Top Ten Songs to Have as End Credits to Your Life

Me and others have always wondered, "What about at the end of our life, we have end credits, like a movie?" I'm the only one that thinks about this? Sigh. Well, here's the top ten songs that I would play if my life had end credits.

The Top Ten

What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong Cover Art

I don't need to tell anyone how amazing this song is. Everybody already knows. It's simply Armstrong's best, and possibly jazz's best period. This would perfectly suit the end of my life, and I know many others could relate. - Alpha101

Not only a gorgeous song, but it's also very fitting.
Great list! - Britgirl

A Day In the Life - The Beatles A Day In the Life - The Beatles Cover Art

This is one of the only songs to make me cry, and that's saying something. I never cry, for I am a man. Men...don't...just a second, I've got to wipe my tears-I mean sweat off my face. Anyways, this is my favorite Beatles song, and I feel that it would make a nice addition to my end credits. - Alpha101

This would make a beautiful song to play in the credits! Amazing list, Alpha101! - MontyPython

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Cover Art

Obviously this song would make my end credits. If it didn't, I'd come back to life as a ghost and strangle the person who compiled my end credits. It's one of the best songs in history, and while it gets a little stale from listening to it repeatedly, it is very meaningful, and tragic. - Alpha101

Remember When the Music - Harry Chapin Remember When the Music - Harry Chapin Cover Art
Imagine - John Lennon Imagine - John Lennon Cover Art

This is one of history's most popular and recognizable songs, and it holds a powerful message. The whole song is about unity, love, and happiness. What more could one ask for? - Alpha101

Black - Pearl Jam Black - Pearl Jam Cover Art

While this is a love song, Vedder's voice really shines in this song, and the lyrics are so touching. It's always been one of my favorite songs, and I would love to play it whenever my life comes to an end. - Alpha101

Cloud of Unknowing - Gorillaz Cloud of Unknowing - Gorillaz Cover Art

Who knew that a group such as Gorillaz could write something truly beautiful? Me, that's who. Whenever I first listened to the song, I had to hold back tears-I mean sweat. I mean, it's just so beautiful! - Alpha101

My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence Cover Art

This song would perfectly fit the end of someone's life. The chorus is sad yet beautiful, and it has one of the most impressive vocal performances ever. - Alpha101

I'll use this song. - SamuiNeko

It Was a Very Good Year - Frank Sinatra It Was a Very Good Year - Frank Sinatra Cover Art
In This World - Moby In This World - Moby Cover Art

The Contenders

The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian Cover Art

A great acoustic ballad with amazing vox and lyrics:

"Tomorrow will take us away far from home
No one will ever know our names but the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known and you're not alone
So don't be afraid of the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain, they all will remain

In my thoughts and in my dreams they're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarves, and men, and elves
Come close your eyes you can see them, too". - Metal_Treasure

Vielleicht das Nachste Mal (Maybe Next Time) - Rainbow Vielleicht das Nachste Mal (Maybe Next Time) - Rainbow Cover Art

It's a beautiful instrumental piece so you can put any meaning you want. - Metal_Treasure

Reason to Breathe - Electus
Anybody There - Rainbow Anybody There - Rainbow Cover Art
Yesterday When I Was Young - Roy Clark Yesterday When I Was Young - Roy Clark Cover Art
Thank You for the Music - Abba Thank You for the Music - Abba Cover Art

I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

I've been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance! - Metal_Treasure

It was hard to choose between this and What A Wonderful World but without music, the world would be (slightly) less wonderful. Thank you for the music indeed! - Britgirl

Ah. I always had a soft spot for this band. Very good song. - IronSabbathPriest

Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues Cover Art
Forever Young - Bob Dylan Forever Young - Bob Dylan Cover Art
Paradise Circus - Massive Attack Paradise Circus - Massive Attack Cover Art
Ocean Man - Ween Ocean Man - Ween Cover Art

It fits with every ending. - PerfectImpulseX

Changes - Black Sabbath Changes - Black Sabbath Cover Art

Again, who knew that Black Sabbath could write a song that makes your eyes sweat? I mean, their lead singer's nickname is the "Prince of Darkness" for Christ's sake! But, yes, this song is amazing too. - Alpha101

The Watchman's Gone - Gordon Lightfoot The Watchman's Gone - Gordon Lightfoot Cover Art
I Remember - Deadmau5 I Remember - Deadmau5 Cover Art

How could you go wrong with Relient K? - RiverClanRocks

Well, for a start, they did do a song which does admit to wasting ten seconds of one's life. - PositronWildhawk
