These two rank high on my list.

Life in a Northern Town , by Dream Academy
You take me Up so High , by Thompson Twins

and there's one more I cant' remember right now.

Songs - Depputante. . .
I remember one from years ago. . can't place the title, just a few words about:
"Forest Lawn Cemetery. . .plastic grass with piped in tapes of Billy Graham". I remember it was real funny and I delighted in it. . .we place so much importance on dead people. The soul is gone and off having fun!
Ah there's my epitaph:

"'Im gone - off having fun ".

Keep 'em coming. You guys are cracking me up and making me think! :cool:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!

Oooh Chocolat !

Gone, Finding Neverland

Died looking for Don Juan Demarco

My Secret Window

And the most intersting:
From Hell :eyebrow:

Ok ok, these are not Epitaths, because they are not poetry.
Then I was thinking, that

"Infinitum Nihil" would be good too, in a sad sort of way.

Then Tolstoy has a bunch of quotes on life in general, which I think Johnny would enjoy reading too. (couldn't find Tolstoy's Epitath)

Very good!
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
