Deathbed Tracks

Get Physical Records have asked several well known DJs to think about the last song to be played on their deathbed or at their funeral. The tracklist of "Final Song #1" is certainly more interesting to read than to listen to.

There is everything from Eric Satie to the Beach Boys, Radiohead, Eno, the Stranglers to Drum n´Bass and someone even wants to hear a self penned piece (royalties!).

Here is the full tracklist:
01. Erik Satie - 1. Gymnopédie (Selected by DJ T.)
02. Rob Gallagher - Little One (Selected by Gilles Peterson)
03. Photek - Modus Operandi (Selected by Storm)
04. The Stranglers - Golden Brown (Selected by DJ Hell)
05. Cerrone - Supernature (Selected by Kevin Saunderson)
06. Radiohead - Sit Down Stand Up (Selected by Laurent Garnier)
07. Chloé - Paradise (Selected by Chloé)
08. The Beach Boys - 'Til I Die (Selected by David Holmes)
09. Peggy Lee - Is That All There Is? (Selected by Ewan Pearson)
10. Inti Illimani - Caramba, Yo Soy Dueno del Baron (Selected by Ricardo Villalobos)
11. Link - Amenity (Selected by Richie Hawtin)
12. Pharoah Sanders - Astral Travelling (Selected by Francois K)
13. Brian Eno - An Ending (Ascent) (Selected by Coldcut)

Read the full article at Resident Advisor and check the Comments for some more ideas (It doesn´t take long until someone brings up Burial but apparently nobody wants to listen to "Bela Lugosi is dead").

My choice is not included. After some brief consideration I´d go with Chic´s "Good Times". I think this song is a good answer for everything!
