you absolutely need to listen to in your final moments?

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - Crossroads
"Someday humankind will come to understand one another! I sincerely believe that!" Fei Fong Wong
"We live to make the impossible possible! That is our Focus!" Claire 'Lightning' Farron
"Believe in yourself, and create your own destiny. Don't fear failure." Toonami

The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way.

Time Marches On - Tracy Lawrence

I know it sounds odd, but it's the first song I ever learned, and is the earliest song I remember as a child. It's also been the funeral song for a lot of men in my family. It's also one of the few country songs that really touches my heart.

I should give these songs a listen in my spare time, and since we're sharing the reasons I guess I should to.

Throughout my life and I can say the same for anyone my age, I've lost many friends and family members who left permanent marks on my life. After they departed I felt parts of me going along with them but something else in place of them. This song details the artists' departed friends and family members who meant a lot to them and this song is extremely fitting in everything to describe how precious loved ones can be, even though their lyrics were personal anyone can relate and the instruments truly made the song more emotional.

If I was given the chance, put this on blast with my wife (hopefully current GF), kids, mother, stepfather, biological father, brothers, sisters, grandmother if she's still alive, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends (online friends too if possible) all around me. Let them know that even though you'll never see me again in this life, I'll see you in the next where we can live eternally.

Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere

Lyrics wrote:Did you imagine the final sound as a gun?
Or the smashing windscreen of a car?
Did you ever imagine the last thing you'd hear as you're fading out was a song?

I mean come on, wouldn't that be awesome? And given the length/range of this song, I'd certainly not object - it covers a lot of what I love about music in its 13-minute run.

Aside from that, I've always pointed to Robert Fripp's soundscapes as "music I would like to die to". No point in trying to pin down "songs" in that type of music, but possibly something from November Suite would be the narrower choice there.

Bob Dylan - One More Cup Of Coffee

I stole this answer from someone on the BCP forums but I think it really fits death and funeral and stuff too well, I couldn't think of something that would calm me down more.
