We've all had that discussion about what our last meal would be. The latest polling says that ice cream, steak, pizza, lobster, hamburger, and spaghetti are top answers by the way. But what about your last song? What would be the last song you would want to hear? We asked Mainers on Facebook for their response, and we got hundreds of them.
What Is The Last Song You Want To Hear?
The song choices were all over the place, from heartfelt to sarcastic, and rebellious to religious. We had commercial jingles and TV themes, as well as symphonies, and really LONG songs (to delay the inevitable). Many people choose songs that were about the fact that this would be their last song.
Here are 60 songs chosen by Mainers as the last song they would ever want to hear. The NUMBER ONE choice is at the bottom.
