I want many many many songs played...

"Straight To Hell" by the Clash - the whole unedited version. And people think I'm kidding when I say this, but I'm not, I really fucking love this song
"Out Of Gas" by Modest Mouse
"PDA" by Interpol
"Both Crosses" by The Hold Steady
"How It Ends" by Devotchka
"A New England" by Billy Bragg
"Helicopter" by Bloc Party
"Valentine" by the Delays
"Not A Job" by Elbow
"I'm On Fire" by Bruce Springsteen (and yeah, I'm being cremated, but again, NOT A JOKE! xD)
"The Penultimate Clinch" by Maximo Park
"Strange Little Girl" by the Stranglers
"Ceremony" by New Order
"Caroline" by Kirsty MacColl
"Oh My God" by Kaiser Chiefs
"Do Anything You Wanna Do" by Eddie & The Hotrods

and then just as the coffin starts moving towards that curtain thing, I want "Tommy Gun" by the Clash to blast out.

Not so much a funeral as a party, I suppose xD

Already did it, Whatty, you just missed it ^.^ "Deborah"'s just my latest addition.

Straight To Hell & Strange Little Girl are awesome choices.

Kissing the Lipless by the Shins
White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes
Baby for Pree by Neutral Milk Hotel
You're a Wolf by Sea Wolf
One Red Thread by Blind Pilot
I Will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab For Cutie
November by Azure Ray
and
Milk It by Nirvana...so the guests don't die of Indie poisoning.
I'd also like episodes of questionable content projected on the walls and vegetarian food bars and lots of good scotch. This is if I die before I have children, 'cause they might want the money instead of it being used for projectors and booze.

Yeah, that's true...It's gonna be pills.  So much easier.  Also, in place of a eulogy, I want Dorothy Parker's "Cherry White" read.

Aaah, I'm gonna shoot myself, it's gonna be awesome. Terribly messy and terribly loud - just like the rest of my life xD

I'm adding the album version of "Flag Day" by the Housemartins to my list.

hmm, I'm note sure... I think I'd want like a four song cycle
1. Something sad and dark, perhaps something like Candidate by Joy Division or Little Motel by Modest Mouse. I wa't the people to be sad that I had to go.
2. Something beautiful, but not poppy or excessively happy, like The Last Beat Of My Heart or Half a Person by The Smiths maybe Lovesong by The Cure. I mostly want a really beautiful song in there, plus it will be a good transition to the next song.
3. Something happy or at least upbeat like At Last I Am Born by Morrissey or Reach For The Sun by Polyphonic Spree, maybe Nine In The Afternoon by panic At The Disco or Hello Goodbye by The Beatles. I wan't people to move on and quit crying now.
4.A bit similar to the last one, but something anthemic. I stuck between Days With You by Jason Webley and Sxip Shirey, All Tommorrows Parties by The Velvet Underground, Ask by The Smiths and Dont Get Lost In Heaven/Demon Days by the Gorillaz on this one. This is the one to send me off.

Of course, I'm only 19 years old, so this (if all goes well) is subject to change, seeing as I don't wanna be one of those people who stop liking new artists after I turn 30, who know, maybe some song from 2080 will be on my list when I actually go.
