Hur hur hur. Funny. And actually, compared to Tom Delay-style necrophilia, I'd say it's in pretty fair taste.

Ereshkigal said...

Don't forget Simon & Garfunkel's "I am a Rock".

The last two lines:

"I am a rock, I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain, and an island never cries."

Glen said...

And the Scarecrow's song from Wizard of Oz: If I only had a brain.

Screamin' Demon said...

Eric Dolphy, "Out To Lunch"

Anonymous said...

Perhaps these are truly tasteless, but might I suggest two Funkadelic titles?

"Maggot Brain"

"Super Stupid"

Anonymous said...

And then there's "Please Release Me."

Anonymous said...

Is this still on?

Type O Negative:"Life is Killing Me"

"Just let me die w/ dignity

It's not suicide,it's simply mercy

Just who do you think you are?

Medical school don't make you God

Now I don't care what you've been taught

Just get me off this life support"

ORF said...

HA!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! I've been wanting to write about all this Schiavo crap, but I'm so over it. Can I link to this in lieu of having to come up with anything articulate to say about it myself?

Don't tell me Terry not got the Led Out. How about

In My Time of Dying
In my time of dying, want nobody to mourn
All I want for you to do is take my body home
Well, well, well, so I can die easy (X2)
Jesus, gonna make up my dyin' bed.
Meet me, Jesus, meet me. Meet me in the middle of the air
If my wings should fail me, Lord. Please meet me with another pair
Well, well, well, so I can die easy (X2)
Jesus, gonna make up.. somebody, somebody...
Jesus gonna make up... Jesus gonna make you my dyin' bed
Oh, Saint Peter, at the gates of heaven... Won't you let me in
I never did no harm. I never did no wrong
Oh, Gabriel, let me blow your horn. Let me blow your horn
Oh, I never did, did no harm.
I've only been this young once. I never thought I'd do anybody no wrong
No, not once.
Oh, I did somebody some good. Somebody some good...
Oh, did somebody some good. I must have did somebody some good...
And I see them in the streets
And I see them in the field
And I hear them shouting under my feet
And I know it's got to be real
Oh, Lord, deliver me
All the wrong I've done
You can deliver me, Lord
I only wanted to have some fun.
Hear the angels marchin', hear the' marchin', hear them marchin',
hear them marchin', the' marchin'
Oh my Jesus... (repeat)
Oh, don't you make it my dyin', dyin', dyin'...
(Studio Chatter: That's gonna be the one, isn't it?
Come have a listen, then.
Oh yes, thank you.)

If that does not fit, well there is always Stairway to Heaven

The Zombies, "She's Not There":

Well, let me tell you 'bout the way she looked
The way she acted, the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool, her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there . . .

"Fair and Balanced" Dave said...

Pink Floyd "Brain Damage" (From "Dark Side of the Moon"

Hankblog said...

MC 900 Foot Jesus also had "If I Only Had a Brain". Considering the absurdity of this whole debacle, I think it would be more appropriate.

Perhaps also the theme from MASH? "Suicide is painless"?

Hankblog said...

As long as I'm going to hell, another suggestion just came up on my iPod:

Nine Inch Nails "Head Like a Hole"

Anonymous said...

Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock-
"Don't Sleep on It"
"Times are Gettin' Ill"

"She's Alive"
"She Lives in My Lap"

Starz? And here I thought I was the only person south of Canada to remember them.

This is one of the thousand reasons why I love the internet.

Totally innocent person who's 'life' was exploited by the media and the internets.

The humor at her expense has even gotten worse posthumously.... I LOVE IT.

This is not sarcasm...ROCK ON INTERNET!!!
