There's been way too much Kenny Loggins talk in the Zone lately. It's alright for now, but you must know what it can lead to. Consider this a caution:

I'd often thought of this. I've got a few choices down.

Zombie: The Cranberries

Bark at the Moon: Ozzy Osbourne

Or perhaps something instrumental, but I wouldn't mind the JLU theme playing at the gathering beforehand, if a longer version is there.

I've made the decision to be cremated, btw. I just couldn't think of myself lying in a box, rotting somewhere taking up space. And I made that decision before hearing about Hunter being cremated, which I've always felt is the real way to go. Being blasted up sky high. If I could afford that, I'd probably do it, tho I would like my ashes to be scattered perhaps on the ocean. Considering the shit we dump into it, I'll never understand why it's illegal to dump human ashes overboard. Ah well.

"Funeral For A Friend" by Elton John. Played on the biggest fucking speakers available. Loud enough to shatter the stained glass in the church during the creshendo.

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Standin’ on the edge of something much too deep
It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard

But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Geez, Athena. You're really lookin' for people to throw themselves, wailing and blubbering, onto your casket? I know it says "weep not" but damn!

Sorry... didnt mean to bum you out :(

God that would be absolutely horrifying if anyone ever threw themselves on my casket.... Or anyone elses for that matter....
That is so sad....

How about this....
I think there shall be a keg at my funeral with free flowing golden nectar of the Gods for all... and someone in the bathroom smoking doobies with all my favorite potheads... Perhaps someone at the door handing out Xanax....

It will all be good.....


Anyway.. that song is by Sarah McLachlan....

I really love her songs...

I think all funerals should have one song to cry for and one to make you smile....
I picked Greenday too.... (Time of your life) :roll:

No good???


EDIT:

Nevermind....
I got it now.......

This is the song I want to be played at my funeral... ;)

Athena, I had no idea how much I'd need her
In peaceful times I hold her close and I feed her
My heart starts palpitating when I think my guess was wrong
But I think I'll get along
She's just a girl - she's a bomb
She's just a girl - she's a bomb

Athena, all I ever want to do is please her
My life has been so settled and she's the reason
Just one word from her and my troubles are long gone
But I think I'll get along
She's just a girl - she's a bomb
She's just a girl - she's a bomb

Just a girl just a girl
Just a girl just a girl
Just a girl just a girl
She's just a girl

Athena, my heart felt like a shattered glass in an acid bath
It felt like one of those flattened ants you find on a crazy path
I'd have topped myself to give her time she didn't need to ask
Was I a suicidal psychopath?
She's just a girl - she's a bomb
She's just a girl - she's a bomb

Consumed, there was a beautiful white horse I saw on a dream stage
He had a snake the size of a sewer pipe living in his rib cage
I felt like a pickled priest who was being flambed
You got me requisitioned blondie
She's just a girl - she's a bomb
She's just a girl - she's a bomb

I'm happy, I'm ecstatic
Just a girl just a girl
Just a girl just a girl
Just a girl just a girl
She's just a girl

Look into the face of a child
Measure how long you smiled
Before the memory claimed
How long would children remain
How long would children remain

Athena, you picked me up by my lapels and screamed "leave her"
I felt like waking up in heaven on an empty meter
And now you're stuck with a castrated leader
And I hate the creep, I didn't mean that
She's a bomb
I just said it
She's a bomb
I didn't mean
She's a bomb

Athena, I had no idea how much I need her
My life has been so settled and she's the reason
Just one word from her and my troubles are long gone
Ooh, but I get along
She's just a girl, she's a bomb
She's just a girl, she's a bomb



Better???? ;)

Leonard Cohen - It it be your Will

If it be your will
That I speak no more
And my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more
I shall abide until
I am spoken for
If it be your will

If it be your will
That a voice be true
From this broken hill
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

If it be your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in hell
If it be your will
To make us well
And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In their rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night

If it be your will
If it be your will.

Was just listening to the great cover of that song on the Leonard Cohen tribute album.

I already chose living in a box to be played at my funeral, but I don't think I captured the epic sadness of the event, hence Adagio for strings. Yeah, that'd do it. :D

Just finished watching "This Film Has Not Yet Been Rated". Put a smile on my face to hear my pick played at the end credits.

TELEVISION
See No Evil

(Verlaine)

What I want
I want now
and it's a whole lot more
than 'anyhow'
I want to fly
fly a fountain
I want to jumpjumpjump
jump a mountain

lunderstandall... iseeno...
destructiveurges... iseeno...
itseemssoperfect... iseenoo...
i see... i see no... i see no evil

I get ideas
I get a notion
I want a nice little boat
made out of ocean.
I get your point.
You're so sharp.
Getting good reactions
with your ''BeBo'' talk.

Don't say unconscious
No don't say doom.
If you got to say it
let me leave this room
Cuz what I want
I want now
and it's a whole lot more
than 'anyhow.'

I'm runnin wild with the one i love
I see no evil
I'm runnin wild with the one-eyed ones
I see no evil
Pull down the future with the one you love
Pull down the future

The most beautiful music that I ever heard, I first heard when
I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey. Gayane's Adagio from Aram Khatchaturian's
Gayane ballet plays while Poole exercises inside the Discovery One.

Ethereal and otherworldly, it's a perfect send-off into the unknown.

I was asked to put together a few songs on a CD for the cremation service of a family friend. As the man was in the navy for some time, his family wanted "Sailing" by Rod Stewart as the first main song but for the rest they just wanted some sombre classical tracks. So I've put on:

The Lamb - John Taverner
Due Tramonti - Einauldi
The girl with the flaxen hair - Debussy
Canon in D - Pachelbel

Being hacked up and then fed to an animal would be pretty cool actually. Or if you choose a suitable animal you could avoid the extra hacking-up costs - what better funereal spectacle could there be than watching a huge fucking python slowly swallowing my corpse? With violent heavy metal playing and NO-ONE allowed to leave before the snake finishes.

Yep, that's better than my boring 'corpse rigged up to play musical instruments' idea from earlier in the thread. I'm changing my will - until something more disturbing comes to mind.

I've often thought that the best way to dispose of my body would be to just return it to the ecosystem. Let it be eaten by animals. Not big animals, but things like ants and worms. Bury me deep with some worms on top of me, with some good topsoil over them, and plant a garden or a tree and let me feed it.

I wonder how much of a dent we could make in our fossil-fuel usage if we took dead people and rendered their studly out and used it for fuel.

I'd quite like to be dead already before the feast begins, but yeah - we're on the same wavelength.

If that frisbee guy can have his ashes made into a frisbee, then surely a guitar or drumkit wouldn't be out of the question. A violent heavy metal group could then play the instruments, maybe using my femurs as drumsticks/ribcage as a xylophone - bones carefully extracted before the cremation. I can't wait!

I'm with KCBC - I want a full on mix tape. Shit, I may hire a DJ now and keep him on retainer.

Johnny Motherfuckin' Cash - Ring of Fire

Nirvana - Scentless Apprentice - 'GO AWAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!!'

Tom Waits - I Don't Wanna Grow Up - Because I didn't, don't, and never will.

Siouxsie Sioux - The Passenger

Deconstruction - Iris - Such a beautiful instrumental. I did a self-portrait video collage set to this song for a video editing class I took one time, and it killed. Pardon the pun.

Pixies - Where Is My Mind

Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky - Great choice. If Hunter Thompson can have it played at his, why can't I?

H.arry Belafonte - Jump In Line - Just for the Beetlejuice reference alone.

The Pogues - Fiesta - THIS is the happiest song ever recorded. If people aren't drunk off their ass and dancing at my funeral, then my life will be a failure.

Tony Bennett - I Left My Heart In San Francisco - Mainly because I did.

The Breeders - Do You Love Me Now? - Hey, it's either this or Julio Iglesias & Willie Nelson doing 'To All The Girls I've Loved Before'. Same song, really.

Jimi Hendrix - Born Under A Bad Sign/Voodoo Chile

Gillian Welch & Allison Krauss - I'll Fly Away - Because I will.
