    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...

    I have been to a couple of funerals lately. I am going to suggest that no service at all be had. Just keep going...

    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.

    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.

    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 ;)
