Once myself and a few friends were nearly killed by a truck heading right for us at a traffic light. The song playing on the radio was Weird Al's "All About the Pentiums." I'm so glad I didn't die then.
I think an appropriate closer to my life would be M83's "Gone."
Ooh! That's a hard one cuz I have so many of them.....let's see........End of the World by Dead by Sundown, Blaze of Glory by BON JOVI, or "Loving You Today" by Tom Torvijs...yeah..those are my choices.
I've left instructions to play "Who KNows Where The Time Goes" sung by Sandy Denny with Fairport Convention at my funeral.
It's a beautiful song! Here's the lyrics:
Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving But how can they know it's time for them to go? Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming I have no thought of time For who knows where the time goes? Who knows where the time goes? Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving I do not count the time For who knows where the time goes? Who knows where the time goes? And I am not alone while my love is near me I know it will be so until it's time to go So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again I have no fear of time For who knows how my love grows? And who knows where the time goes?
Confusion in her eyes that says it all. She's lost control. And she's clinging to the nearest passer by, She's lost control. And she gave away the secrets of her past, And said I've lost control again, And a voice that told her when and where to act, She said I've lost control again.
And she turned to me and took me by the hand and said, I've lost control again. And how I'll never know just why or understand, She said I've lost control again. And she screamed out kicking on her side and said, I've lost control again. And seized up on the floor, I thought she'd die. She said I've lost control. She's lost control again. She's lost control. She's lost control again. She's lost control.
Well I had to 'phone her friend to state my case, And say she's lost control again. And she showed up all the errors and mistakes, And said I've lost control again. But she expressed herself in many different ways, Until she lost control again. And walked upon the edge of no escape, And laughed I've lost control. She's lost control again. She's lost control. She's lost control again. She's lost control.
"they are waiting to take us into the severed garden you know how pale and wanton, thrillful comes death in the strange hour unannounced, unplanned for like a scary over-friendly guest you've brought to bed death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens' claws"
Off the back of Chris A's topic on poetry (Favourite line/s from a poem) I was curious as to what your favourite passages from plays are! Personally, I love this passage from Othello:Iago: O, beware, my...
