Assuming that its because I'd croak soon, a song to my family, but I might make it more like that 'remember the sun screen song' thats full of advice and wisdom (it might be a real short song).

I actually do have a note on my computer telling where all my unfinished songs are in case I croak with a recomendation to try to find a songwriter that could finish them. They'd probably get done quicker that way than if I didn't kick the bucket.

Hello Everybody.
Welcome to the show here tonight.
Before we get into it though, just let me say, I am not feeling too well tonight, so if you don't mind I will open the gig with one I wrote while waiting to get served at the bar before fronting the mike.
Don't think of it as a sad song.
Just be happy with me that i have manages to stay alive long enough to sing it.
if I fail on option one, someone please slip in where I left off.
And whatever happens.
Have a good night.
Her we go.
I 2 3 4.
My ticker is playing up a bit.
And my head hurts like hell.
I've lost my balance sdlightly
And my sense of smell.

But I've got this gig to do.
Bringing karaoke to you.
And If I should fall over.
Here's what you've gotta do.

Ye gotta turn it up louder.
Yeah yeah Yeah.
Turn it up Louder.
Ya HOOOOOoooooo.
Don't stuff round just do it.
Pump up the pace and get in to it.
Rock and rolllllllll.
Graham

My last song would be

Never Give Up on Yourself
don't believe them if they say
you're too young
you're too old
you're too big
you're too small
when they tell you you don't have what it takes
keep a-goin on
when they tell you there's an "it" that you can't make
keep a-going on
do a little something that helps your dream along the way
work hard at what you love every livin' day
and above all...
Never Give Up on Yourself

Since I don't 'xactly plan on scheduling this Dearly Departin's thing, my last song is going to be whatever one I finished before I go. Or went. (Is there a "gonna be buried sometime but thinking about it now" tense? Or doesn't English get that complicated?)

Last song hmmmmmmm...

I think it would be about girls. I love girls. I wouldn't be worried about dying, and I wouldn't want my wife or three daughters to think I was depressed or sad about passing.

This is a cool trip we are all on, and we owe it to ourselves to let those we love know we aren't a head case or a self obsessed doofus. Woe is me is a doofusy way to go.

Girls make the whole world go around, and I would rather have a shot at the top ten with a girl song, then to have my babies huddled in the corner remembering how sad Dad was before he hit the skids!

That's a word doofusy.

Blessings,

Johnboy

Is there really a last song? Could there be energy still there to be picked up by someone else?

"A man, alone at his piano, ponders the ways of traveling spirits. Locked in his own sounds of musical thoughts, too many to play at once, this man my be not be at a certain piano in a certain house or apartment, or playing certain notes you and me can hear at this time. For you see, this man of eternal music lives not in this time and place, but in-between the notes - of The Twilight Zone".

John , You know thats our goal as songwriters ,to write an eternal song ,maybe thats the answer or the -last - song so to speak.
If we create songs that will live on through the eyes and souls of others be it through their tallent or through the power of song .It would be a great thing for a song to live on!
Thanks and OH:: Graham has lost his Teddy if you see it send it home please!! Take care // keep postin . S.Dee

Thanks John.
I'll add that to the list of descriptive phrases I have had bestowed on my in these forums.
The teddy I can get by without if I can find the dummy I just spat out, but my security blanket I really need in these troubhled times S Dee.
Thanks for the lost and found announcement.

I'd write something that was so brutally close to me that it's almost embarrasing.

Hiya,I think I would liketohave my final song as one to tell everyone I know what I thought about them (good or bad)!! would probably surprise a few folks. but if I had to be nice I would sing...
would you catch me if I fall
before I end it all
though I didn't call
and save me from myself

would you fight away the demons
tear up the latest summons
make lemonade from lemons
and save me from myself

and I would live again
exist for you only
my lover and my friend
please save me

your stubborn in defeat
same mistakes you repeat
with this I can't compete
I'll save you from yourself

can't take it when you fail
or when your sick and pale
death stories you regale
I'll save you from yourself

and you would live again
exist for me only
my lover and my friend
don't leave me

together last the night
and fight the damn good fight
turn darkness into light
we'll save us from ourselves

and day by day we'll live
and past sins we'll forgive
for eachother we'll live
we'll save us from ourselves

and we will live again
exist for us only
my lover and my friend
believe me.

Interesting stuff. It makes me think of a story told by an old buddy of mine, Jim Post.

Jim went to visit Steve Goodman who was dying of leukemia. Steve wanted to hear one of Jim's songs, a favorite of his. After the song, Steve asked Jim for the guitar. Jim gave it to him and helped move the iv's and tubes so Steve could hold it. Steve said, "Here's a song I just wrote."

Imagine, your last few days and there you are...still writing songs.

It's one of Jim's favorite stories and mine too.

All the Best,
Mike

A song about trains, the world can always use another song about trains.
Wait a minute, I wrote that one already.
Well, perhaps another one.
I hear the train a coming, and its running towards the light, I'm ready now I've had my say, I won't put up a fight....
Something like that, I suppose.

NEW POSTER - enjoying site.
I'd try to inspire my friends and family to find God and live a life in Christ. I have written a collection of songs called "Last Call to The Lost", of course, I'm an unsigned songwriter....but, I think they pretty inspirational, some upbeat, some slow and croony.

sheriedee,

I'm with you on that one! I would write to tell people to remember that, even if you don't believe in the other side, that it's better to be safe than sorry, so prepare now. If there is no other side (which I believe there is), then you have lost nothing, but if there is, then you want to be sure you are not found wanting!

Sow your good seeds now, you can't do it when you're gone.
