When you die, what song do you want to be played at your funeral? (It doesn't have to necessarily be just one song...). And why would it/they be played?

the song by depeche mode. Enjoy the Silence. because it's so peaceful on the other side.

or any star wars song would be good.

I haven't heard of them...I'll check out their sounds!

I think, mine would have to be:
"Here comes a regular" - The replacements
Its an older, slower song...its just peaceful...relaxed.

or... (and don't laugh, its a great instrumental)
"Scully Theme" - Mark Snow
The sounds are melodic and almost kind of haunting..I liked it the first time I heard it on X-Files...

Maybe
Flogging Molly - Drunken lullaby's or just for shock The Berzerker - No one wins


(spoken)"No one ever wins, No one finally loses expect the dead. Under the sun they rot with absolute biological equality"

There'll be a time
Where I can take what they've taught and make it work
THIS would be a better place if you could free you mind of thought
THOUGH to be in this place life, has abandoned you
WORLD that we now live in has changed so rapidly
THERE'S no need for equality equality
All the dreams, ideals you fought for, waiting now for someone else
It's not real, that you're feeling parts of life's exterior
I can see you body rot, gaze upon your cornea
No one wins we end together, values, visions dead forever
HATE to be nothing why do you abandon me
WORDS without actions lies they mean nothing
CAN'T you all see the light that waves in front of you
THIS could be a mirror of the only ever way that WE'VE KNOWN
I can take what they've taught and make it work
THIS would be a better place if you could free you mind of thought
THOUGH to be in this place life, has abandoned you
WORLD that we now live in has changed so rapidly
THERE'S no need for equality equality

Me too, any Depeche Mode song would be fine. My favs would be:

1. One Caress
2. Sister of Night
3. Condemnation

Yeah! Those are excellent funeral songs. Oh, and maybe some Bowie too.

well, first of all i am not having a funeral.

second, i dont have one sad song planned for it either.

ive told everyone to cremate me and NOT have a service with some stranger dribbling on like he's my best mate.

i want everyone to have a BBQ, drinks, listen to some music, and remember the good times, fun times that we had.
funeral, no.... a wake - yes.

Yeah, no funeral, there's no fun in that - a bbq with loads of beer would be good. I'd like Inna Gadda Da Vida by Iron Butterfly and everyone has to sing, then Come On Up To The House by Tom Waits.

Heh. Here Comes a Regular is a good choice.

Well, as a long-term paranoiac and music pusher who has attended a number of botched funerals, several years ago I laid out my last wishes to family and friends, got it all in writing, etc. The service will consist of a half hour of teleonaut-approved funeral music, without anyone allowed to speak. I'll spare you the whole setlist, but the last track on the list is Series of Dreams by Bob Dylan.


I was thinking of a series of dreams
Where nothing comes up to the top
Everything stays down where it's wounded
And comes to a permanent stop.


Mmm...

I've never heard that Bob Dylan song before today!! That is a really good song!! I've always loved his song writing....just everything about his songs are really good... but... Tangled Up in Blue is probably one of my favorites...

I wouldn't have a song, I'd have a short clip... To remind people that taking life too serious can sometimes lead to a heart attack...

Have a good day!

I would only have a song played if I could fake my death and bust out of the ground into a choreographed dance sequence to Thriller.

Johnny I hardly Knew Ya, played by Dropkick Murphys.
or Far Away Boys by Flogging Molly.
Either of those would work I guess.
has to be something celtic or irish.

You should definitely learn it, just to know the dance! Even if you don't get to do it at your funeral you could break out your dance moves at parties... It'd be pretty sweet!!! I would love to see someone do the full dance...

Yakety Sax AKA the Benny Hill song.

No funeral. A celebration with my cremated remains hanging out by the grill. Lots of good metal playing over the stereo while everybody kicks back and has a good time.

I Did It My Way, quickly followed by The Monster Mash.

I have no plans for a funeral service or even a burial at the time of my death. The recipients of my body may when they are finished with it may want to return what is left to my next of kin, but with any luck, there will be no next of kin.

If by some quirk of fate there is anyone who chooses to participate in some kind of memorial service, they can play what they wish to hear, but it would be nice if they play the piece below once. I will leave no instructions to do so, however.

I am entitled to military honors, but probably there will be no one to make such arrangements.

On the whole, I couldn't care less.
