Odes To Death

Nope, not the metal genre, just good 'ol death. Get depressed.
1 In Mind
Do Make Say Think


"When you die, you have to leave them behind, you should keep that in mind." Sometimes the obvious can be unexpectedly profound. That's the case with me and this closer, DMST doesn't speak often but when they do be assured it's worth listening to.
2 As Long As I Can See the Light
Creedence Clearwater Revival


This song reminds me of my mother. The keyboard for this track could not have been better suited to John's voice. Uplifting.
3 Jesus Christ
Brand New


Just listen to the track, self-explanatory.
4 Father & Son
Cat Stevens


More so about life, but you can't ignore the presence of mortality in Cat's dialogue between the father and son. Talk about songwriting, phew.
5 Pink Moon
Nick Drake


Gonna getcha all. When Nick's voice goes into the almost growling lower register just before the piano lick it's just soo haunting.
6 Do You Realize??
The Flaming Lips


"The sun doesn't go down, it's just an illusion caused by the sun spinning round." Typical Wayne, insightful and mad deep mang.
7 Work Lies Sex Love Fear Hate Friendship
Gatsby's American Dream


"In fifty year you'll be in the ground." Damn, now that's a statement to end a song on. Gatsby's is in fine form on this track about industrialism, futility, and death.
8 Time
Pink Floyd


Does time exist without an expiration date? Floyd's classic is as great musically as it is lyrically. Gilmour shines in every way on this.
9 Colors
Portugal. The Man


"I'm not afraid to die, 'cause all these colors will change." Will they? Wtf are colors anyway?
10 '59 Sound
The Gaslight Anthem


Not bad for a pop song eh? ...Yes, I'm Canadian.
11 Serenity Painted Death
Opeth


Was pleased to see this live last summer. ..."The Horror! The Horror!"
