I dunno, probably a real classic. Maybe a tune from the New Golden Age in the mid-2500s.

Seasons in the Sun - Kingston trio.

It's a toss up, there's always Cab, because I am a fan of the classics...

But then again, Candye Kane's All You Can Eat (You Can Eat It All Night Long) does make me smile, and it would be fun watching some less than cordial relatives' faces, and that would do my daughter smile.

Songs at my funeral: "Many Rivers to Cross" by Jimmy Cliff, "Angel" by Aretha Franklin, and I've always had this fantasy that some beautiful, tearful woman would insist on "You're the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me" by Gladys Knight. But who would that woman be?

mamarita is under strict instructions that there is to be no 'traditional' funeral. The only thing that I ask is that I be cremated (they won't let me be dumped in my pasture for the birds of the air and the beasts of the field to dispose of me) and do with my ashes as they see fit and that any money that would have been spent on a funeral be spent on BBQ and beer for any and all who wish to continue the fun life I have led (Fark is invited)....and if there was one song to be played, may it be this.

Lately, I can't get enough Memphis Minnie so probably my favorite song about farking that manages to be not about farking.

Me and My Chauffeur Blues


Maybe the eulogy can be short.  He was a good man and he liked tasteful euphemisms for wanting to glaze that jelly roll.  Then everyone can get drunk and dance.
2013-06-21 10:04:41 AM  
I want to buried, not cremated. I want said burial to be at the foot of a large oak tree, and I want to be buried standing upright and facing east. I also want good boots on my feet, because I still have a long way to go.

I want the wake to be one hell of a party. If they can figure out a way to fudge the local health laws and have me there, sitting upright in a chair, with a beer in my hand, so much the better. NO CRYING.

And I want my funeral song in the church service to be Mozart's Requiem. At the graveside, I want Angel Band.

/ yes, I'm picky. Why do you ask?
