First, here’s the suicide scene from the movie with a partial song, only 3 stanzas.
Alternately, here’s the complete song with lyrics.
Now here’s my take on the song. The lyrics make it one of my favorites of all time. I know all of the lyrics by heart. Though, I often get the verses out of order. I find the song hugely uplifting in the sense of knowing that when life is no longer better than the alternative, I always have a way out.
The song makes a great sales pitch for death with dignity.

This just might be my new theme song. It’s old, but was new to me. The song is from 1972. The imagery is obviously newer. Enjoy.

I’m not a serious music aficionado. However, I do know when I hear something I like. I also know that in a couple of hours yesterday at the Philoctetes Center, I learned a lot about music.
These guys are incredibly talented jazz improvisation’s. They are blending music from India, Asia, and Africa with Blues and other musical styles. Spend a little time listening to their music on the web. Unfortunately, they do not yet have a CD available for sale.
Read their bios on the Philoctetes site regarding the event Living in the Musical Moment. (Hopefully, a recording of the event will be available on the site. I was under the impression they were filming and would post it, but do not see it yet.) Also, give them a listen on the Dharma Jazz myspace page, which also lists their bios.
