“We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”

- Chuck Palahniuk
(b. 21 Feb 1961)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Live forever? Well, no, not in mortality, not I!

BONUS #1 - - Who Wants to Live Forever - Queen

BONUS #2 - - Who Wants to Live Forever - Seal

BONUS #3 - - Who Wants to Live Forever - Sarah Brightman


"Who Wants to Live Forever" is a song by the English rock band Queen. The song is the sixth track on the album A Kind of Magic, released in June 1986, and was written by guitarist Brian May for the soundtrack to the film Highlander, directed by Russell Mulcahy.[1] The song peaked at No 24 in the British charts.

The song is used to frame the scenes in the film where Connor MacLeod must endure his beloved wife Heather growing old and dying while he, as an Immortal, remains forever young. (It was later used in the episodes "The Gathering", "Revenge is Sweet", "The Hunters", "Line of Fire", and "Leader of the Pack" of the Highlander television series.) The song's title is taken from a line in another movie scored by Brian May and Queen, Flash Gordon (the line can be heard on Battle Theme from Queen Flash Gordon soundtrack album)...

Sarah Brightman covered this track on her 1997 album, "Time to say Goodbye"...

A woman on the phone to her friend:

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising….

I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour.

But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

Who Wants to Live Forever

Words and music by Brian May
(b. 19 July 1947)

Recorded by Queen, 1986

Covered by Sarah Brightman, 1997
(b. 14 Aug 1960)

There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away
from us

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to live forever....?

There's no chance for us
It's all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever?

Who dares to love forever?
When love must die

But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can have forever
And we can love forever
Forever is our today
Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever?
Forever is our today

Who waits forever anyway?
