A Farewell to the Spirit

Album title and graphic provided by AhrimanThorn29.83K


What is the song or piece of music you wish to be played to send you on your final journey?

That was the question presented to KAT pirates on March 2, 2013.

This album is a collection of songs KAT pirates said would like to be played at their funerals. In case you missed it, AhrimanThorn29.83K ’s Funeral Music blog is located here:

AhrimanThorn29.83K 's blog reminds us that we are pirates but are also your grandfathers and grandmothers, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. We are not criminals. We are not bad people. We just like to pirate here and there in the spirit of giving and taking and sharing. We are not immortal but our torrents may live on. We are pirates with expiration dates. When our time comes please play our song and wish us well on our journey of the spirit.

The compilation consists of songs cherry picked from existing 320kbps album torrents and some were converted from FLAC torrents. There are a couple of lower-quality rips for harder to find pieces. Thanks to the pirates who originally ripped the music from Compact Disc.

If your music player supports it you will see each song has lyrics that scroll during payback.

KAT’s very own wee_wiwie35.35K wrote these special words:

Final Moment
by wee_wiwie35.35K

i wonder..
when the time comes..
will i really see it all..
re-playing the memories..
good and bad..
the joy we've shared..
the journeys we've had..

i wish..
when i no longer exist..
my good deeds remain..
my sins forgiven..
our friendship.. our love..
won't wither..
will stays intact..

i hope..
let the mourning be a short one..
my passing.. body's buried..
doesn't mean i'm ceased..
we'll meet in your dreams..
let it be known..
your heart, there wouldn't be any hole..
i'll stay there..i'll keep you strong..

i would have it so..
that you grief just for a while..
and end the sorrow with your charming smile..
remember when we sneak out the beer?
had our fills and ran into the dumpster?
it sure hurts like hell..
but for what it's worth..
we've lived our life.. we did it with style..

Her poem can also be found inside Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 (Op. 92) embedded as lyrics.

Inside the JS Bach song you’ll find the following embedded poem:

From Light To Night
by AhrimanThorn29.83K

When I close my eyes for the final time let it be in a field on a summer’s day with the sound of bees and the songs of the birds to help me on my way.
A gentle breeze upon my cheek and clouds of white above and if it could be perfect, the warmth of those I love.

When I close my eyes for the final time let no one grieve my passing, the touch of tears will moisten cheeks but spirits are raised with laughing.
And even if some sadness for those who knew me for a spell, with a splash of wine and a little time that soon will pass as well.


I hope you will enjoy this compilation. It has been my honor to make this available to all pirates around the world. And if you are listening to this music, either you or someone you know is a pirate :)

I know you've put a huge amount of work into this SirSeedsAlot129.32K and this compilation is going to have an emotional element to it that will make listening to it a very interesting experience indeed. Lots of people really opened up and bared a little bit of their souls when talking about what they wanted as their final songs, and that kind of honesty is pretty rare amongst a community that is by its nature somewhat secretive.
As you so eloquently point out, this upload nicely demonstrates with its content that behind the online pirate identities that are so often defined by bluff and bravado, are fragile thinking feeling people. Great upload and nice
it was but i cursed you nitwits the whole time and that made it TOTALLY worth it hee hee
You got it all wrong Seeds, we broke the rules like real pirates! loltongue
This is truely awesome, I like my music a bit more upbeat but im gonna dl this cos my names in there. Also Will Ferrell has to be at my funeral to sing dust in the wind

All Comments

oh and I forgot these :-
Do it for me now - Angels and Airwaves
Chasing the Sun - The Wanted
Iridescent - Linkin Park (if nobody attends my funeral :(Qsad])
Michi(Goodbye) to You All - Aluto (Japanese)
Photograph - Nickelback
Paradise - Coldplay
Until The End - Breaking Benjamin
Waiting For The End - Linkin Park
these and a few others mentioned in Ahriman's Question blog will be what will be playing at my funeral smile
When the daylight's fading
We're gonna play in the dark
Till it's golden again
And now it feels so amazing
Can't see it coming
And we'll never grow old again
You'll find us chasing the sun
Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, yeah, I'm all over the place,
Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
Those will be in the next figured out when asked for one song still put down a big list hee hee
i always do more then asked cept for 'some' stuff dizzydizzy

Cool....beyond belief.
Thankyou for this unexpected bonus. I am downloading right now as so many Kittens picked great songs even though we individually had a favourite.
This is not a funeral ensemble but more a celebration of what makes life so great and why we want to take a little music with us if and when we depart.
yeah and it ends with a headbangers ball!! haha

Wow Seeds, Respect to you and your effort and time. Looks like you're really reflecting on the inevitable.
Looks like we all were heh heh

Danny Boy is an old favourite but I would probably go for
Cold Play - Fix You.
When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...
Tears stream down on your face
I promise you that I will learn from mistakes.
Tears stream down on your face
And I...
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

As played on this weeks episode of Ricky Gervais' new series DEREK.biggrin
we prolly need a Part II maybe we can get Thorn Man to blog about it some time in the future or maybe some other music blog

I know I'll have a breakdown again when I hear mine,
but it's one helluva job you did there!!
Thx heaps for the awesome effort you made SirSeedsAlot129.32K
It's highly appreciated!!!
Thanks for posting a song and be sure to thank Thorn and Wee too they did lots of heavy lifting!
Duely noted, so a big thank you to your whole crew!!
*takes of hat and bows*

rock on. but can i go ahead and dl this or does somebody have to die first?
'cause i know some guys...
hee hee that was my morning chuckle

This for me is the "BEST" blog i have had the pleasure to read, thanks
An awful lot of work has gone into this blog and too me it has worked very well.
Perhaps in the future we might see more "Collaberative" blogs because we have a host of talent at Kat and this is a prime example.
thanks guys.
thanks for noticing is was a group include folks like you who took the time to think of a song :)

This is great,now all I have to do is burn them in a CD and write it in my will.
Thanks for the hard work you guys put into everything, I would give you guys money, but you'll have to settle with my gratitude titter
looks like your lawyer is gonna get some of your money though hee hee
