    What song/music would you have played at your funeral? It doesn't have to be your favourite song.

    For me. I think it would have to be "God only knows" by the Beach boys. It is my favourite though.

    Dust in the wind - by Kansas.

    Courtesy of the scene in the Old School movie. Even my friends said they would play/sing it.

    If your friends are talking about your funeral then perhaps you should watch your back? :p

    Clair De Lune by Claude Debussy.
    The choral movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony.
    Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin.
    I'd also like The Smith's "I Know It's Over", but I'm worried that Morrissey would make some of my friends want to kill themselves.

    Because I'm a Christian, I'm leaving a list of several suggested hymns for whoever decides to choose from (or not, as the case may be) also You'll never walk alone - not because I'm a Liverpool FC supporter (I'm sport brain dead), but to reflect my love of Broadway musicals and I think the lines

    When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high
    And don’t be afraid of the dark
    At the end of the storm, there’s a golden sky
    And the sweet, silver song of a lark

    are very appropriate for such an occasion.

    Good choice, Rodgers and Hammerstein were amazing. For a secular song it has a very Christian feel to it.

    Johnny Cash, Hurt. If you haven't heard this, do yourself a favour. But be prepared to finish it depressed.





    Dammit. I didn't need reason to listen to this :' ( Saddest song ever.

    My wife's grandfather had Sinatra - I did it my way at his funeral. Personally thought it was excellent.

    Quite relevant considering he was an exec of an ASX company with a STRONG will and personality.

    I think the music can sometimes reflect how someone died. More emotion if the died suddenly, story telling if they fought an illness, maybe celebratory if they died at old age. We went to a funeral of a friend who had blackbird by the beetles, great song and they were a fan of.

    Not as far fetched as one might think. I hope my children think well of me when they are 300...

    Yep. I was serious :)

    I've kept pretty informed in the area of human longevity.

    I'll be surprised if I don't at least make 130.
