No way. Never had it better here. :) Just another angle for a song thread. It was Elton John who was asked that question, and he suggested that song. I think it's a good choice.

I've always said I'd be disappointed if the angelic choir weren't amped up and playing this as I was heading towards the light (really only kicks in around 2:20):



It's also my mobile phone ring tone, btw. So if you see me lying on the pavement about to croak, give us a bell.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
