Editing my play about the guy who dies and can’t pay Charon’s toll. Now, there’s one part where a character tries to sing and charm Charon with his voice, but his singing is just horrible. My teacher thought it would be good to actually script in a particular song or lyrics that he’s singing. Not sure if I should use a well-known song or write something of my own. So... anyone have any ideas for some songs that might fit well in the story, considering it’s ancient Greece, though they speak modern English and whatnot, and they’re trying to get aboard the boat to cross the river Acheron into Hades? There are actually three different songs that they sing about five seconds of.

What kind of songs are you looking for?

Do you want modern songs that feel ancient? Or just something suitable to sing to the Ferryman of Styx?

Ideally, their choice of songs would get a laugh. I was just thinking maybe Highway to Hell or Knocking on Heaven's Door. Something that would easily come to mind, maybe having to do with heaven/hell/hades, death, or crossing the river on a boat.

Did you get my reply to you on MySpace?

Yep yep. Don't think I've heard a lot of them though. Do you know any particularly good lyrics that might fit?
