What Song Would You Want Played at Your Funeral?

This news story has got me thinking. http://www.uncut.co.uk/news/acdc/news/11808

If ACDC is topping the charts in Australia as one of the most popular songs played at people's funeral, what song would I want to go out to in a blaze of glory? Blaze because I am all about cremation. I don't really want a funeral, I would much prefer a party with music and food for friends to celebrate me / my life / life in general but if I had to pick one song it would be Della Reese doing a version of "It was a very Good Year". You can hear it here. www.myspace.com/lightningsgirlblog

I would love to hear what songs other people would want played at their funeral. Please post them in the comments section.

PS: My plan B song would Peggy Lee's "Is That All There Is?". Plan C - Lee Hazlewood "We All Make the Flowers Grow". This might turn into a grim muxtape at this rate.


  1. Jesus Saves...Slayer !!!

  2. "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" - Brian Wilson(Beach Boys)

  3. I would have Tenacious D's "Dude, I Totally Miss You"..in fact...me and my best friend are going to put that in our wills.


    i would also have Rufus Wainwright's "Beautiful Child", Jeff Buckley's rendition of "Hallelujah", The Velvet Teen's "Caspian Can Wait"..i'm sure there are a few others that I can't think of right now.
