TheBoot.com: Rita Wilson “Throw Me A Party”

Rita Wilson’s “Throw Me a Party” is a deeply personal track about wanting to celebrate life rather than mourn it. In the song, Wilson tells her friends and family what they should do when she dies: Instead of hosting a somber affair, she urges them to share their stories, laugh, dance … and throw her one heck of a party.
“When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I had so many different thoughts. You’re scared, anxious, you think about your own mortality. So I had a serious discussion with my husband that if anything happens, what I’d like is a party, a celebration,” Wilson shares in a press release. “Out of that story, I wrote “Throw Me a Party” with Liz Rose and Kristian Bush — it was very personal, and it really defined a lot of the album.” “Throw Me a Party” will appear on Wilson’s upcoming Halfway to Home album, which is expected later this spring. — CC
