Songs For The Dead – A Coffin With A Built-In Hi-Fi


Have you ever considered what tunes you’ll put on while you’re lying dead in your coffin? No, of course you haven’t, because that would be insane. The world is an insane place, however, and a company called Pause are currently charging people a cool €23,500 for a coffin with a state-of-the-art hi-fi system built-in. They call it the ‘CataCombo’ and the advert really has to be seen to be believed, if just for the bit where the box is described as having ‘God-like comfort’. It raises many questions, not least what you’d have on your playlist? The video suggests the obvious ‘Knocking On Heaven’s Door’, but perhaps ‘Superstition’ would be more apt. Personally, ‘I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead’.
