    If that's the case, you should go with John Cage's As Slow As Possible.

    I'll go with The Grateful Dead's version of "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"

    Procession moves on, the shouting is over,
    Praise to the glory of loved ones now gone.
    Talking aloud as they sit round their tables,
    Scattering flowers washed down by the rain.
    Stood by the gate at the foot of the garden,
    Watching them pass like clouds in the sky,
    Try to cry out in the heat of the moment,
    Possessed by a fury that burns from inside.

    Cry like a child, though these years make me older,
    With children my time is so wastefully spent,
    A burden to keep, though their inner communion,
    Accept like a curse an unlucky deal.
    Played by the gate at the foot of the garden,
    My view stretches out from the fence to the wall,
    No words could explain, no actions determine,
    Just watching the trees and the leaves as they fall.

    Yeah, but as Neal sings on Place in the Sun:

    Life on the edge, it can feel so confrontational
    Now I prefer to lay it back most of the time
    Now I'm so happy just to sit and play my old guitar
    Sit back and relax
    And everything will work out fine...

    I'll just leave that there.

    No.

    For me something energetic and joyful when I go out.. 'Dog-like Sparky' by Cardiacs would fit the bill.

    The last thing I want to listen to before I die is the new studio album by the reformed Genesis with Gabriel and Hackett.

    Phil, Tony, and Mike - would be pissed if they were left out.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I was thinking that we'll all be dead before that happens.

    Probably "Cinema Show" by Genesis. My favorite tune overall, by anyone. Can't think of anything I'd rather hear one last time.

    After a bit of thought, ( and while listening to music while lawn mowing revelation )
    Good Dog Happy Man - Bill Frissell the whole album but a couple of favorites:
    Shenandoah – for Johnny Smith (Traditional)
    That Was Then

    This album makes me peacefully happy, it tingles my brain.

    I posted "Kindness in The End" a few years ago.

    That still stands but others could be:

    I scrolled thru to see if anyone else would pick this and it was on the first page! What a way to go...
    You say Mega Ultra Deluxe Special Limited Edition Extended Autographed 5-LP, 3-CD, 4-DVD, 2-BlueRay, 4-Cassette, five 8-Track, MP4 Download plus Demos, Outtakes, Booklet, T-Shirt and Guitar Pick Gold-Leafed Box Set Version like it's a bad thing...

    "Closer" and "Guiding Light" from IQ would fit the bill for me, too.
