Funeral songs

    Recommended Posts

    Was listening on the radio this morning - apparently some Sydney Archbishop has said the prevalence for people to have the song "My Way" at their funerals shows a descent into egotistical behaviour amongst the general populace...

     

    So I was just wondering, what song(s) do you want played at your funeral?

     

    Mine is REM's "Everybody Hurts" - I don't want a dry eye in the house!

    I don't care as I won't be able to hear it. I don't really want a funeral and want to either donate my body to medical science or be buried in a cardboard box in a field somewhere and I'd like a tree or something similar planted to give my family something to remember me by. Although as I'll be dead, if the people left behind want to do something else entirely well that's fine by me.

    I'm going to be hovering over everyone at my funeral listening in, in my ghostly form! Once a control freak, always a control freak...!!!

    The Verve - The Drugs Don't work....

     

    I thought about it at first as tongue in cheek.... but i reckon it would have the same effects as Everybody hurts...

     

    All this talk of getting old

    It's getting me down my love

    Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown

    This time I'm comin' down

     

    And I hope you're thinking of me

    As you lay down on your side

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

     

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

     

    But I know I'm on a losing streak

    'Cause I passed down my old street

    And if you wanna show, then just let me know

    And I'll sing in your ear again

     

    Now the drugs don't work

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

     

    'Cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too

    Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead

    They just make you worse

    But I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

    Yeah, I know I'll see your face again

     

    I'm never going down, I'm never coming down

    No more, no more, no more, no more, no more

    I'm never coming down, I'm never going down

    No more, no more, no more, no more, no more

    I'd just like to point out that Tyke is not the only Yorkshire person on the forum, although I'd like to think you wouldn't realise if you met me.

     

    No offense taken to the comment Nicky, although Yorkshire is rather a large area and some parts are more interesting than others...
