Procol Harum's "Home" deals with death.
Donald Fagen's album "Morph The Cat" deals with mortality.

Another one I have listened to a number of times during the last few days is my favourite track from echolyn's new album (the best album 2012 has seen until now, as far as my limited knowledge goes): Some Memorial.

I don't think it's about ageing and death, nessisarily, but about losing somthing great you once had.
