Thanks to Jay Gabler who stopped by today with a book that examines what song people would want to hear as their very last song on earth.

Mike Ayers' One Last Song: Conversations on Life, Death, and Music asks the question to 30 musicians such as Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Andre 3000, Jeff Tweedy, Phoebe Bridgers, Colin Meloy of the Decemberists, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES, A.C. Newman of The New Pornographers, Courtney Barrett, Regina Spektor, and many more.

But today -- we want to hear what YOUR pick would be.

For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, tell us -- what would you want to hear as your last song on earth?
