The Weekly Top 5 Countdown: Death Songs

In sombre tones, The Weekly Top 5 Countdown continues this week vibing the impending movement of one season into it’s inevitable dissolution into a season of dormancy; the cold chill of winter’s sepulchre leads us to some deep songs about death. Thanks to Ben W. and Sue M. for their wise input on the matter; here is what Scott and I came up with otherwise…


Tom Waits “Cold Cold ”


Son House “Death Letter Blues”


Beck “Farewell Ride”


Vic Chesnutt “Flirted With You All My Life”


Ralph Stanley “O Death”
