  • Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway-John Wayne

Sorry if this question is a little morbid but someday when you die what songs do you want played at your funeral?  Traditional or something newer and different.

I would like:

Dust in the Wind by Kansas

Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum


If you are like me and want something a little different you aren't alone.

Adele, Frank Sinatra among top funeral songs

I don't think I'll have anything played. I don't think anyone will come to my funeral anyway.

If possible, I'd just let my actions in life speak for me at my funeral instead of a song.

I haven't heard those songs, maybe I'll give them a listen.

I haven't heard any of those. Is that a bad sign?

I don't exactly know if I do or don't :unsure:

I just remembered, I won't have any songs played at my funeral, because it's not a Muslim practice. Isn't life funny? :lol:

Funeral For a Friend by Elton John

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

I would prefer a repeatable melody rather than a specific song if my relatives felt the need to give me a funeral.  Possibly Simone's Theme.

If I were to have a funeral I think that would be cool. As it is, I have strict orders not to have a funeral at all. They are torture, in my opinion. Buy a keg and have a celebration of my life in the Irish tradition.
