What song/songs would you want played at your funeral?

I already let in my will that during the funeral my friends should play Agathodaimon-Body of Clay and during the burial they should play Porcupine Tree-Arriving Somewhere But Not Here.

Tell me about yours.

I have to say, this is a question I've never seen asked on any forum!

I've never even thought about this before... hmmm...

I like your second choice... "Did you ever imagine the last thing you'd hear as you're fading out was a song?". Very self-referencing!

For me, it'd have to have something by Alice In Chains, as they're a band that's touched my very soul with their pain and sincerity, and every song of theirs takes me back to being a silly 14-year-old kid with my life ahead of me. Probably "Down In A Hole" ... for more than just the obvious reference in the title. And something from Pearl Jam's Ten. Just 'cos it was a life-changing record.

Elend's entire "Winds Devouring Men" album... or some Dead Can Dance song like "Hymn to the Fallen" or "Dreams Made Flesh". And actually, this is something I've thought about before - believe it or not.

One of the songs would be of a Dutch singer named Marco Borsato, the song is called "Afscheid nemen bestaat niet" (There is no such thing as saying farewell). And maybe Within Temptation's "Our Farewell". Both very comforting songs for the ones you leave behind.

I dunno, if it was a song I liked I'd probably go straight to Hell.

hmmm, quite an interesting question.
On my funeral procession, I'd love to have "Hallowed Be Thy Name" by none other than Iron Maiden.

During my wake, I I'd love Metallica's "To Live Is to Die". The acoustic intro and outro on that song is to die for.

and on my burial, I'd have Sarah Brightman/Andrea Bocceli's "Time to Say Goodbye"

Nice music, crappy vocals. :p

It doesn't have anything on the original, though. One of the best songs ever.

Re: What song/songs would you want played at your funeral?

Strange ideas have always visited my had, so finally I've decided to try a writing essays source to help myself in my studying process. Not really fair ( is that fair to die because of homework?) but very helpful. Damn good writers, real profi. Try Astronomy Assignment Help for example, in any way it is interesting to know.
