Top Ten Songs to Have As End Credits to Your Life

Alpha101
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

1 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

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

2 A Day In the Life - The Beatles

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

3 Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

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

4 Imagine - John Lennon

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

5 Remember When the Music - Harry Chapin
6 Black - Pearl Jam

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

7 Cloud of Unknowing - Gorillaz

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

8 My Immortal - Evanescence

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

9 It Was a Very Good Year - Frank Sinatra
10 In This World - Moby

The Contenders

11 The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian

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

12 Vielleicht das Nachste Mal (Maybe Next Time) - Rainbow

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

13 Reason to Breathe - Electus
14 Anybody There - Rainbow
15 Yesterday When I Was Young - Roy Clark
16 Thank You for the Music - Abba

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

17 Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues
18 Forever Young - Bob Dylan
19 Paradise Circus - Massive Attack
20 Changes - Black Sabbath

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
