    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...

    I Know The Song.

    The song "Dust In The Wind" was released the same day my father died, and I remember how appropriate the timing was. But I want an old Bob Seger tune, "Turn The Page" played at mine.

    I'll Cover You (reprise)...

    It's from 'Rent'. I love that song. They sang it at Angel's funeral and it just touched me. I told my sister that if I die before her, it's her job to make sure that a choir or the crowd sings this at my funeral. Also I kinda want her to play "I Want To Break Free" by Queen...

    Take Your Pick

    Leonard Cohen. Obviously!I used to think it would be "Closing Time". A while back, someone suggested "Bird on a Wire". If I die in the next few days, it will be "Closing Time". If I live a few weeks longer, "Bird on a Wire".

    One Of My Fav Artist..

    K- So I know this much,,,I don't want a funeral, no one crying over me...I want them to dance, and have a good time around me for the last time, so I'm gonna have all my favorites by COlbie Calliat played. (No way can you cry during "Bubbly", or "Brighhter than the Sun", no way)

    My Funeral Song

    Since I was 11 I knew what song i want playing at my funeral. 'Mad World' by Gary Jules. I just love the song SO much. I actually told my father that he was in charge of the music for my funeral. Looked at me like I was a loon. Anyway, I want 'Mad World' played at my funeral.

    Led Zeppelin's "all Of My Love"

    because it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.  Reminds me of High School, one of the best times of my life (apart from this present moment, I mean THIS present mo...you know what I mean).

    Reclamation. Lamb Of God.

    Reclamation. Lamb of god. It has a misanthropic message in the song. I'm misanthropic. That is if I even have a funeral and I'm not just thrown in a rubbish dump. It's 7:15 of snarling vocals and a catchy tune. Peep this song.

    Celine Dion!

    A song I'd like to be played at you know. Just would be great to let people who have helped me how I felt when I was kicking it. <3 for the family and friends who stuck by me even now that I'm still kicking it. =)
