Funeral Music

Recommended Posts

I have put together a CD with songs i want played at my funeral.  Whilst i'm not looking to depart any time soon, I want MY choices played when the time comes.  I've gone for songs that reflect MY life and how i want to be remembered by those and those.  It's all about the WORDS and life's metaphors.  Anyway, here's mine :

 

Thank you to anyone who listened to all 3 tracks .   They mean so much to me and tell my life story in precis form.

ps.   check out the bass line and gospel voices in Dory's track

Posted but it wasn’t working,

 

Some good songs there, and good that you’ve found some that reflect you and your life.

 

Mines would be;

 

The rapheals-learning to row

 

Runrig-the story

 

The washboard union-feel like that

 

All have different meaning to me. But all very personal.

 

 

P.S should get hearthammer by Runrig as a wee warm up song.

I always envisioned having this played at my funeral. It's far from apt, but, it's happening:

I've never thought about which songs but I guess I should, music has been a big part of my life.

I will get back to you.

 

Good and quirky album (Mythical Kings and Iguanas) 😎

Won't be having a funeral so no music for me. When I am gone, I am gone. Don't want to impose any more obligations on those I leave behind than I need to.

They're will probably be singing and dancing  at your funeral I'd imagine.  Quite alot probably just to warn you in advance.

I wouldn't worry mate. Like a bad dog you'll be thrown in the river and let the folks downstream worry about it.

As for me, some banging early 90's rave with a little piano mixed in. Set will be at leased 4 hours.... I'll let @NotThePars have the last say, he seems to have good taste. @Dele is invited and will be toe tapping.

As a Buddhist, I'll be playing this Christian classic
