GUEST,Fibula Mattock What song do you want at your funeral? (347* d) RE: What song do you want at your funeral? 26 Feb 01


"Ae Fond Kiss" and "The Parting Glass" at the funeral, but the wake is a different matter. At the wake I'd just like a hell of a lot of singing and plenty of playing, including a couple of John Denver songs and my dad singing El Paso or Coulter's Candy (diverse, I know, but they remind me of my childhood). If my Uncle Metal-Detector would sing "Miss Mouse's Ball" and "Halfway Up the Stairs" that would also be great. And my mandolin and guitar-playing pals doing "Arthur McBride" and their equally good but slightly crude "STD"...Oh, and a version of Fiddlers Green would be great to remind me of my favourite pub which shares its name. And could someone organise a couple of West Kerry sets on the wooden floor in the kitchen?
