WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILER FOR KINGSMAN GOLDEN CIRCLE


I finally watched Kingsman: The Golden Circle via torrent. In one scene Merlin sacrifices himself by stepping on a mine and while doing so sings "Country Roads" by John Denver.




As you can see, he truly goes out in a blaze of glory!

This is the full song




This got me thinking, what song would YOU sing if you knew you faced your end in a similar fashion? Ie you know it is just a matter of minutes that you are dead and gone and nothing you can do about it.

Mine would be one of two choices

A Tout Le Monde by Megadeth (feat. Cristina Scabbia)



Don't remember where I was
I realized life was a game
The more seriously I took things
The harder the rules became
I had no idea what it'd cost
My life passed before my eyes
When I found out how little I accomplished
All my plans denied

So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all
Please smile when you think of me
My body's gone that's all

À tout le monde (To all the world)
À tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

If my heart was still alive
I know it would surely break
And my memories left with you
There's nothing more to say

Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard
You know the sleeping feel no more pain
And the living are scarred

À tout le monde (To all the world)
À tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all
Please smile, smile when you think about me
My body's gone that's all

À tout le monde (To all the world)
À tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free
[2x]

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free
Or this

When The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash

Are you anticipating facing death soon?

Now see, as I'm not a morbid person, I took this to mean like literally facing death in battle, though not actually dying. For which I would go with something from AC/DC.

That's why I put the Kingsman video to illustrate exactly what I mean
