If your gonna go your gonna go! If so, what would you like to send you off?


For me it's Shine On You Crazy Diamond, by Floyd, but kinda last too long!!!!

Which might be a good thing for all those f.ckers that are just there for a drink!!!

 

+1 yep that's a pretty good one , or a extended version of Knockin on Heaven's Door ( just not G&R version):facepalm:

Mel Torme's take of the old standard "Don't Get Around Much Anymore"....

 

 

Either that, or the irish tune "Isn't it Grand boys"

 

Look at the coffin with golden handles

Isn't it grand boys to be bloody well dead?

 

Let's not have a sniffle,

Let's have a bloody good cry

And always remember the longer you live,

The sooner you'll bloody well die

 

Look at the preacher, bloody well santified (bloody sanctimonious)

Isn't it grand boys to be bloody well dead?

 

Look at the choir boys, bloody castrati

Isn't it grand boys to be bloody well dead?

 

Look at the widow, bloody great female

Isn't it grand boys to be bloody well dead?

Fun! I love this game. Funeral songs. So many ways to take it...If I died I wouldn't mind have any of these played for me... Some are about death. Others life. Others obscure enough to be just about anything. All of them are pretty darn beautiful.

 

Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Cosmic Dancer - T. Rex. Marc Bolan is probably my favorite songwriter.

Rocket Man - My Morning Jacket Version - YOUTUBE it. Bloody brilliant.

No Surprises - Radiohead. Best Saddest Song in the World.

Good Night - Beatles. Ringo!!! What better way to go out!!!

My Sweet Lord - George Harrison. George at his Spiritual Best.

So Long I'll See You - Tom Waits. Kinda Cheeky and bluesy. It could work.

Someday Some Morning - Billy Bragg & Wilco. I have no idea what this song is about but it's stunningingly beautiful.

Somewhere over the Rainbow - The Heartbreaking Uke Version by That Fat Hawaiin Dude...

Summer in Siam - the Pogues. AGain- don't know what the hells he's singing about but Summer in Siam seems like the afterlife to me...

Happy Hour - King Missile. Seriously! King MIssile! I love this tune...

Do You Realize - Flaming Lips. But the acoustic AOL sessions version.

Atlantis - by Donovan. Probably drive people nuts and make them walk out. But I can't get over this song. Kills me every time. Its so absurd and wonderful.

Okay, I'll toot me horn a bit. I recently composed a dirge titled "Time". It's become one of my favorites mainly because part of it was used recently in "Inside the Michael Jackson Mansion" on BET (Oct. Airing). Toot, Toot.

:blah:

 

I don't know. Playing your own song at your own funeral. That'd be kind of creepy. Congrats on the song getting picked up, though. That's really awesome.
