Six Songs I Want To Die To (Part 1)

This does not mean they are my six favorite songs, just six songs that I'd like to die to given the appropriate situations. I will pair the songs with the cinematic like demise I imagine it being a soundtrack to.

1.) We've been traveling together for days now, getting closer to the destination. I'm the only one who can stop this evil, but to do so I must sacrifice myself. She knows this.

I'm sick of the redundant pleading, and put a finger to her mouth to interrupt with, "Give me some sugar baby". She complies. I let out a "groovy" and start walking down the final, desolate road when...

Axis Bold As Love kicks on (2:48-4:13)...


2.) My mansion sits alone on top of the tallest hill and overlooks the city. I've escaped here to get away from all the bullshit of the entertainment business. My family did not follow. The media has made me into a drunk, opiate eating, mad man, genius...which I am. I drunkenly quote Shakespeare aloud as the sensation from taking all that heroin put me in a painful euphoria. I think I took too much. As I stumble around wondering if my demise is near...

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata lingers...

  15. Yea i could die to Moonlight Sonata.

  16. I find most performances of Moonlight Sonata are overplayed and so the player needs to create the feeling of the piece artificially and it comes through with a strange shaping of the piece. I liked this one though, he does each voice justice.

  25. The coupling of the song and situation dictate the appropriateness.
