Sound of silence - simon & garfunkel.
Free Bird - Lynrd Skynrd.
don't fear the reaper - Blue Oyster Cult
Do share some more..
Herman's Hermits - sleepy joe..

"Skylines and Turnstiles" by My Chemical Romance.
Great song, written about the events of 09/11/01.
The man who wrote the song was in NYC during the attacks, and watched everything...
Serial Under Achiever
I listened to The Beatles' White Album last night, and Yer Blues is about thinking about death. Does that count ??
If it most certainly does..
I had posted the thread in another non-music related forum months ago & i had got tons of replies...
This being a music forum I was expecting tons more...
thanks for the replies by the way.
I do like this song, there are some good songs on that album - but really the whole MCR back catalogue is themed on death - got a bit boring when you're not quite as death-obsessed as Gerard Way.

I'm not sure if the entire song it about either sleep or death, but it has that famous lyric:
I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death
Which I believe is a reference to the movie Scarface.
Neil Young - My My Hey Hey
Maybe not about death.. but Cobain brought about its relation to death
a restless spirit
My Death - David Bowie - bloody briliant.
