Final Songs Vol. 1
A rather glib but vaguely interesting piece over at the Guardian about a new record called Final Songs Vol. 1, in which a variety of dance music illuminati, including David Holmes and Gilles Peterson, choose their funeral songs.
The selections on the record range from Satie’s “Gymnopedie 1” to the Strangler’s “Golden Brown” to some obscure Chilean folk song. Good stuff, and good, too, to hear the writer shares my distaste for that horrific death-bed rant, “My Way.”
