I spent weeks trying to salvage content from G+, mostly photos, a few threads with photos and music links/discussions...
Now the countdown clock say one day left.

There is a still-active G+ community sharing memories, tributes, music, and more - "Lights Out", now an Irish Wake, until "The End".

Reverting to my DJ days, I've posted several musical picks, and today compiled them all into one post (on Google+).
So here I'm going to attempt to replicate that, since G+ is set for demolition beginning in about one day +/-.

Songs about the end of the road - end of the line - leaving - journeying to new lands - remembering the good...
All-purpose song list (from my vantage point of "classic rock") - but a special tribute to the wonderful residents of the land, R.I.P.


Wooden Ships - Crosby, Stills & Nash

Go, take your sister then, by the hand,
lead her away from this foreign land,
Far away, where we might laugh again,
We are leaving - you don't need us.

And it's a fair wind, blowin' warm,
Out of the south over my shoulder,
Guess I'll set a course and go...

End of the Line -Traveling Wilburys

Well it's all right... sometimes you gotta be strong.
Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove.
Well it's all right, everything will work out fine.
We're going to the end of the line.

This Night Has Opened My Eyes - The Smiths

I'm not happy and I'm not sad...
She took away your troubles but then again she left pain.
Could of been a poet or could have been a fool..

Hey Jude - The Beatles

Take a sad song and make it better...

Ground Control to Major Tom (Space Oddity) - David Bowie

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you "Here am I floating 'round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do"

Two of Us - The Beatles

Two of us Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

Bookends - Simon & Garfunkel

Time it was, and what a time it was, it was....
Long ago it must be, I have a photograph..
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you.

Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot....
Don't it always seem to go,
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?

The End - The Doors

This is the end, beautiful friend.

The End - The Beatles

And in the end...
