We believe that our death-denying culture impoverishes our society, and we see the possibility of helping to remedy that through music.
Our website, My Last Soundtrack, is less about death and more about affirming life in the face of it - choosing the songs you'd want played at your funeral or end-of-life celebration, the songs that tell the story of your life. We encourage users to curate this playlist for free and share it on social media in the hopes of getting people to open the door to the tougher end-of-life conversations with family and loved ones, conversations about things such as advanced care directives, funeral and burial planning, and estate planning. Our ethos is slightly edgy and creates a space where people - both those facing imminent mortality and those who are in tune with the fact that phase of life will eventually come - can approach death with less anxiety, more courage, and a healthy sense of humor.
Our blog already links to relevant content on the web related to dying, death, and grief. We have plans to expand the site to include more advanced services for creating digital legacies and planning for end of life.
