"Who knows what song will run through your head when you're dying?"

A question and an answer from a movie.

Bloody hell. I'm going to die to Boney M.

Ha Ha! Thanks for this...Of all the Althouses, you're my favorite! And my 2nd favorite Meade, too!

As I say in the other comment section, I'm probably hearing "Surfer Bird" at the instant I Buy The Big One.

"Don't Worry, Be Happy" Bobby McFerrin

Van Morrison's "Cleaning Windows"

Ron said...

Oooo...People would LIKE to hear "The End"...but they'll probably hear that Avatar of Death, Clare Pellar asking "Where's The Beef?"

William T. Sherman said...

I don't care as long as its not "Stuck in the Middle With You".

Either that or Ninety Nine Bottle Of Beer On The Wall.

Paul Simon's "Slip Sldin' Away".

Really.

The obvious choice is, "Goodnight Irene."

But what will be running in my head will be "Norwegian Wood."

LarryTheOlder said...

If it happens in the next few days, it will probably be "Lola" by The Kinks. RIP Pete. Your bass line was superb!

I think it all comes down to either side of the divide between two songs, My Way or Is that all there is?

I know what you must be saying to yourselvess
If that's the way she feels about it
Then why doesn't she just end it all
Oh no. not me. i'm not ready for the final disappointment
Cause i know just as well as i'm standing here talking to you
That when that final moment comes
And i'm breathing my last breath
I know what i'll be saying to myself
Is that all there is?

Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

Pop That Coochie.

Dorsey Gillman said...

Peggy Lee
"Is That All There Is"

traditionalguy said...

The Fixing to Die Blues sung on Bob's first album says it all.

Methadras said...

I want it to be some epic underscore. I'll have to find one and approve it.

Palladian said...

Muskrat Love. And, like in the video, the muskrats will appear to you...

To paraphrase Eugene O'Neill's last words:

"I knew it. I knew it. Conceived to Muskrat Love, and God damn it, died to Muskrat Love."

"Van Morrison's "Cleaning Windows""


One of my all time favorite songs. I would be quite content to go out to it.

Enjoyed all the comments.

I want to die in my sleep.

t-man/wurly/henry buck said...

For all of my sins, it will probably be "Seasons in the Sun."

Carry On Wayward Son

"Don't Fear the Reaper." Ridiculous as it is to admit, that adolescent-suicide-pact song makes me feel fearless.
