I Have Not Yet Begun to Rot

The martial song in the front is from the Horatio Hornblower soundtrack. The part that comes up in the middle of that and then picks up again after, is “Dmi We Meet Again?” from Jon Brion’s Synechdoche, New York soundtrack (slightly enhanced). The Porter part starts with a mix of “To Rest Near You” by Rachel’s and “Something You Can’t Return To,” also on the Synechdoche soundtrack. Then “Song for Jesse” from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ score for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Follow that up with a couple from the Marie Antoinette Soundtrack, “Opus 17” by Dustin O’Halloran and “Avril 14” by Aphex Twin, in that order.

There’s a ton about Jones’ body (incidentally, this is the story I’ve gotten the most “I knew this story, but I like how you told it” sorts of emails about). For some reason, I was particularly charmed by a webpage straight out of Portsmouth, NH (R.I.P Yoken’s). They’ve got pictures of the preserved, dead Jones there too.
