What are some songs about death?
I plan on composing a hub on songs about death. I already have a few in mind, but I thought I would see if anyone was aware of any songs about death that they would like to share.
Don't Fear the Reaper, The World I Know, Youth of the Nation, One Sweet Day, Ready to Fall, and the list goes on.
A favorite of mine, because it is optimistic, is Kenny Rogers, The Gambler. Another is Meatloaf's "Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are."
Sing us a happy tune, Spartacus!
Showing my age. "When I Die, Let Me Go Naturally". by Blood, Sweat and Tears. The lyrics are brilliant.
I was just going to say that. Actually that song was written by Laura Nyro and first recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary.
The Nyro version of the song was the one that made my list.
"Rip Out the Wings of a Butterfly" by HIM has interesting lyrics. They're a Finnish goth band so you can infer death from a lot of their songs.
The lines that come to my mind are...........
Baby join me in death
Baby join me in death
Baby join me in death
We are so young
our lives have just begun
These are the lines of one of my favourite death songs.
"Knockin' on Heaven's Door" Bob Dylan
"The Show Must Go On" Queen
"Fade to Black" Metallica
"Tears in Heaven" Eric Clapton
"Candle in the Wind" Elton John
Pretty much anything by Alice in Chains, much of Nirvana's catalog. A marginally known band from the 90s called For Squirrels had some songs about death which were eerily prophetic including their one well known hit. One could argue that I Don't Live Today by Jimi Hendrix refers to death.
I've written a hub which covers songs which were prophetic for the manner in which the singers died, but if the topic is songs about death only, you'll have a lot more material to cover.
I will like to thank everyone for their suggestions and input. I just completed the hub.
