The funeral is for the living, the dead people don't care,   but if I had to choose...

"Party 'til you croak and they take you away.  It's OK"  
I imagine the people who knew me would be laughing and crying at the same time, what more can you ask for at a funeral than evidence you should be sent to an insane asylum?

Bumblefark: ACunningPlan: I don't want a funeral.  Friends & rels can do as they wish to remember, celebrate or otherwise mark my passing.  But no money wasted on a "funeral"; the cheapest coffin going, because I'm assuming a box of some sort is required.  Absolutely no "visitation" & associated nonsense, swift cremation & scatter me  - preferably somewhere pretty - but wherever is convenient for them will do.

I actually made a point of going to every person in my family, and explaining to them that my final wishes are that they find the least expensive means of disposing of my body allowed by law. If that means a Hefty bag, set out by the curb, so be it.

...but, funerals are for the living, not the dead. I assume they'll ignore my wishes, and that's their prerogative. My point was simply to remind them that they do me no honors wasting their money on a corpse. It's obscene what people what people are willing to spend on misplaced sentimentality...


Agree with you:)

In Memory of Elizabeth Reed by the Allman Brothers Band (Fillmore East version)

I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major General on bagpipes.  Whoever they find to play that is welcome to attend the wake afterwards, because clearly that's someone I'd want to hang out with.

Another vote for Dead Man's Party.

Close second would be Mr E's Beautiful Blues By Eels.

/Gawddamn right it's a beautiful day
 
2013-06-21 08:28:29 PM
I'm fairly certain no one will consult me.  However, since a large portion of my friends are professional musicians, I suspect impromptu jamming would take place.  Blues artists are funny that way.

2013-06-21 09:55:14 PM
Van Morrison's In The Garden
I'm agnostic, bordering on antagonist, but the religious overtones are finely muted. Great song and magical at high volume.

I would like a PSA looping about  Cardiopulmonaryresuscitation.

Finally! I like you. For Queen and for the Enya song. My high school science teacher collected the favorite songs of his senior students by survey, and I chose that one. He placed it first on the CD he made for us, a serene interval of tranquility to precede a solid forty-five minutes of ear-curdling screamo/faux-metal selections.

He had good taste.

4) Gone Away - Offspring
5) Free Four - Pink Floyd

You've had a bad day by Daniel Powter
 
2013-06-22 02:38:50 PM
Well, I'm a bagpiper, so anything that isn't "Amazing Grace" or "Going Home". Probably "The Mason's Apron," as it's my specialty tune.
 
2013-06-22 05:08:45 PM
Funerals are for the living so I honestly don't care.
