    I would like to have someone bring a portable radio/CD player, and play "Deacon Blues" by Steely Dan. It is my favorite song and I believe it personifies my general feelings, wit and dry humor towards my own life and of life in general. (This was recorded at the Chicago Theatre...

    "in My Time Of Darkness" By Gram Parsons

    This song is almost an old southern hymn. Gram wrote it after three of his friends died. It is the embodyment of mournful sadness and longing. I want ******* crying when I go. Lol j/k
