Maybe The King Dies from Atlantis:


Also Wagners's Siegfried's Funeral for an Excalibur-like passing would be quite nice... or something from Star Trek ... or Star Wars ... or Rozsa or

What the hell, I'll have to die several times just to decide. smile


Edit: and if you're in a hurry:

Dan, sit tight and call an ambulance. And try to remember what the pills were.

YOR is YOR. Period.

"Into Eternity" from Vangelis' 1492.

Most definitely. I'm serious.

I think Edward G Robinson set a sterling example in his (very moving) SOYLENT GREEN death scene: Morning Mood from Grieg's PEER GYNT, Beethoven's 6th, and Tchaikovsky's Pathetique!

This is most apt. A biscuit before, or, should that be after bedtime?

The Meld from ST:TMP musically describes the way I'd prefer to go.

Lillian's Heart Attack from Brainstorm musically describes how I fear I will go.


I guess that doesn't actually answer the question as you originally raised it, but there you go.

I keep misreading the title as "Theme to Leave Wife With" in which case I'd go with Ceelo Green's F*&k You...

As for the original questions: Arthur's Farewell from First Knight.

Chris.

'The Meld'- ST-TMP, as I transfigure (gone, but not forgotten. Whatever happened to D-Ger [Decker/V'ger], anyway?)


Or, yes, a grand Wagner Finale.

I can't believe no one has mentioned "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" from Life of Brian yet.

For non-film music:

"I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Wet My Bed)" by Harry Nilsson
"I Shall Be Released" by Bob Dylan (though I'd probably go with The Band's version)
"When I Get to the Border" by Richard Thompson
"Who Knows Where the Time Goes" by Sandy Denny
"Meet on the Ledge" by Fairport Convention

TO RON PULLIAM- YES, that sounds good, when I left the big apple I played that to my friends since I was heading west.

I am a optimist- Knocking on heaven's door- Off to heaven I go , Theme from Highway to heaven and when I am in heaven I will be happy. Actually thinking about the next existence makes me happy, so no troubles on my side of life.

Some of mine:

Grieg's "Ase's Death"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aKxf1h5r4g

Morricone "Ricordare" from "A Pure Formality"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akwwL7nWHGw
the translated lyrics in english:

Remembering, remembering is like dying a little bit
now you know it
because everything comes around even if you don't want to
and forgetting,
and forgetting is harder
now you know it is harder
if you want to start over
remembering, remembering, like a dive into the sea
remembering, remembering what must be erased
and forgetting, and forgetting, is how you lose dear things
and [by] forgetting, and [by] forgetting, rare joys will end
and forgetting, and forgetting, is how you lose dear things.

Delerue "Chere Louise"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IR_wj9hWliY&list=PL8B7A0AF6C6FE1B26&index=21

Williams "The Search for the Blue Fairy" from "A.I." (from 2:28)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnRsQH7xKXY

Newton Howard "The Vote" from "The Village"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwSW5ViXOdY&list=PL5F43BD7B1445D63B

Herrmann"The Spring Sea" from "The Ghost and Mrs.Muir" (Bernstein version of course)
