Last Friday Caleb Wilde made a blog post asking the ‘Confessions on a Funeral Director‘ reader base to post songs about death.

From CalebWilde.com:

How many death related songs are out there?

Being that I’m really not a music buff at all, I’m turning to you guys to help me answer my question!!!

There’s obvious songs, like “Stairway to Heaven”, “Don’t Fear the Reaper” and “I Can Only Imagine”, but there’s probably hundreds of songs from genres like rap, country, gospel, classic rock, etc. that I’ve never heard of.  There’s got to be dozens of songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s that have to do with death and have never found themselves tickling my ears.

So I’m banking on you to educate me!!!  

On Sunday Caleb posted a link to a free Spotify playlist he compiled. The playlist includes 129 songs about death crowdsourced by the ‘Confessions of a Funeral Director‘ community. The playlist in appropriately named ‘Death Melodies‘:

Are there any songs not on the list that you want Caleb to add?
