PostSubject: funeral songs   Tue Dec 14, 2010 8:18 am

Something I've been thinking about lately. I like to think about my funeral, who will show up, what I would like done etc. and music is an important part of it. I'd like for the attendees to come away feeling liberated and changing their lives for the better, but also remembering my life.

All I've got by way of songs is 'Wait At Milano' - Tim Barry. I would also like a traditional Irish song but haven't picked one yet.

What do you want played at your funeral?

A Day In The Life- The Beatles. Only because it's, like, the best song ever written. Smile

I'd probably want thunder road but songs more fitting to the theme would be Because of the Shame (Against Me!) and maaaaybe 1930

I haven't put enough thought into this topic! In the end, though, the last song would have to be something by Andrew WK. Either Party Hard or I Get Wet. Because seriously, why not?!

I'm still mad about my mom's funeral, almost 15 years ago. She had told me several different times that she wanted a few specific doors songs played at her funeral. When the time came, it wasn't done, because nobody wanted to listen to a 10 year old. So if you have any wishes like this, be sure to write it somewhere official!

I couldn't settle on one thing. I have an obscene love of music, so here is my best picks for my funeral.

Stars and Boulevards - Augustana
Cold Fame - Band of Skulls
A lifetime - Better than Ezra
Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen
Atlantic City - Bruce Springsteen
Here's to the Night - Eve 6
Sky Blue and Black - Jackson Browne
Somehow, Someday - Ryan Adams
There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths
Take Me To The Riot - Stars
I'm With You - The Stills
Here Comes Horses - Tabitha's Secret
God of Wine - Third Eye Blind
Kite - U2
Don't Be Sad - Whiskeytown

If you haven't heard any of those songs, I highly recommend them by the way.

hmmm.

I'd go with Joy by Against Me!

If I were to attend a funeral, I'd probably want to play Eulogy by The Flatliners.
