    Default Music you want played at your memorial service.

    Hope this isn't a repeat, I didn't put much effort into checking for it (thanks, Spiced Rum!)

    Pretty self-explanatory, what music would you like played at your memorial service?


    For me:
    Queen - Another One Bites the Dust
    CCR - Someday Never Comes
    Frank Sinatra - My Way
    Bob Marley - Three Little Birds
    David Bowie - Let's Dance


    For you?

    Feel free to post all of your "specific details"
    I've been reading a lot of existential bullshit and have become increasingly aware of my own mortality and I find this stuff fascinating.

    I've always thought Three Little Birds would be perfect for the occasion..

    I kinda like the idea of a constant loop of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata though...it seems heavy enough to make everyone suitably depressed

    I'd like Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. Because I want everybody to be desperately confused.

    Failing that, I want the most depressing music ever written, because I want people to be so fucking devastated that they will never, ever get over it afterwards. They need to be properly emotionally crippled. So I've written my own song for the occasion. It's basically my name being slowly repeated by a weeping orphan, over some mindbogglingly tragic pipe organ music.

    My dad once said that he wanted Jump In The Line by Harry Belafonte played at his funeral. He was rather drunk at the time, of course, but I still love it as an edict in a Will (he did not put it in his will and we played no music at his services, against my complaints).

    I'd request Weird Al Yankovic's take on Candle In The Wind. I don't think he's recorded one. But that sounds good at the moment. Keep in mind my funeral will be a complete and total farce.

    Genuinely reflective: Taj Mahal - Take A Giant Step
    Just to fuck with the minds of all the young males in attendance: CCR - Someday Never Comes
    Make bitches cry: Elliott Smith - Somebody That I Used To Know, Everything Means Nothing To Me, or A Distorted Reality (especially if I OD)
    Cliche but perfect: The Band - I Shall Be Released
    Trainspotting beat us all to the best one: Lou Reed - Perfect Day
    Because it's in my movie: Bonnie Koloc - Jazzman
    Because it's in the movie about my dad: The Spaniels - Goodnite, Sweetheart
    Because words sometimes obstruct: Mason Williams - Classical Gas
    Because I love Graceland: Paul Simon - The Boy In The Bubble
    Because it's about going to hell: Radiohead - Pyramid Song
    Because you wish you weren't: Ry Cooder - Jesus Is On The Mainline

    I plan on having an ipod prepared. My death won't be traditional. First a simple cremation with my ashes being tossed in the garbage or some shit, maybe someone wants them. Then i would like a giant lifesize cardboard cut out of me, with a miller lite and a shot of patron. This will be at a bar and the music will be my ipod on shuffle. It will be a grand celebration.

    Everything from Guns n Roses and Motley Crue to pre thriller Michael Jackson and Prince, to Arcade Fire and Gnarles Barkley. It will be drinking from probably 6PM - 2AM. 4 or 5 albums or songs won't cut it. There will be no church or priest or pastor or anything resembling any religion anywhere in the world at my funeral celebration.

    These are excellent songs for both weddings and funerals.

    however, after listening to it more, 4 Minute Warning by Radiohead is also a possibility.
