    Damn Interesting Topic

    I'd at least want the Ramones version of "What A Wonderful World" played. I'd want Billy Joel's "Ï Go To Extremes" played too. Background music would probably be U2's "Rattle & Hum"and "Joshua Tree". The Police's "Synchronicty"and Sting's "Dream of the Blue Turtles", "Soul Cages...

    Even though it's a classic, I don't want the OG Rolling Stones version played. An Italian opera singer, Franco Battiato, does an amazing cover that is so beautiful it breaks my heart. She would never say where she came from Yesterday don't matter if its gone While the sun is...

    Probably Taboo

    I've always been into rock. The first song I remember hearing when I was young was Hells Bells by AC/DC. I don't want my funeral to be sappy and sad. Remember me for the fun times. And for those reasons here are a few of my funeral song choices: Highway to Hell - acdc. Hells...

    I seriously don't want a funeral.... like burn me and call it done.  But if my family and friends INSIST on something, then nearly any song on Tom Wait's album Alice would work.  Especially "I'm Still Here" or "Flowers Grave." And just for fun...

    Ring of Fire & Kazoos

    For sure: Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. I can't think of others at the moment. Just don't want any depressing organ music or harps. I have enough harp music next door. Kazoos. Everyone will be handed an engraved kazoo instead of a prayer card. Perhaps Sesame Street Theme...

    Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 In E Minor, Second Movement

    I think this is possibly the most beautiful piece of music in the whole world. My mother used to play it on the piano when I was a very small girl, after I had gone to bed. I would lie in the darkness and feel very happy and sad at the same time. Now I have it on CD, and...

    My List

    At my funeral, I want them to play the song, "If Everyone Cared," by Nickelback. That is like the theme song to my life, so that would be a really good song to play while they "roll the credits" of my life. :)

    There's not much future in dying, so I'm trying to avoid it. But in case it happens in any case, I'd be a little miffed if nobody cried at my funeral, to be honest, but I certainly wouldn't want it to be somber. More of a party, really. But nothing with any harps, just on the...
