Ok. I'm feeling cheery this morning. So if you had to choose the music that will be played at your own funeral, what would you choose?

Mine: The Beatles' Blackbird; the melody of "My Lagan Love" played on cello, Phil Ochs' "When I'm Gone" and maybe Elvis Costello singing "Favourite Hour"

Over to you ...

Gently down the stream of time..Ed Trickett. And, the last few lines of William Cullen Bryants Thannatopsis.
...So live, that when your summons comes to join that innumerable caravan that moves to that mysterious realm, where each shall take his place in the silent halls of death, thou go, not like the quarry slave at night, scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained by an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave like one who wraps the covers of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.

And on my head stone: I knew if I lived long enough, something like this would happen.

Well, Callie, good morning!

Your cheeriness matches my own today. Let's see now...

Whilst people assemble and wait, or arrive late, fish for kleenex, look to see who paid for the biggest floral arrangement, etc: "Please Don't Bury Me" over and over until it's time for the emcee, er, minister, I mean, to begin.

Singalong hymn substitutes:

"Jennie Jenkins" but the attendees MUST make up verses -- in fact, maybe each person, upon arrival, mysteriously received a small card with a colour on it, but no clue yet as to why. You know, kind of an ice breaker, in case the opening theme doesn't bring on a serious case of the giggles. Not enough colours? Just look at what they name paints...

"Let's Not Just Have a Sniffle" With all the verses a Mudcat thread can conjur. Plus a few more if those present feel creative.

Recessional: "Art Thou Troubled?" A lovely song by the inimitable Georg Frideric Handel. If I'm dead, then it seems fair that one song die too, so it MUST be played by bagpipes and organ! Yes, together. No offence intended to pipers or organists. I simply cannot imagine those instruments pulling off the dynamics necessary for this gem.

Please, no private e-mails about how am I doing. Much better now, thanks. This thread is very therapeutic. Thanks Callie. Gotta go write my codicil now. (Just kidding, honey.)

Surely one of the best funeral songs ever written was performed by the Crash Test Dummies:

At My Funeral
by Brad Roberts

I'm still young, but I know my days are numbered

1234567 and so on

But a time will come when these numbers have all ended

And all I've ever seen will be forgotten

Won't you come to my funeral when my days are done

Life's not long and so I hope when I am finally dead and gone

That you'll gather round when I am lowered into the ground
When my coffin is sealed and I'm safely 6 feet under

Perhaps my friends will see fit then to judge me

Oh when they pause to consider all my blunders

I hope they won't be too quick to begrudge me

If I should die before I wake up

I pray that the Lord my soul will take but

My body, my body - that's your job

Well I can't be sure where I'm headed after death

To heaven, hell, or beyond to that Great Vast

But if I can I would like to meet my Maker

There's one or two things I'd sure like to ask

Won't you come to my funeral when my days are done

Life's not long and so I hope when I am finally dead and gone

That you'll gather round when I am lowered into the ground

I don't intend having a funeral, having left my body to the Inspector of Anatomy for transplant, research or teaching. Any bits over after the med students have finished laughing will get a free cremation. I suspect my everloving, being a churchwarden, might organise something with her own choice of music but I suppose "Ain't it grand to be bloomin' well dead" might be fitting!

Think John Lennon, crossed with Dylan and two dollops of ELO. Gotta get prodigious, me lad...and put that away, its not the prodigious I meant...I meant prolific...

Followed by Who Dies, by James Keelaghan...

And then even though I hate the song, and the man who wrote it, it's the attitude I'd rather have at my funeral, Jimmy Buffets, 'Why Don't We Get Drunk And Screw'

And anybody who cries gets a right boot up the arse!!!

I could care less about the funeral. What I would like is a wake to rival Finnegan's. In my practice, I'm finding it more frequent for clients to make arrangements in their wills for various kinds of festive send-offs. Maybe that's because I make it a practice to present that as an option for their consideration.

No joyful music at my Funeral. I want everybody to weep and moan. There'll be time enough for happy memories later. How about a couple of hymns:The Old Rugged Cross and He Walks with Me. Bridge Over Troubled Water would also hit the right mood. And Dan Milner's Leave Her, Johnny Leave Her. Vivaldi's Fireside Largo would assure that no one left with a dry eye.

ooh I like that Jimi Hendrix idea! I love that version...great song.
I have sung at a funeral, a Scottish Gaelic lament no one understood the words to but which everyone agreed was right for the occasion...but this was without question one of the hardest things I have ever done, emotionally...trying to hold it together to sing a sad song while feeling like crying (and when everyone around you is crying)is no easy task...I pretty much broke down in tears as soon as I finished...and I have been to memorial services where the music chosen for that person was just heartbreaking..."Forever Young" by Rod Stewart, for a friend who was murdered...
I never thought about this for myself...maybe "Dun Ringtill" by Jethro Tull...

I sang at my mother's funeral -- two songs which I did very badly because I was finding it hard to sing. The songs, and I think she mighthave chosenthem serself had she been asked, were Finnegan's Wake just for the last line, really, and the plaintiff verse from His Eye Is on the Sparrow". But I left a whole verse out of the former, and barely managed to get the latter out, and I had to change my strings afterward, too...
