The Breaking of the Fellowship - it's the song played at the end of the first Lord of the Rings film. It's so beautiful I could die and have my funeral tomorrow. And the lyrics are wonderful as well.

Amazing Grace.

my mom keeps on telling me she wants us to play that song at her funeral and I keep asking her not to tell me that.

Run Baby Run by Garbage; Learn To Fly by Foo Fighters; All Apologies by Nirvana.

Nothing that is too much of a downer, really. I'm already fucking dead, so I think my loved ones would already be a little sad, so some "live your life to the fullest" songs. And yeah, I know that All Apologies doesn't fit in that category, but it could play at the beginning, before the more cheerful songs. Only because I truly dig that song.

Completely unrelated. My friend and a man who I had the pleasure of working with, are both in Tracey Fragments.

I think, at my funeral, I would want certain songs that really described a lot of aspects of my life. I mean, we all have our ups and downs, but sometimes our lives can turn into emotional roller coasters. Ere go: the playlist must be varied, and deep, and make people both happy and sad, like they're experiencing something completely unique and beautiful, something that life is/can be/will be...

Yellow - Coldplay
Walk Through Hell - Say Anything
Laughing With - Regina Spektor
Northern Downpour - Panic at the Disco
Ampersand - Amanda Palmer
Keep Breathing - Ingrid Michaelson
Evelyn Evelyn - Evelyn Evelyn
The Garden You Planted - Sea Wolf
Stars/World Spins Madly On - The Weepies
The Guardian Song - Pokemon 2000
Sing - The Dresden Dolls
Lullaby - Jason Webley

if i die, and i am researching alternatives, i used to think i wanted marc almond's 'jacky' playing at my funeral, but since i have calmed down and live more monogamously and have let go of most of my plans for world domination as time-consuming and taking away from my scheduled hours of indolence, i'd rather have a forlorn bunch of trumpeters present when my friends launch the flaming arrows to the longboat containing my corpse and worldly treasures drifting away in oxford lake.

also, the longboat pyre's gonna have to burn fast.  oxford lake's about two and a half feet deep.

I'm giving my body to a body farm, I think. Let it rot in a nice natural way, but be of use to my fellow man at the same time. I didn't want to get buried alive by accident, so I was plumping for cremation, but this is less environmentally horrid, so it's win-win!

Why do they call them farms? It's got nothing to do with agriculture & makes it sound like a necrophilliaics Centre Parcs!

Sorry, I needed to change my av & I had a choice of 5 or 6. This was the tamest (a couple I think would have been removed by the mods pretty quickly should I have choosen them)
