Last Kiss by Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam released the song “Last Kiss” in 1999 as part of a charity compilation album. The song was later released as the A-side of a Christmas single, reaching number two in the US. The song has since been covered by many artists. Despite its popularity, the song is a sad, powerful piece about loss.

The song is based on a true story about a tragic crash that killed a sixteen-year-old couple in Barnesville, Georgia, just before Christmas 1962. The couple had been out on a date when their car collided with a tractor-trailer. It was written by Wayne Cochrane, who lived 15 miles away and was writing a song about crashes in the area.

In My Time of Dying

In My Time of Dying was one of the songs Led Zeppelin played during their 1975 tour. It was dedicated to British Labour Party Chancellor Denis Healey. On the live version, the band tuned the guitar down a semitone. However, Robert Plant was less than enthusiastic about singing the song, because the lyrics were so depressing and fatalistic. As a result, Jimmy Page switched to a black and white Danelectro guitar for the song.

The song became so popular, in fact, that Dylan included it on his debut album, and he gave the songwriting credit to several other artists who had also dealt with death. He titled the song “In My Time of Dyin’,” and it became a classic.

The song was performed by Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey at Princess Diana’s memorial service in 1997. Princess Diana will also figure into a column later, so it’s worth mentioning here. Despite its popularity, the song doesn’t seem to have stuck around as long as some of the other Mariah Carey songs. It doesn’t have nearly as many Spotify streams as the two songs by Boyz II Men. But then again, Mariah Carey has a lot of fans.
