    An update on the funeral song.

    I can't pick one so I'll pick the ones that make a story. Becoming a legend by John Dreamer. Rise by John Dreamer. Brotherhood by John Dreamer. True strength by John Dreamer. Final frontier by Thomas Bergersen. And end of my journey by John Dreamer.

    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.

    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.

    Helena by My Chemical Romance.

    I want my friends/family to do the dance from the music video as well. Honestly, I want most of my funeral to be a remake of that video.

    At my funeral I want to play Better

    than I know myself by Adam Lambert because it's so truthful and beautifully tortured. It's the song I've always thought I would listen to if I ever killed myself. It always makes me cry to listen to coz I listened to it a lot when I was going through hard times.

    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. :)

    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.

    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.

    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'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.
