So the situation is following, you have last 60 minutes of your life and you are able to pick songs that will play during that time. List songs you would play and enjoy for the last time. Please take track of your time, who would like to die mid song (unless there is some kind of climax).

Here is my list:
Europe - The Final Countdown 5:14
The Eagles - Hotel California 6:30
Freddie Mercury - Luving On My Own 5:20
Chopin Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2 4:42
Queen - The Show Must Go On 4:23
Scorpions - Holiday 6:09
The Beatles - When I'm Sixty-Four 2:38
The Beatles - Yesterday 2:02
Yann Tiersen - Comptine d'un autre été - L'après midi 2:26
Pink Floyd - Hey You 4:40
Evanescence - My Immortal 4:38
Pink Floyd - One of the Few 1:13
Aerosmith - Dream on 4:24
Pink Floyd - Goodbye Blue Sky 2:47
Pink Floyd - Goodbye Cruel World 1:14
Anathema - Shroud of False 1:37

Total playtime 59:47

Mostly new age music for me, merlin89. I especially like the soft sounds of Hearts of Space (hos.com), the sounds of film composer Mark Isham, and also the French composers that I play on the piano all the time: Debussy, Ravel, and Chabrier.

I especially like a little Chabrier number called Idylle because it just BARELY exceeds my technical skill.

I would not expect to die precisely at the end of any one piece of music, Merlin, but would imagine myself fading away with the night. Does this answer your question?

Start off with some power.


Something existentialist.


Something soothing.


Something sexy.


And the kicker, just let my life slip away during this tune.


I had a couple more but only allowed to post 5. So I guess I'll just listen to A Change of Seasons twice.

-- I can't deny, I await the day I die.

I'm too lazy to calculate everything down to the second, but here's my list:

-Mozart's Lacrymosa = three minutes and twenty-one seconds

-Chopin's Nocturne Op.9 No.2 = four minutes and twenty-eight seconds

-Evanescence - Hello = three minutes and thirty-six seconds

-Evanescence - My Immortal = four minutes and thirty-three seconds

-City and Colour - Day Old Hate = six minutes and fifty seconds

-Coldplay - Fix You = four minutes and fifty-seven seconds

-Neverending White Lights - This Longing = six minutes and eleven seconds

-Neverending White Lights - The Grace = five minutes and twenty-one seconds

-Neverending White Lights - Dove Coloured Sky = four minutes and fifty-five seconds

-Tool - Wings for Marie+10,000 Days = seventeen minutes and twenty-seven seconds

It's not necessarily in the order I'd listen in, but all these songs conjure some big feelings and nostalgia for me, as they are what I listened to while going through some hard times.
