Music for Transition to the Other World

In another topic, JaimeAlphaMale inquired:

If your ascent to the other world or your ascension Back had A Grateful dead song playing what would it be?

And hey, that question seems to deserve its own topic. So...

Ripple is fine choice

If you have a chance read the biblical references in the on-line annotated lyrics.

I think Eyes of the World would be my intial choice, but get me some time to think about and I may have to change my mind.

The Wheel

I actually had an out of body experience after being hit by a drunk driver but I don't remember any music. If life and death is a cycle then I guess it would need a wheel.

Or Caution, Eleven (Yes I still go there, even after all these years) it must have lots of energy, Actually any show pre 78 will do me just fine. And yeah, aren't early Dark Stars a given on any head list?

I haven't done drugs for almost 30 years. 1979 for the herbifumaceous stuff, 1973 for chemicals. But listening to A.O.T.S. gets me off as good as any of those ever did. And at the end of the entire piece, I'm forced, once again to go... whew!, just as I did when I got high, way back when.

Must be the arrangements of the notes, or the musical structure that sets off chemical changes in my brain. What ever it is... it works!

It's hard to believe there could be anything better - transportation-wise - than "Dark Star", but Anthem truly is the place to go. It represents the moment of their legacy - so chrystal-clear, absolute inspiration. Gotsta agree w/ ya, Siebsmeister. Right on! To the sun and back again! Brilliant! Alligator...

"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."
