This would do me fine.
Counting on both the song and I being way older than we are now when the time comes.....
I would want anybody who was around to hear half of this... Yes - just half.
The Mahavishnu Orchestra's 'Smile of the Beyond' - produced by the late, great George Martin has probably polarised most audiences who have heard it.
It is 8 minutes long - but is really 2 entirely different pieces of music each exactly 4 minutes long.
The first part is sublime, featuring the haunting voice of Gayle Moran and a haunting string arrangement.
Don't bother with the second half...
This'll do the trick:
I like Willie's choice...
I have been to a couple of funerals lately. I am going to suggest that no service at all be had. Just keep going...
I ain't so close but when the time comes please play the best rock & roll song ever, thank you.
What I want to be heard at my funeral is; Good grief he's moving! Someone help me get the old fella out this box!
To be serious:
I would want Fifth Dimension (by the Byrds) played at my funeral, with a couple of acoustic guitars and the big pipe organ.
this would do it for me
That thinking is starting to gain some traction around here. For $550 or thereabouts, you can go from morgue to a box of ashes, no questions asked. Surprised the funeral home lobby isn't kicking and screaming. Reminds me of the wedding and greeting card industry.
I see the value for those left behind, but for some folks........
agree. if folks WANT to get together to grieve... I'm all for whatever they want... but after going to a couple of 'celebrations of life' and some of the things that go on.... these were both people I loved deeply and cared about... lets just say everyone grieves differently... that AND the song that I totally love for something like this, I recently witnessed it used in a way that made me ill.
Focus on those that are still here... for the dead, the suffering is over.
Bruce Springsteen, racing in the streets.
30-some posts and no Highway To Hell?
I still find Nico's version grabs me by the throat.
Maybe make a video of you playing the songs you want and leave instructions for them to be played at your funeral, wake, etc.? Even make a little farewell speech for everyone
....and just assume they want an encore and play another song or two at the end
Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Your Long Journey
Also I think my daughter will have to sing something if she can face it...
