Apologies if this subject has been previously covered.
What song would you request to be played at your funeral?

I'll start the ball rolling.
I would like 'Just the same' by Jefferson Starship.

I'm not particular. I'll accept anything written after the year 2099.

It's funny that no one has replied to this thread. I guess everyone's too pansy to think of their own death.

I would pick "Good Riddance (Time of your life)" by Green Day. Not!!!!

I hate that song, it's like the most overused graduation song of all time. Maybe it will become the most overused funeral song.

Hmm, I'm not too sure, maybe I would pick "In My time Of Dying" by Led Zeppelin.

Who knows, I don't care as long as it's a good tune, and no depressing crap either, I want it to be a hard rock or happy sounding song.

Walk Like an Egyptian by the Bangles.

I'm not sure why, but that's the first song that came to my mind when I though of it, and it does seem appropriate.

Cum on Feel the Noize-Quiet Riot

That was the first album I ever bought

'girls rock your boys, we'll get wild wild wild'

I'd like to have Always Look on the Bright Side of Life by Monty Python played at my funeral.

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

OK it's just the goth side of me showing here, but I really love this song.

Damn, why that one? that is one scary and depressing song.

Everyone at your funeral is gonna want to kill themselves.

This one wouldn't be too bad, imo.

Brian Eno - An Ending (Ascent) (1983)

Sweet child of mine- November rain- Silent Lucidity-
"Here I go again on my own... walking down the only road Ive ever known... like a drifter I was born to walk alone, But I made up my mind ,I aint wastin no more time, so here I go again"....
So many good songs, I have thought of this many times in my life and once going across country I wrote down all the classics that I would other wise have forgotten, to give to my kids in the event of my death, I unfortunatlely lost the list.:w:

"I remember you" by Skid Row. Followed by copious amounts of beer for all at my local.

Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson - Highwayman

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..

perfect on so many levels.

I'd have to choose Ride On, by AC/DC.

They're my favorite band, and it's my favorite song... it'd be fitting.

But then, I'd want everyone to rock out, and have a good time, and remember me, not cry that I'm gone.

NIN - a warm place

I'd rather have a nice instrumental than a song where someone was singing. This song has about 10 seconds of lyrics but you cant really hear them, it just repeats this phrase over and over, "the best thing about life is knowing you put it together".

For my wife to remember me by:

ZZ Top - Tube Snake Boogie

For everyone else to remember me by:

ZZ Top - Beer Drinkers and Hellraisers

That's how you go out with style and a sense of humor!

When this old party horse goes this is the perfect song. I thought that the first time I heard it over 20 years ago. Deep Purple's Wasted Sunsets:
