The last song you hear

Any moment that Gene Wilder died was going to feel like it came too soon. Still, I find this comforting:
As our hands clutched and he performed one last breath the music speaker, which was set to random, began to blare out one of his favorites: Ella Fitzgerald. ... She was singing “Somewhere over the Rainbow” as he was taken away.



Not everybody gets to go out while hearing one of their favorite songs.

What's the song you'd like playing in the background when you die?

My pick: "Don't Look Back in Anger" by Oasis.

Meshuggah's "Bleed." It'll put a bit of a wrench in the heartwarming story told afterwards.
