You’re Gonna Die (So Happy Birthday)

Some people might think that a birthday song that starts with the words “You’re gonna die” is inappropriately morbid. I, on the other hand, think that a realistic sense of our mortality leads to living a full, fruitful life. Wiser men than me have come to the same conclusion. (You know–Solomon in Ecclesiastes.) Whether you’re blowing out 6 candles on your cake or celebrating 75 years like my mother is today, sing this song and then get out there and live like you mean it!

    Pretty common response to people thinking atheists have no reason for living without belief in a deity of some sort too, actually. Ah, the misconceptions… (aka PRATTs). But then, let’s not get into all that here. It’s time to look on the bright side of death.

    Sounds like a good song for tequila or margaritas.
