I would kinda like my coffin to be carried in/out to "The Fool" from In the Aeroplane... by NMH (how can I ever thank AFP enough for drawing my attention to that album btw?!).

Also, I would love "Anything You Love That Much, You Will See Again" by Joe Gideon and the Shark - what a beautiful song.

Sometimes, I get tired of people saying "It's not a funeral it's a celebration of life" so I want my funeral on a bleak, rainy moorside in Winter with everyone dressed in black and sobbing into handkerchiefs and the whole thing officiated over by stern-looking Russian Orthodox priests with deep, booming voices. Pre-recorded music will be Ja Nuns Hons Pris (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBhQK8w0ATU written in a mediaeval prison) and other seriously mournful stuff.

I have a list somewhere, but this was a topic at work yesterday, and a co-worker put forward the idea that they just have their iPod on shuffle for the duration.
I'm intrigued, but have so many guilty pleasures it would likely end poorly.  Something about "Whiskey drunk and hell bound" just doesn't seem like it would go over well.

I have my list somewhere but I can't find it now. It's a bit cliché but I remember it had:

Twilight - Elliott Smith
Asleep - The Smiths

Hope There's Someone - Antony & The Johnsons!!

Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap.

Either that, or Dead Is The New Alive by Emilie Autumn.


And, of course, Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life. :D
