Diamanda Galás - Double-Barrel Prayer (1988)

It may sound good in a church. But it could also destroy their speaker system. Or break some glass. I'm not including a video here. If you look for it on YouTube... be careful...
(no, there's no nudity)

I know I'm totally commiting thread necromancy here, but this is a great thread!
Mine would be "For Good" from the musical Wicked:
Wicked - For Good

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you:

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you:

Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for

But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

And none of it seems to matter anymore

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

And because I knew you:
Because I knew you:

Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

If not that (though hub unit knows that For Good is by far the favorite choice) I would go with "Time to Say Goodbye" by Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli.

Take care,
Cindi

Okay to start Queen's Who wants to live forever?

Second song and this must be played or I shall haunt:

Ding Dong the Witch is dead which old witch the wicked witch is dead.........

Then on my way out Queen's Another one bites the dust.

Then a really really big party and NO tears.

Hail to the Chief would be cool.

Or maybe Foghorn Leghorn sing his Doo-Dah song.

I'd like to go off with lots of tears around me, so i think it would be proper to play "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Brother Iz (Izmael) who is now dead himself!

I always choke up on that one.

First off, I don't plan on having a funeral. Oh, it's not that I'm so delusional that I think that I'm not going to do or something like that. It's just that I think that funerals are absolutely ridiculous.

Instead, I'm donating my body to a medical school. Let them take whatever organs they want and, if it will do any further good, let those interns have fun while they might learn something.

Of course, there's no telling what my family and friends might do. Hopefully they have a party! If they insist on taking a moment to risk losing their "buzz" after all of those vodka shots and beers to "remember me".....maybe they could play one of these tunes. Either will suffice:
Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky


BOBBY McFERRIN Don't Worry, Be Happy

Danny boy sung by The Pogues
Do what you want by Bad Religion
Pachelbel's Canon in D (quite possibly the most beatiful piece of music I have ever heard)
To lighten the mood, toward the end Id want:
Im an Asshole by Denis Leary
Sleep Now in the Fire by RATM

reply to post by benevolent tyrant
 


I also will not be having a funeral. I do not want my children wasting thousands of my hard earned living dollars for a dead lady. I want them to cremate me and then spend maybe a hundred dollars or two on some good food, good drink, and good tunes for a rememberance party on my behalf.

At this party I want a variety of music played that will remind them of how I was when I was living. Including "The Blood is Love" by Queens of the Stone Age, "Walk" by pantera, "Angel Eyes" by Steelheart (my fiance and I will have our first dance to that at our wedding) and I fully expect my best friend (if she doesn't die before me) to play "Mr. Boombastic" which was our song.

I told her that if she dies before me I am going to play "Lightening Crashes" by Live at her funeral. That song just always makes me think of her.

I might have to turn my funeral into a festival/rave type thing,with a big wicker man esque bonfire. Come 3:03 (my favourite music related number) The fire is lit and i burn up to a few of my favourite acid techno tunes while my friends and family just keep the beat moving.

If i had to play a "normal" song,it would be Frank Sinatra. I did it my way. It would be at the end of the night,second from last tune. last track will be Tube tech-The End. (vanguard mix) a 4X4 Techno Moster with a heart and a pulse.

As I remarked in a similar thread: no formal funeral for me, just a half hour of music already selected by me. The set list concludes with Series of Dreams by Bob Dylan.
