2009 release. Final Song goes to the very heart of music's spiritual dimension by asking a number of musicians to select their ideal last song, either to serenade their final moments or to memorialize them after the fact. The participating artists deserve to be commended for their openness: they're responding to one of the most personal questions one could ask. (Several of those approached declined to take part; taboos are taboos, after all.) Song selections were chosen by DJ T., Gilles Peterson, Storm, DJ Hell, Kevin Saunderson, Laurent Garnier, Chloé, David Holmes, Ewan Pearson, Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Francois K and Coldcut. The selections feature songs by Erik Satie, Rob Gallagher, Photek, The Stranglers, Cerrone, Radiohead, Chloé, The Beach Boys, Peggy Lee, Inti Illimani, Link, Pharoah Sanders and Brian Eno.
