What song do you want played at your funeral?

It's a cliché but I want Frank Sinatra's My Way. Or perhaps Celine Dion's version which is actually quite beautiful.

Or if I'm cremated I would like We be burnin' by Sean Paul. Just for the hell of it.

I'm not planning on any formal funeral but the song to play in remembrance of me is:

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Re: What song do you want played at your funeral?

Mariah Carey - Fly Like A Bird

There's a place up above
With no more hurt and struggling
Free of all atrocities and suffering ...

To erase all my burdens
And let me be free to
Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now Lord
Carry me high ...

I pray you'll come and carry me home

I want a live band to play it, and I want them dressed like this.

I want this song played with this video shown in ENORMOUS screens



Fucking loving it

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

The theme from Auf Wiedersehen Pet would do

Anyway...nobody really listens, most people attending will probably be wanting to get to the pub as quick as possible
