No Depression – Uncle Tupelo

Friday, 27 April 2012

 

 A good sendoff song in a bad economy. 

 

Fear the hearts of men are failing
These our latter days we know
The great depression now is spreading
God’s word declared it would be so

I’m going where there’s no depression
To a better land that’s free from care
I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble
My home’s in heaven
I’m going there

In this dark hour, midnight nearing
The tribulation time will come
The storms will hurl the midnight fear
And sweep lost millions to their doom

I’m going where there’s no depression
To a better land that’s free from care
I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble
My home’s in heaven
I’m going there

I’m going where there’s no depression
To a better land that’s free from care
I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble
My home’s in heaven
I’m going there

    Thank you Narcissus! There are a multitude of stunning film scores out there that need excavating for funeral ceremonies. You don’t have to look very far.
    The Green Mile for instance

    Brilliant, absolutely brilliant, Phoebe. Actually, perfect for a committal for almost everyone.

    I’m sure film music is underrated for funerals.

    Thank you for this.

    Running on the theme of the Great Depression, this score by Mark Isham for the film production Of Mice and Men would be great for an infant or child funeral. Shame it isn’t a bit longer.
