    Okay, screw everything I ever said before.

    The song I want played at my funeral is "empire of angels" by Thomas Bergersen. I love it and it's going to be playing soon enough.

    Imagine by John Lennon.

    Every time I hear this song it stops me in my tracks. The lyrics express exactly how I wish the whole world really worked.

    Planned My Funeral

    It may seem morbid but I've planned my funeral. OK, everyone should have a will. That is just common sense and not expensive. My funeral's plans are in my will. Briefly, I'm being cremated and my remains go into the ocean. The songs for my funeral are (Prelude to the...

    http://youtu.be/mUBRbJPJtio From a show I like.

    Doesn't seem to be the original lyrics but I love the sound and the words and the sweetness and the drama and the picture of the faces of my relatives wondering why the hell they're listening to bagpipes. LOL This is only one. I think I'll compile a list actually. :)

    Honeybee by Steam Powered Giraffe.

    Because it shows how my life has been a mixture of happiness and love and craziness. And it tells my children (If I have any) and my friends/family that I love them as the song has been referred to the elemental key of love. Aha, I just love SPG.

    Highway to Hell - ACDC Then I want to be

    cremated and my ashes thrown in the ocean. I was born into water, I swim as much as I can, and having my ashes in the ocean will be like swimming forever. :)

    Since music has been the only thing there

    consistently in my life then of course it will be there to celebrate my life. Problem is I have too many songs I want played!! One song I know for sure that will be played is "Down in a Hole" by Alice in Chains.

    I have a few. One is pictures of you by the cure

    because being a photographer it's relevant, skeptic by Slipknot and Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam by nirvana. If my death is a result of suicide or self inflicted negligence I want fade to black by Metallica.

    I'll probably play Eat Me,

    Drink Me by Marilyn Manson because I'm most likely going to commit suicide so the part it says, "But the ending.. Didn't end well.." Would fit the mood.
