My Deathbed Playlist (and yours)- NY Times

An interesting article. Having chosen my late wife’s deathbed music I don’t know if I did a great job or not. All I can say is, I would never want to have made a list of my deathbed music at 40, as this writer did, because most of the music from then, while still good music, is nothing I would want to have played before I die. How about you?  Read the article, comments welcome.

Only “live music can be adapted to mirror, match and change with the varying rhythms of the dying process,” she told me. For Ms. Thomae, a patient’s favorite recorded music can be part of a “life review,” and can also help her find the most individually resonant melodies and themes to incorporate into her personalized work.
