This is the tape I want played at my funeral - it starts off with my favorite songs from childhood, which coincidentally seem to have a connection to the end of life of one thing or another. I threw in the Fall, Zappa and some other tracks for comic relief. The second side contains some of what I think are the most beautiful songs ever written. The final two tracks by Yoko Ono and Flying Saucer Attack are played at the same time - they sound really great together and it's also the only way that all the songs would fit on a 90 minute tape! I figure the title of the tape would make a good epitaph too. : )
