September 2019 Songs of the Day

We're looking for a few good contributors - 30 or so. The rules are simple -- you rec a song, and you rate other people's songs. All are welcome, even if you haven't participated in previous months. The theme for September is SONGS OF DEATH. They can be sad songs, tragic songs, even funny songs, somehow related to death. Murder, suicide, natural causes, or even getting randomly hit by a flying lawn mower. Please list the artist, the song and the link for where people can go to hear it. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yo9Aj7t1IZwG41xFgX9kzIugIsVckENq5RnQace1WDw/edit#gid=1538611098

September 1 - Divaman
"Burning Hearts"

The most cheerful-sounding song about the A-bomb you'll ever find.

"Dear Death Part 2"

This song is more of death in a metaphorical sense (but could be viewed as literal death) but it is a pretty powerful song off of the band’s best album.. and what a closer it is.

"To Die in Your Dream"

An oddly magical dungeon synth track with a very descriptive song title. If you would like to really "feel it" I highly recommend to listen to it at late night.

"Floating Away in Every Direction"

Recommend headphones for this one. The entire album is about passing away, and manages to make the entire business seem peaceful.

"All a Man Can Do"

It's the conclusion of a concept album in which (spoiler) the protagonist dies at the end of the song. Gives me chills every time and I do believe the song stands on its own right.

"Try Not to Breathe"

Bit pedestrian but when it comes to themes of mortality, grief and the brief flittering of life while remaining resolute and uplifting this one really hits the spot.

"Bogatyri"

I'm not usually one for long songs anymore, and while I do love post-rock it fails to capture my imagination like it used to, but I find myself always coming back to this record. The central theme around this album is the death of heroes, and this particular track is in honor to the three men who opened the flood gates of the Chernobyl reactor to prevent greater catastrophe.

"Jaguar God"

This song fits perfectly to the month's theme, a fantastic closer track: the story of the desert wanderer (in the album) is inspired by experiences of the band members when their relatives faced with cancer. And this song is about the end of the journey: death.

"White Wine"

also, apologies for the punctuation errors, sputnik on mobile is still a bit buggy. but yeah, it's a catchy and memorable, yet menacingly grim, lofi cloud-rap anthem. plus bonus points to the idea of "white wine" actually being a metaphor for cocaine addiction, and the Amy Winehouse painting in the music video paired with an incredibly utilized sample from The Microphones all giving so much more depth to a song/video that's seemingly so simple.
