    "Guitar Man" by David Gates and Bread from the early 70's. It fits me to a T.

    "Wish List" by Pearl Jam. Also acceptable would be "Man of the Hour" by Pearl Jam.

    What ever Beatles songs would be of comfort to my wife, kids and friends plus The Who's The Seeker and I Can't Explain.

    I'd like to revise my previous request.
    Now I'd like the Tex Thomas' (Harvey T. Young),

    I'd like Six Strings Down and Ghost Riders on the Sky, but since I won't actually have final say, I'm guessing they'll play "What took You So Long?"

    Depends. If I die a nice old age, then "Heaven Can Wait" by Meat Loaf.

    Sonata Arctica's version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" would always be in.
    "Bridge Over Troubled Water", definitely.

    Not sure of others. Hopefully I have a good sixty years before I need to decide

    It would have to be 'Allright now' by Free. Since whatever it is that kills me would be over by then :D and I love the song (and playing it too of course though I won't be much use at this point). :D
