For those who have been noticing my music posts ... no one's obligated to reply. I just kind of like to ping them out there. As mentioned in comments, these are the mixes I stick in my car for driving. Sometimes you can tell the relevance to the theme from the song title. Other times, it's more buried. Pardon my blather. ;-)
I don't really think this title (Life and Death) requires any explanation.
