    Take Your Pick

    Leonard Cohen. Obviously!I used to think it would be "Closing Time". A while back, someone suggested "Bird on a Wire". If I die in the next few days, it will be "Closing Time". If I live a few weeks longer, "Bird on a Wire".

    An update on the funeral song.

    I can't pick one so I'll pick the ones that make a story. Becoming a legend by John Dreamer. Rise by John Dreamer. Brotherhood by John Dreamer. True strength by John Dreamer. Final frontier by Thomas Bergersen. And end of my journey by John Dreamer.

    Maybe Close The Distance by Go Radio.

    A song about moving forward with life and finding hope to fulfill your utmost desires. It's very fitting for a death of a loved one scenario.
