I came across this song, "Great Gig in the Sky", by Pink Floyd. I don't recall hearing it before, but it was on "Dark Side of the Moon" album (which I have, and I listened to a ton back in the day). I suspect this song was too esoteric for a young punk high schooler to bother listening too. It is a odd one, basically just music and wailing sounds (not words). Now, in my older age, this song attracts attention and contemplation. Cool, powerful and rather haunting. I like it. 

Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright wrote this song, which is about life, gradually descending into death. Hence the angrier and more intense first half with a dying person refusing to "go gently into that good night." The second half is gentler, as the dying person gives into the inevitable and fades away.

Check out this awesome cover by Aussie Floyd tribute band, "The Australian Pink Floyd Show".

Occupation
I do menial tasks or run errands for others. Work often performed with no gratitude or recognition. Very small salary and very high taxes. Nevertheless, I love it. What more could I ask for? ;-)
