indeed
although i am liking the Sound of silence addition..... I would probably also add the original filmscore to F.W.Murnau's Nosferatu to the mix....probably for the moment my sarcophagus is placed into the mausaleum

Something by CocoRosie, one of those sarcastic songs like Noah's Ark or Armageddon. That is supposing I die young and have a Catholic funeral which would be provided by my parents (fuck you very much) so playing one of CocoRosie's songs would be like saying "fuck you too, Jesus."

Then The Organ Donor's March by Vermillion Lies which isn't very restrained but I'd hate my funeral to be that way and I am an organ donor.. or will be.. when I'm dead.. and such.

And definitely one or two tracks by Sarah Slean and one would HAVE to be from Night Bugs and I'd be inclined to say Duncan or St. Francis, maybe both. I wouldn't mind Hear Me Out being played too.

Have To Drive too and maybe something by Regina Spektor.

I give you these in detail, my compatriots, because you must execute these wishes for me when I die because, whenever anybody talks about funeral music, they get funny looks.

 ;D Likewise, of the main specifications I have about my funeral is that it should not under any circumstance be in a Church or have any religious associations whatsoever. But if it were forced upon me, and I wouldn't exactly be around to protest, I'd like to have something like Mess by Ben Folds Five, " I don't believe in god so I can't be saved".

I'd go for something obvious too but the priests here usually listen to the songs first before approving them for a funeral so something seemingly sweet like CocoRosie would be perfect.

A neighbour's brother died and they had trouble getting the priest let them play Guns 'n' Roses. :/

WTF you can't refuse/censor a dead person's final wish for their funeral, that's insane!

No funeral for me. Everybody just has to get shitfaced drunk and scatter my ashes off the top of a tall building onto all the passing people below while singing Fairytale of New York by the Pogues as loud as possible
