All my other bones are dust in the wind

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust in the wind

for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return (Genesis 3.19)

the mighty fall at last, and they are as dust before the wind (The Tale of the Heike)

With the exception of Rough Boys and Sentimental Journey, you got them right, Wolfie.

Although the two I had in mind, might as well be other versions of those songs.

The reason you don't know / recognize all is because not all of them were (hit-)singles, but album tracks instead; not all of them from artists who're known world wide and not all of them might be the kind of music you like.

 

So, I'm curious what others may recognize.

OK.. Fair enough..

 

As long as we're on a musical binge... Might as well throw in an album by a band called W.A.S.P. called The Headless Children from the late 80's.

 

 

Track #3 is the title track for that album...

 

Just had a flash of genius. How about a cave with Talking Heads? Or even go a bit Disney - a cave with Singing Skulls

Don't you think using "Dance Macabre" from Carnival des Animeaux by Camille Saint Sans might be a better thing to use:)

 

I do remember there was some sort of cartoon-movie about that clasical piece once, where you had the skelletons dancing and using their ribcases of other skellies as xylophone. I thought it was quite amusing at the time. :D

Similar, but not what I meant:

(now, If I only knew how to get posting links was working, it would save me a lot of typing. :blowup:

Very good work with the re-take on the music here Thorin

Lots of possibilities with this and everyone's suggestions for skull inscriptions

It's a bit tricky with the editor on this forum... there's a link button up which should work if you first type in the words of whatever you want to linkify then use the button to transform those words into a link taking you anywhere

would that help?

I've just editted - or is it addited? ;) - my post with song-titles to contain all the titles and band- / artistnames I used for those quotes.

I got a few more to add;

 

"Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls; welcome to the Twilight Zone" ( Barry Hay's opening of the Golden Earring song "Twilight Zone" while recording the "Naked Truth"-concert at Café "De Kroon.")

"For whom the bells tolled? For me!" (For whom the bells toll, by Metallica) (I believe there was a Sacred 2 grave having a similar quote)

"Is this the road to hell? (Road to Hell, by Chris Rea)

"This is the highway to hell for sure." (Highway to hell, by AC/DC)

 

NOTE: If anyone with strong religious believes is having problems with the last two quotes, let me know by PM and I'll remove them.

re: For whom the bell tolls..

 

Metallica indeed used that line - tho they weren't the first or only one to do so. It's quite a common quote. The origins are commonly attributed to Ernest Hemmingway - even if it's incorrect. The correct source is a guy named John Donne from waaay back in 1624...

I don't know which movie it was from, but I remember there was a repeating quote in it, saying: "Don't call me 'babe'." and eventually the woman who was called "babe" all the time, pretty much hurt the guy calling here that.

 

So in that light, the next text for a skull:

"Well, she said I shouldn't call her "babe".

Two more I came up with - having a minor burnout apparently works well for my creativeness :D - one based upon a TV series, one based upon an REM song and two based upon Pink Floyd Songs.

 

- I'm badly going where a lot went before too.

- It's the end of the world as I knew it.

- Goodbye cruel world.

- I'm just another skull in the wall.

There once was a guy named Robb

Who thought he was quite the heartthrob

Til a vampiress was smitten

Robb, not once but twice bitten

Now forever looks like death macabre

 

1st attempt at a limerick for my spot in the tomb...not sure I like it yet....what do you guys think?
