...dark,yes,but if you had a choice,what would you have played at your Memorial???
Actually- I Have A List
but at the top is "The Long Road" by Cliff Eberhardt and Richie Havens.
"In My Life" Beatles- My wife's and my song...
"Blue Skys" Allman Brothers
"Where There Is Faith" by 4 Him
and for giggles "Travelin' Light"- either the Widespread Panic or Clapton version.
I haven't seen you post in awhile! Nice one! First, I probably won't care because I'll be dead... but... I'll choose 3 so that I don't have to think too hard they are all optimistic and determined choices:
1) The Highwayman (Jimmy Webb)
2) Willin' (original version with ry on slide)
3) Ol' 55 (Ian Mathews version)
"Morning Like This" as sung by Sandi Patti.
Here are some that come to mind.....
1. Let Me Die in My Footsteps............Bob Dylan
2. This Old Wheel..............The Highwaymen
3. Dark Eyes..........Bob Dylan
4. Restless Farewell............Bob Dylan
The great gig in the sky - pink floyd
Heaven - talking heads
& also something kooky & out there for a funeral.....maybe " I have been in you" by zappa or something.
...keep it going!!!...I like the idea of humor...Celebrate the life!!!...thanks,Stevie
I've actually asked my wife to make sure this is played at my funeral as people file out sobbing and distraught, not knowing how to get through life without The Peoples Poet.
" I've Been Balled, Like I've Never Been Balled Before "....Ry Cooder I think. ( Or might be Bobby King and Terry Evans with Ry.)
Just A Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody - David Lee Roth
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life - Monty Python
"Not Dark Yet" - Bob Dylan
Ohh--"The Highwayman" is a great choice.
I was thinking of a couple old Byrds tunes--"Turn Turn Turn" or "We'll Meet Again"
Don't know why, but "Tears Of Rage" or "I Shall Be Released" by the Band would fit me too.
Great gig in the sky - Brilliant, SimonC. One of my all time favourites.
Or maybe "The Drugs Don't Work"
Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty is the choice for mine, whenever it happens
Stairway To Heaven.
another one bites the dust - queen
"It's the End of the World as We Know It" - REM
For the snappy beat you know!
highway to hell - ac/dc
in no particular order...
Go Rest High on that Mountain - Vince Gill
No Quarter - Led Zeppelin
Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield
