Oi, sounds like this girl was rock 'n roll. As such "November Rain" comes to mind. One of my favourite songs. Give me a few seconds; here's a spin in dedication.....

I'm so sorry, thats such a hard blow for any family and friend, though its not easy I hope that everything works out and that her children carry on her legacy with pride, its really sad, they're only babies ... your poor cousin....

i love the song choice, she sounds like an amazing lady and you are very lucky to have someone like her in your life.....(i refuse to speak in the past tense because i believe that memories keep people with you..)

for my song, its something i thought about before and to be honest i don't know one song YET that can define everything that I would like to be said or the ideas and memories that i would like to ignite in people,

I haven't been on TP for a few days so i've just come on to say #All my Condoleances# to your family...I lost my uncle early this year and words can't come close to how you are feeling...

All the littles ones she left behind+her dear husband and of course everybody else...

The song that comes to mind at this very moment is Nothing Compares To You By Sinead'O'Connor...

All the best In The Grieving Process(I'll be Thinking Of You)

First of all, my condolences to the topic starter :(

Now to the question of 'my song'... I listen to very dark gloomy songs, often bordering the depressed tone. Weirdly enough they don't make me sad, but feel like healing in a strange way. Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows deals with death and suicide wishes in very unique ways, bringing medieval horror music with very surreal almost dreamy-esque soundscapes and words, all dealing with death and decay and the wish to leave earthly life. The surreal soundscape and very poetic lyrics make it like a sort of story you listen to without it being really happening, which takes away the depressed side of it. It's by far the most unique music I ever heard.

To also name "my song" as in the one song I wish to keep with me for the rest of my life: "Ocean rain" by my favourite band Echo & The Bunnymen. A song which sounds so romantic you just wish to take your lover in your arms and fall asleep together, but at the same time once you focus on the dark lyrics you hear the sadness in the song, as below the surface the song is really about loss and letting go of a dream. A 'funeral song' as someone expressed.

All at sea again
Now my hurricanes brought down this ocean rain, to bathe me again
My ship's a sail, can you hear its tender frame, screaming from beneath the waves?
Screaming from beneath the waves...
All hands on deck at dawn, sailing to sadder shores
Your port in my heavy storms harbours the blackest thoughts

The best song ever, period. To me it is, I mean. Echo & The Bunnymen are my favourite band ever, they are the band who tought me to appreciate music and poetry at a higher level. Ian McCulloch's lyrics hit me right in the heart, and moved me in such a way that my look on music completely changed, I was just a music fan but moved into the sort of music fan for whom it's about art and the deeper meaning. Thanks to the Bunnymen's lyrics I picked up writing poetry myself again. Thanks for everything, Ian.

PS: do we have a 'favourite music' thread here on this forum?

Jase - mate - I'm truly sorry.

I'm away on the annual holiday at the moment and just read this post. Life is really hard sometimes, with no rhyme nor reason. It's just not fair.

When I was about 19, one of my best friends committed suicide, and I was a pall bearer at his funeral. I'll never, ever, EVER forget the emotions I felt that day - back in 1986.

To this day, once or twice a year, every year, I have a dream about him. He's alive, but ill, and I go and visit him and he is in his room just sitting on his bed. He doesn't recognise or remember me, and for some reason, he never will. But what comforts me is that he is alive. I say goodbye to his parents and leave. Then I wake up.

Time blunts the pain, but it never truly goes away.

Beautiful Day - U2.

Take care.
