Unfortunately, after much thought I’ve decided to call it a day with My Top Five. Next week is the 1 year anniversary and I thought we could go out with 1 more final fantastic podcast. So my theme for next week is My Top Five Farewell Tunes. We couldn’t part ways without a goodbye!

Here are My Top Five what are yours.

5. Should I stay or should I go now,

4. Sally Mclenanne, The Pogues

3. Say hello, Wave Goodbye. Soft Cell

2.That’s no way to say Goodbye, Leonard Cohen

1. So long farewell, Sound of Music OST

  2. 1. The Beatles – The Long and Winding Road. Wasn’t this their last song?
    2. I feel my other choices are somewhat irrelevant, I can’t think of 2 more fitting songs!
    3. Queen – These Are the Days of our Lives. Freddie’s last song, in the video you can see death written all over his face – he’s ghost-like. The last line “I still love you” is heart-wrenching. And you know this song is Fran’s farewell song from Cape Cod, so you gotta play it. Preferably the last song in the ‘cast (also cos I’m your best contributor!!!)

  6. I think I like David Gray’s version of “Say Hello, Wave Goodbye.” Also… it’s very tempting to put Whitesnake – Here I Go Again. Not exactly a Goodbye, but it has the feeling.

    5. Fond Farewell – Elliot Smith
    4. Don’t Speak – No Doubt
    3. A Lifetime – Better than Ezra
    2. Good Riddance – Green Day
    1. Exitlude – The Killers
