Songs concerning death

It is with great trepidation I begin this thread. The topic and treatment of death in songs is offensive to some. Of course, those folks can collapse the thread. I have always had an aversion to skulls in art and decorations, but I find a solace in some songs of dying.

@edgarblythe,
Death is a part of live, and as such, a topic very, very worthy of discussion... and song. Here's a vote up and a linked song from me! Smile

@chai2,
Yes it is, isn't it. Being in a minor key is very appropriate to the theme, too.
