The Coma Soundtrack

Live and let die? By G&R, maybe

We all know about the importance of a living will.

But picture this: you're lying there in that sterile hospital bed, unable to respond to the outside world. Inevitably, your close relatives are bringing their ideas of things you might respond too, including music.

But let's face it -- you don't let them change the channel or the radio station in the car -- why would you trust them with something this important.

This is not just any playlist -- it's a compilation of songs and sounds guaranteed to raise you from the dead -- or they migh as well pull the plug

       Unfortunately I have surreptiously swapped your playlist with one that only features Leonard Cohen...

       Assuming I'll be off in some Steven Donaldson type dream universe, I'll just take elevator music, to keep the dream alive.

       I'm curious if they've done experiments with a single persistent sound.   

       Like I'm decades out of school but confident that if I kept hearing my mom's voice "time to get up" I'd wake up if only to scream get out of my room :)

       I don't know - maybe your loved ones' choice of musical stylings might rouse you, screaming, "Switch that rubbish OFF!"

       Be careful to make the music different from your Fatal Auto Collision Song (see link)

       It's got to be The Smiths, hasn't it.   

       Shoplifters Of The World.

       but I really do like the Grateful Dead!

       "So, what's on your coma soundtrack?"   

       Might make a fair conversation starter.

       Sublime: "I ain't getting out of bed today"   

       What's on yours?
