Can anyone recommend any songs about somebody passing away?

Recommended Posts

MC Lars - Twenty Three [about suicide but still a very touching song]

Bowling For Soup - Goodbye Friend [as above more suicide related but once again, extremely touching]



Only 2 I can think of bud, and likely not exactly what youre looking for.


But either way, I hope youre holding up dude, I cant even begin to imagine what you must be going through. If it helps, Ive found that Swim by Jacks Mannequin is a really good song to sort of help you stay slightly positive. Well, as positive as you can be anyway.

Probably the most upbeat beautiful song about death I've ever heard, about the death of a tour bus




Always puts me in a good mood and I think in a poetic light hearted sort of way it may help you too bro.  Just, get in your car

and blast it.
