So this is it, we're going to die

Imagine if you could choose the song that took you from this life to the next, what would it be?  Or, what would you pick if you ended up in that scene from Soylent Green?

My initial choice would be The Diamond Sea, it’s my ‘calm yourself’ music on aeroplanes and it’s nice and long.  Maybe a bit of epic post-rock would be more appropriate or something with (more) uplifting lyrics? 

Sonic Youth - The Diamond Sea

Feel free to talk about funeral songs if you’d prefer, there was a very old thread for that.

God is Love by Marvin Gate, because it's the only song that's come close to making believe, and I think I might quite like to believe at that point.

'Time takes it's crazy toll...'

With me it's gotta be Metallica's 'Orion' (every time... if there's reincarnation!).

Party Hard by Andrew W.K. About a million times better than the Pulp song of the same name.

There's something very apocalyptic about this tune. It makes me imagine standing out in the open, looking at the horizon as some sort of cataclysmic event makes its way toward my location.
