Heaven - Talking Heads

Everyone is trying to get to the bar
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven
The band in Heaven, they play my favorite song
They play it once again, they play it all night long
Heaven (Heaven) is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens
Heaven (Heaven)
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
Nothing ever happens
There is a party, everyone is there
Everyone will leave at exactly the same time
It's hard to imagine that nothing at all
Could be so exciting, could be so much fun

I don't know about my funeral, but at my wake, I'd like them to play "Pop Goes the Weasel," but pause right before the "pop" part, just to see how long people will stare at the coffin waiting for something to happen.

/ Actually, I have no idea, hopefully I'll figure it out before it becomes relevant

Oddly enough, that's the first song I thought of, because it's the first single I ever owned.

I have my song list planned already. It's a 40 minute loop of songs I LIKE which will play over and over until the funeral home visiting is finished. Then, my body will be transported directly to any medical college that wants to study various things like heavy alcohol abuse off and on (mostly on) plus use (not abuse) of just about every illicit drug on the planet, and severe lifelong manic depression, not sure what the diagnosis is called nowadays. I'll spare you the remainder of gory details. It's hard to believe my health is so good as I turn 65. Keith Richards has nothing over me.

We're going to open the set with "The Blue Danube", Opus 314 and we'll finish with Reelin' in the Suckers by The God Damn Whores. Everything in between will rock your ass off.

Wow! Just wow! The music opening alone catches your attention and the conductor's over-the-top moves (to me) made me think of Dylan Thomas's poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Goodnight".

Very powerful and emotional music.

I don't know how old this song is, but maybe that's where Keith Richards got the idea of snorting his dad's ashes.

/yes, I know he said it was a joke
//but was it?
