    If the world ends on December 21...

    What song would you want to be the last song you hear?

    And let's stay away from the obvious songs like REM's (or Great Big Sea's) It's the End of the World As We Know It and The Doors This is the End.

    I hope I do not hear "Highway To Hell"

    I would like to hear Art Garfunkel's "Breakaway"

    I watch the distant lights on the runway
    Disappear into the evening sky
    Oh you know I'm with you on your journey
    Never could say goodbye

    It's not the sun you're trying to find
    Something else is on your mind
    You need a little space and time
    To break away
    It's not the place you're going to
    It's just a phase you're going through
    Though I won't stop you I don't want you to

    Break away
    Fly across your ocean
    Break away
    Time has come for you
    Break away
    Fly across your ocean
    Break away
    Time has come

    For you to awaken in another country
    Greet the morning under foreign skies
    Leaving me to face another Monday
    It's not easy to get by

    It's not the sun you're trying to find
    Something else is on your mind
    You need a little space and time
    To break away
    It's not the place you're going to
    It's just a phase you're going through
    Though I won't stop you I don't want you to

    Break away
    Fly across your ocean
    Break away (breakaway)
    Time has come for you
    Break away (breakaway)
    Fly across your ocean
    Break away (breakaway)
    Time has come for you

    I'd want to hear Old Eyes, by Ten Hands. One of my favorite tear jerkers, and I'd dedicate it to Rodan, Dick, Tojo, Pepper, Endo, and any other of the dogs I've had the pleasure of sharing my life with.

    I met you in an earlier time
    we had just one thing in common
    that was the only thing in my life
    I remember that one spring day
    when we drove out in the country
    flying past houses, farms and fields
    I would give anythingto be with you again
    I would give anything
    to hear you call my name (ooooowwwwwoooooooo!)
    I would give anything
    to see your smiling face
    to see you with my old eyes
    that wasn't so long ago
    when we were both quite naive
    oh the things that I believed
    I remember the summer with you
    when we lived out in the country
    so much life and so much time
    time is changingnow my life is rearranged
    there's so much trouble
    we got lostI could not find you
    had to leave you far behind
    but I will be with you again

    Did you ever imagine the last thing
    you'd hear as you're fading out
    was a song?

    Arriving somewhere...

    Here's another...

    And I wonder which song they're going to play when we go
    I hope it's something quiet, mannered, peaceful, and slow
    When we float out into the ether into the everlasting arms
    I hope we don't hear Marley's chains we forged in life

    Because the chains I've been hearing now for most of my life
    And the chains I've been hearing for most of my life

    Did you hear the '59 sound coming through on Grandmama's radio?
    Did you hear the rattling chains in the hospital walls?
    Did you hear the old gospel choir when they came to carry you over?
    Did you hear your favorite song one last time?

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.
