Funerals are for the living, but I'd still hope to make a statement at my own.

I'll go for This Mortal Coil - Song to the Siren. That'll make the fuckers cry.

Almost anything except "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life".

Maybe "Sunshine On Leith", or Johnny Cash's cover of "One"

Probably nothing, but 'And When I Die' by Laura Nyro would be a good one.

With a couple pounds of weed stashed in coffin for a nice smooth burn.

I’ve not been to funeral or cremation since 1997 (don’t like them) so don’t know how they work but I want to be set on fire to Cargo Culte from Histoire de Melody Nelson and want to be fully roaring by time choir kicks in. If people aren’t allowed to watch coffin burn then fuck it I don’t even want a funeral.

TBF, I’d rather pick the music for my wake with clear instructions to my use my subs, play it loud as possible without peaking the channels and a sign on the mixer warning people I will haunt them if they turn it down. Setlist likely to change but at the moment I can’t stop listening to Fade Away by Hannah Diamond so just that on a loop.

Have to get Will You Miss Me When I Burn in there somewhere too.

Mate of mine has "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds which is unbeatable I reckon.

I'll go with "The Hell Of It" from Phantom of the Paradise - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vuikvl7zt3E

I loved the couple of seconds in Pschyoville when they're at the funeral doing this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCbnxX7VEuU


THIS is my serious one, because I fancy "The petals that were blooming are just paper in your hands" being wailed at top volume over the congregation's heads.

And then I want all my mates playing jiggly air guitar to THIS as they file out past the coffin.

A bloke at work died unexpectedly in his early 50s, and at the funeral as the coffin was being carried down the aisle with his literally weeping widow following, Hooked on a Feeling started up, "Ooo-ga-chaga ooga ooga ooo-ga-chaga ooga ooga" Turned out to not even be the most unexpected musical moment in the funeral though, as at the end the coffin trundled slowly through the curtains to the Dr. Who theme tune.

I was at a friend's dad's a few years ago and during the ceremony someone's phone ringtone went off. Living Next Door To Alice. Fortunately he managed to turn it off before we discovered if it was THAT version...
