Osiris, the firstborn son of Nut (the sky) and Geb (the earth), gets to rule Egypt with his gorgeous wife, Isis. Together, they were the world's first power couple. When Death came into the world, the land of the dead was a dark and gloomy place, without anyone to keep all those dead people company. Talk about disappointing. And after Osiris' brother Seth murdered him, he felt so bad for them that he decided to stay in the land of the dead so they could have their own king. His son Horus became king of the living world in his place. He might be dead, but Osiris is still moving. In fact, he makes things grow. Yep, everything that grows out of the ground demonstrates his power.

Go West by Pet Shop Boys (In ancient Egyptian, to "go west" means to be dead, and live with me!)

You can check in any time you like, but you can never leave…) Another One Bites the Dust by Queen (And another one's gone… and gets to come see me…) The Farmer in the Dell (Yes, the old nursery rhyme song. Hey, it's catchy. When you're dead, you get bored easily. Don't be too hard on me.
