A Farewell to the Spirit
Album title and graphic provided by AhrimanThorn13154
What is the song or piece of music you wish to be played to send you on your final journey?
That was the question presented to KAT pirates on March 2, 2013.
This album is a collection of songs KAT pirates said would like to be played at their funerals. In case you missed it, AhrimanThorn13154 ’s Funeral Music blog is located here:
AhrimanThorn13154 's blog reminds us that we are pirates but are also your grandfathers and grandmothers, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. We are not criminals. We are not bad people. We just like to pirate here and there in the spirit of giving and taking and sharing. We are not immortal but our torrents may live on. We are pirates with expiration dates. When our time comes please play our song and wish us well on our journey of the spirit.
The compilation consists of songs cherry picked from existing 320kbps album torrents and some were converted from FLAC torrents. There are a couple of lower-quality rips for harder to find pieces. Thanks to the pirates who originally ripped the music from Compact Disc.
If your music player supports it you will see each song has lyrics that scroll during payback.
KAT’s very own wee_wiwie15565 wrote these special words:
when the time comes..
will i really see it all..
re-playing the memories..
good and bad..
the joy we've shared..
the journeys we've had..
when i no longer exist..
my good deeds remain..
my sins forgiven..
our friendship.. our love..
will stays intact..
let the mourning be a short one..
my passing.. body's buried..
doesn't mean i'm ceased..
we'll meet in your dreams..
let it be known..
your heart, there wouldn't be any hole..
i'll stay there..i'll keep you strong..
i would have it so..
that you grief just for a while..
and end the sorrow with your charming smile..
remember when we sneak out the beer?
had our fills and ran into the dumpster?
it sure hurts like hell..
but for what it's worth..
we've lived our life.. we did it with style..
Her poem can also be found inside Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 (Op. 92) embedded as lyrics.
Inside the JS Bach song you’ll find the following embedded poem:
From Light To Night
When I close my eyes for the final time let it be in a field on a summer’s day with the sound of bees and the songs of the birds to help me on my way.
A gentle breeze upon my cheek and clouds of white above and if it could be perfect, the warmth of those I love.
When I close my eyes for the final time let no one grieve my passing, the touch of tears will moisten cheeks but spirits are raised with laughing.
And even if some sadness for those who knew me for a spell, with a splash of wine and a little time that soon will pass as well.
I hope you will enjoy this compilation. It has been my honor to make this available to all pirates around the world. And if you are listening to this music, either you or someone you know is a pirate :)
