I also thought you meant funeral music, so your title was certainly not self-explanatory. I guess since you included "did" it's possible to figure out what you probably meant. Was your computer running low on electrons?

If you have special skill sets or an above-average competence level that is greatly unappreciated and will definitely leave a hole in the organization after you leave - only your boss(es) and coworkers can't see it - you can always use Anna Kendrick's "When I'm gone":

Maybe so. I'm just not planning on dying anytime soon.

'None of are, everyone else can, not me.' This is a very close quote of a Hospice nurse. I'm not that smart.

All right. Alter the topic to add "your job" after "leave". That may help those who are confused.

I just learned (through Wikipedia) my exit song was written by Blind Willie McTell. Take me now, Lord

I did not sing or think about any particular song when I ERed nearly 5 years ago. However, when I entered my apartment after returning home, the first thing I shouted was, "I'm Free!" so I suppose the song by that title would be apt.

During my last days at my last "real job" Rusty Cage by Soundgarden (and the Johnny Cash cover) were my songs of choice.

Thanks, from a confused one. Now I get it.

"Pictures of Home" - Deep Purple 1971

Don't remember it, probably not, it was released on Machine Head and there was so much great music.

I did find the original on utube, if you love guitar, Mr. Ritchie Blackmore at his finest (IMHO). I think I have purchased this album on every media type it was ever released on.

Alice Cooper's "School's Out". And, I'm not even a teacher.

So, another one here that thought the thread title meant another kind of leaving. Anyway, while I would like to say I left to the tune of

The Things I Used to Do (Stevie Ray Vaughan), the reality was probably more like "Look What They've Done to My Song" (Melanie Safka).

Doesn't matter, though, because the reality, then and now, is this
