Since BillG just gave a shout out to this one -
I'm metastatic and one of the things I amuse myself with at work is creating a soundtrack to my death. When my mom was in hospice, no one told us the signs of impending death and instead of hearing calm, she heard us freaking out. I'm thinking that her last thought was that my sister and I had to stop being such ninnies - that being a favorite comment made to us and especially to me. Cult with No Name
This song is on the top of my list. I don't want sad b/c I when the time comes, I don't want to delay my passage by thinking about sad things - I want music that feels calm and 'pretty' and which might be reassuring to my husband, sister and cousin.
I don't mean this to be morbid. I have a concurrent list called 'Things to play during Remission Periods'. Lots of dance tracks on that one!

So, you want a little insight into why the sullying of the song comments irks me so much? There it is. Right there.
Because in amongst the honest gripes and raves and "I like it"/"I don't like it"s, you get something like this. And I don't really want to have to wade through 50-odd self indulgent, faux-ebonic proclamations of dancing per song to read them. Selfish? Damn right.
Cheers, bailey_comus. I hope your journey is/was peaceful, and I hope that your family did get the reassurance they needed. Thanks for the dose of perspective.
