Well, I plan on living forever. But if my plans fall through, Chopin's "Chanson de l'adieu" Etude in E major, op. 10-3. Or maybe Funkytown.

Sigur Ros - Staralfur. It's gonna be mint, it's a pity I won't be around to witness it.
 
Tom Waits - "Tango Til They're Sore"
Seven Ascended Masters - "I'm Breaking Down (All Over Town)"

I know-- "Shiny Happy People." :tongue2:

If we ever give out an award for most morbid thread of the year, is there any question which will win?

Pavane for a dead princess by Ravel..
 
"Living In A Box" by Living In A Box... kinda appropriate. Kinda sh*te too, but I wouldn't be there to hear it?

I went to a funeral once and this person, before he passed away, specifically requested Donna Summer's "Last Dance" to be played. All of us who knew him thought it was very appropriate.

I'm not having a funeral. But if I did, the only appropriate song would be 'Highway to Hell'.

I don't believe in either, of course, being an atheist. If there was a hell, the only problem that I can see with going there is that I'd still be surrounded by lawyers and politicians.

Being the gangster that I am, I would choose "Life goes on" - 2pac

You could program the whole evening with 2Pac. "I Wonder if Heaven's Got a Ghetto" and "How Long Will They Mourn Me?" come to mind.

I'd kind of like "Gollum's Song" by Emiliana Torrini, but maybe film music, especially a song devoted to a mythical deformed creature, isn't the best choice. Maybe Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' cover of Bob Dylan's "Death is Not The End" would do.

"Knocking on Heavens Door" The Gun's N Roses Version and "Get of my cloud" by the Rolling Stones. But "agadoo" might lighten the mood a little bit.

"Everybody wants to go to heaven... but nobody wants to die" by Larry Howard

Make 'em think a little as I'm hanging out with a smirk on my face.
Cheers!

my mum used to discuss this with us kids... we said we'd play "ding dong the witch is dead" from the wizard of oz at her funeral... she said thatd be pretty funny... it would....

for me... i dunno, its way to soon to be thinking about that... i don't plan on a funeral anytime soon. but, i guess if i was to prematurely die... i'd say... i want a live polka band... or bluegrass... i think that'd be funny...

Always thought "At Your Funeral" by Saves the Day would be quite good mainly cause of the title. The song itself is good but some of the lyrics are a bit strange.
