The 30 Day Song Challenge Day 24 – A Song that you want played at your funeral

Switching Off by Elbow from Cast of Thousands

This song is the most beautiful song in the world.  It is slow, beautiful poised, in a way that makes it’s subject matter a little hard to decipher and it truly is one of the greatest songs Elbow ever written – it has been described by Guy Garvey as about the moment when you die and that you get to live moments in your life again, and this song describes his last moment to be about someone he loves and that concept of spending your last awake moment thinking of that person.  I think it is perfectly poignant.
