Best “Dog Remembrance” Song
Apologies if this should have been in MPSIMS, but the music-related topic seemed apropos for CS.
A little background
My precious dog, a Lab mix almost 10 years old, has been diagnosed with bone cancer - the most aggressive kind. We have been told she only has 6 months at the most, and given the way she is walking now (or not walking as the case may be), I think that is somewhat optimistic. We suspect that her time left will be measured in weeks, not months. She is currently on a very strong painkiller (hydrocodone), and our utmost concern is her comfort and well being in the time she has left.
The question for this thread
So we are going to have a friend of ours put together a video montage of our dog’s life, set to music. It will most likely be mostly stills, a-la a “slide show”, and may also include some video. We want to set this imagery to music, probably just one or two songs, totaling no more than 5-10 minutes. I have been looking through my CD collection, but so far nothing has jumped out at me. So now I am throwing the question to the Teeming Millions - what song(s) or artists do you think would work well here? I don’t want something maudlin, but at the same time, I also don’t want a snappy upbeat tune either.
Your suggestions are most welcome.
