Default Here's something morbid...

Have you already picked your funeral song?

As i mentioned in another thread mine is...

The Cure - Treasure

just change "I Loved Only You" to "I Loved All Of You"

Anyone else planned this far ahead? :amused:

...'Cause when I'll be dead, I won't care anymore. I'll be dead. Because when you are dead, you are really rarely caring. You are pretty much very very dead.

I second that only, funeral songs can have an impact. In my mate's funeral, the piano player played one song I'd never expect hearing in a church: A song written by one of our greatest street poets ever. That was intense. But as for me: I don't give a sh%#t. Let them play ABBA for all I care. I won't be there to listen.

Something as this will do, if I still will care, is another matter.

Well, it used to be Nine Inch Nails - Hurt. But since I'm feeling better nowadays a lot of songs could apply.

Some of Aphex Twins ambient works would do fine for example. First Parallel Stripes, in which people may contemplate or something, and when the coffin lowers Shiny Metal Rods, or Depeche Mode - Home. Hmm, I need to write that down one day.

Sure, I myself may be dead, but I know what impact funerals and their songs (moods) can have on a person. When my mother passed they played Brian Eno's Prophecy Theme Made quite an impression on people, including myself ofcourse. It turned the whole ceremonial drag into something special.

Funerals are ceremonies for the people who stay alive, I'm sure they'll choose what pleases them best, so there's no need for me to make any arrangements. If I really wanted to send some kind of message it would make more sense for me to do it while I'm alive.

To be honest, I wouldn't want a funeral. Quite frankly, I find the idea repugnant. I'd far rather have a sort of going-away party, with champagne and cake - lots and lots of cake - and mountains of flowers. (White roses for preference.) The twist would be that everyone would get to take a rose or two home with them: It's not like there are no flowers in heaven, so I wouldn't be needing them. And there'd be music for everyone to dance to, because that's what I'd be doing in heaven, and why should they be any different?

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you..."
