    Default Songs you'd want played at your funeral

    Yes i know its a morbid topic but i thought it'd be interesting to know what songs everyone thought would be the ultimate tearjerkers (not that people wouldnt be crying enough already ), and that described, or summed up your life perfectly.


    Mine would be;


    My Way (Frank Sinatra)
    And now, the end is near,
    And so I face the final curtain.
    My friends, I'll say it clear;
    I'll state my case of which I'm certain.

    I've lived a life that's full
    I've travelled each and every highway.
    And more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Regrets? I've had a few,
    But then again, too few to mention.
    I did what I had to do
    And saw it through without exemption.

    I planned each charted course -
    Each careful step along the byway,
    And more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew,
    When I bit off more than I could chew
    But through it all, when there was doubt
    I ate it up and spat it out.
    I faced it all and I stood tall
    And did it my way.

    I've loved, I've laughed and cried,
    I've had my fill - my share of losing.
    But now, as tears subside,
    I find it all so amusing.

    To think I did all that,
    And may I say, not in a shy way
    Oh no, not me.
    I did it my way.

    For what is a man? What has he got?
    If not himself - Then he has naught.
    To say the things he truly feels
    And not the words of one who kneels.
    The record shows I took the blows
    And did it my way.




    The worst song i ever heard played at a funeral was Celine Dion's Because You Loved Me, there wasn't a dry eye in the place after that. So sad.

    No song in perticular but The Beatles, Grateful Dead, Zeppelin, Dylan, and so forth. I wouldn't even give a shit if people smoked up and got high and my funeral. Yeah to bad I can't make that mandatory. Just nice happy hippie music.

    Mick Jagger's "Yew Cain't Always Git What Yew Wannnnt"!
    Nothing like a little Rolling Stones to junk pomposity!
    and "When the Saints Go Maching In" as everyone leaves.

    Definitely something by The Beatles, probably "Something", "The Long and Winding Road" or even "Free as a Bird".
    I saw a film today, oh boy.

    Excellent choices. I agree w/all of them.


    Might even add 'Memory Motel' by the Rolling Stones...'What a wonderful world' by Louie Armstrong and 'Canon in D'. Just to keep everyone honest.

    I'd have 'America' by Simon & Garfunkel or 'Here, There and Everywhere' by the Beatles ('Something' was also a beautiful choice!)
