'The Last' might be a good choice. Not exactly a happy one though. Depends if you're going for 'hey, I had a good run' or 'well, that kinda sucked'.
Funny thing - I read this thing about most popular songs people chose to be played at their own funerals. One of the highest ranking ones was 'Another One Bites the Dust'. At least, they have a sense of humor.
I never knew about this one. Great song obviously, thanks for tuning me in.
Yeah, it's good one---infused with Paul's trademark pathos and pulling at our heartstrings. The lyrics especially hit home and take on greater meaning hearing Campbell singing it, knowing he was fading away from Alzheimer's. There are no rules to songwriting, but interesting how Paul used a few lines from 'Wonderful Lie" for this one....or was it really the other way around? Was this one written before "Wonderful Lie"?
