What song will you play at your funeral?

Sigur Ros is the greatest living band. Discuss.

Postby Peven on Tue Jul 25, 2006 10:16 pm

i think someone with the sn of "lurker" should have the Police tune, "i'll be watching you" played at their funeral.

and WW, nice picks, very nice picks indeed.

here's some other choices:

"love is stronger than death" - the the

"prove yourself" - radiohead (just for the "i'm better off dead" line)

actually, i bet a lot of radiohead songs would work for a funeral.

Y'now what? Now that I'm thinking about it, I think I'll change it to the theme from 'Electric Dreams' by Georgio Moroder.






No, fuck it, I stick with The 'Mats. But I promise to play 'Electric Dreams' if something bad should happen to Flumm. Not that I'm hoping for that, god no...nothing happened to Flumm did it? Good. Number Five is Alive!

dammit... necrophilia is a thread-killer every time.

ok, being serious for a moment, if i was REALLY gonna have a song played at my funeral, it would be "Asleep" by the Smiths. i think that's the most beautiful song about death i've heard.

come to think of it, death is pretty big in smiths songs - "pretty girls make graves," "cemetry gates"... "i know it's over" - oh mother, i can feel the soil falling over my head... and if by some odd chance i get killed by a double-decker bus, then i MUST have "there is a light that never goes out" played.

"death of a disco dancer" would be good too, but i'm trying to keep that part of my life on the down-low.



if it's raining, then maybe "Rain When I Die" by Alice In Chains

Remo was an instrumental, wasn't it?

Continuing to consider the unlikely occurence of my deciding I do want music at my funeral.

"Badlands" by Bruce Springsteen
-For the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside
That it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive
I wanna find one face that ain't lookin' through me
I wanna find my place
I wanna spit in the face of these badlands

It certainly was. And what a powerful, evocative piece it was!

But if I have to have something with lyrics, I'll go with something guaranteed to make a room full of people cry - something like Hey, that's no way to say Goodbye, sung by Roberta Flack

I haven't seen Remo in 15 years, so the memory is not there. Have to look it up. Who did the score?

Wouldn't "Also Sprach Zarathustra" be great? Have a veiled casket and at the climax the cover is whipped off very quickly. Then an Elvis impersonator comes out and sings "C.C. Rider."

According to IMDB, it was Craig Safan, who sadly never reached the heights of Remo again in his career. The closest he got was A Nightmare on Elm St 4

I enjoyed the movie a great deal, though it was a bit silly. Joel Grey's performance verged on racist. Need to rent this.

Hee! Yeah, you could say that about "Chiun", but it was a different era, a more innocent time. At least that's what I tell myself. And in some ways, it shows Koreans to be the hardest mofos on the planet, so they don't do too badly.

Dude, totally. But its only because Siouxise is way hotter; especially in her
prime! She was gothalicious!

Her version of Dear Prudence is great too, but not Beatles great...


hey dude, its your funeral, play whatever version you want :wink:
wasn't Siouxie's version of Dear Prudence released as 'the Glove' ie the Banshees with Robert Smith - it is a cover version that just about equals the original - I think the cover made number one in the UK whereas the original never did

'Motherfucker Redeemer' by Godspeed you Black Emperor.

If anyone hasn't heard them, i know it sounds like a Black Metal name but they certainly are NOT. Beautiful beautiful music.

I guess if you had to get an Indie/Folk/Classical/Rock band to re-score LOTR, it'd be these guys.

Greenday-Time of Your Life

Another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.

Time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.

So make the best of this test
and don't ask why.

It's not a question
but a lesson learned in time.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs
and still frames in your mind.

Hang it on a shelf
In good health and good time.

Tattoos of memories
and dead skin on trial.

For what it's worth,
it was worth all the while.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.


It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable
but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

or

Josh Grobin-To Where You Are

Who can say for certain
Maybe you’re still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You’re still an inspiration
Can it be (? )
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you’re there
A breath away’s not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn’t faith believing
All power can’t be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
’cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you’re there
A breath away’s not far
To where you are

I know you’re there
A breath away’s not far
To where you are

fuck this song shit, I'm gonna have a mix...I mean, what are you gonna do, play one song over and over again for 2hours?!

Or rather mixes. One for the first showing, the somber family affair. The second, for all my druggie droogs. Each mix is about 2hours or so long...

1st.

    Rambling on my Mind (Version 1) Robert Johnson - Gotta kick it off with the cat who sold his soul to the devil, 'cuz sure enough I'll be seein' him soon. Sets the tone for what's to come. "Hate to leave you babe, but you treat me so unkind...".

    Going to Your Funeral, Pt. 1 Eels - Should've maybe been first, but you know how people are always late for things. E wrote this album after his sisters suicide, and you can feel the heartache. "What I need to miss is...you."

    Blueberry Hill Fats Domino Not necessarily about death per se, but just achingly beautiful and evocative of a burial (even tho' I want to be cremated. Or shot out of a cannon into space). "Though we're apart, you thought of me still..."

    Didn't I Blow Your Mind The Delfonics Just so melancholy. I want all my exes in attendance to weep uncontrollably. "It seems to make you laugh each time I cry...".

    Ain't No Sunshine Bill Withers Yeah, I ain't a she, but extrapolate, bitches! Love the strings. "Only darkness everyday..."

    Without You Harry Nilsson Gotta have some Nilsson. "No, I can't forget tomorrow /When I think of all my sorrows / When I had you there but then I let you go / And now it's only fair that I should let you know /What you should know". WEEP DAMMIT!!!

    Mad World (full version) Gary Jules If there is still a dry eye in the house, I'm coming back from the dead to haunt you. "And I find it kind of funny / I find it kind of sad / The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had." I may start leaking embalming fluid at this point I'm so fucking sappy...

    Nobody's Fault But My Own Beck Since it's 'prolly gonna be cancer that gets me. "Who would ever notice you/ You fade into a shaded room / It's such a selfish way to lose." I'm gagging on my sense of drama right about now...

    (Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay Otis Redding Simply 'cuz Otis's most popular song broke after he died. And I love it to death whatever comes after. "Look like nothing's gonna change / Everything still remains the same..."

    Run On Moby Yeah, I had this album the week it came out, and it's not my fault it become omniprescient a year later. I played it out after 3 months! And I didn't sell it to all those adverts either! "Sure as God made you rich and poor /
    you're gonna reap just what you sow..."

    Take Me To The River Talking Heads Heretical as it is to suggest, I prefer this version over the Reverends. Lightens the mood a bit to boot. Cracker funk, and if I was Hindu this is what I would want to be played as my body was placed in the Ganges (yeah, I know they don't really do that anymore, bite me, I'M DEAD!) "Take my money, my cigarettes / I haven't seen the worst of it yet.."

    Held Down De La Soul Gotta have my fave hip-hop group ever. "They were lookin for God, but found religion instead..." Cee-Lo should sing at every funeral.

    Midnight In A Perfect World DJ Shadow Shadow's best beat. 'Nuff said.

    Sour Times Portishead Back to the self-pity. Sigh. "Mysteries of our disguise revolve /Circumstance will decide..."

    Dry The Rain The Beta Band Gotta perk things up a tad, life goes on and all that. "Walked in the corner of the room / A junk yard fool with eyes of gloom..."

    When I Go Deaf Low Well, I suppose I'm deaf now. Fucking loved this song when I was alive tho'. Rippin' finale too. "And, I'll stop writing songs /stop scratching out lines / i won't have to think / and, it won't have to rhyme..."

    Fin Pavement Gotta have something from my fave band, evar. "No more absolutes, no more absolutes..." My man crush on SM extends thru my death...

    I Am Trying To Break Your Heart Wilco I can't even tell you how many times I listened to this track when it was first released. I was goin' thru some shit then, and it soothed my aching soul. "This is not a joke so please stop smiling / What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt?"

    Do You Realize?? The Flaming Lips More melancholy musings. "Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die?
    And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
    You realize that life goes fast / It's hard to make the good things last
    You realize the sun doesn't go down /It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round..."

    The Killing Moon Echo & The Bunnymen Best indie make out song, ever. No one will know about the back seat blowjobs (well, I suppose you guys do, so smile when it's played :wink:. "Fate / Up against your will /Through the thick and thin..."

    Workin' On Leavin' The Livin' Modest Mouse Time for Brocktune's exit (get high for me!). Isaac was one of the most despairing of lyricists. "Love you more than everything / Loved it more than anything / Loved everything more than anything..."

    Randy Described Eternity Built to Spill 'Cuz Isaac owes a debt to Mr. Marsch, and 'cuz I know my music. What is death if not eternity? "Where you gonna be / where will you spend eternity / I'm gonna be perfect from now on..."

    Listen, the Snow is Falling Galaxie 500 Not the first cover here, but damn if Dean and Co. didn't turn Yoko's tune into a beautiful guitar driven ballad. Plus, snow, winter, death. I'm deep like a puddle yo'. "Between your bed and mine / Between your head and my mind / Listen the snow is falling over town..."

    Wave Of Mutilation (Uk Surf) Pixies Jeebus I love this song. "Cease to resist, giving my goodbye / drive my car into the ocean / you'll think I'm dead, but i sail away..."

    There Is a Place Silver Jews David Berman is the greatest poet of American rock n' roll. Bar none. Hope he tours again before I die. "I saw God's shadow on this world / I could not love the world entire / there grew a desert in my mind / I took a hammer to it all..."

    Ring Of Fire Johnny Cash Gotta have some man in black, you just have to, it's law. He sounds kinda optimistic about the whole thing, which you gotta love. "The taste of love is sweet / when hearts like our's meet / I fell for you like a child /oh, but the fire went wild..."

    The Other Side of Mt. Heart Attack Liars Maybe it won't sound so good out of context from the album, but damn if this song doesn't move me each time I hear it. "I won't run far / I can always be found / If you need me / I can always be found." Dedicated to the one I loved when I die. Nothing ever dies, not really.

    Anyone Else But You The Moldy Peaches The amount this album has meant to my life would extend this piece to infinity. I was a (more) jaded fuck when I heard this, didn't think an album could influence life decisions. They can (if you let 'em), and my life is better for it. "You are always trying to keep it real / I'm in love with how you feel / I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else / But you..."

    Tender Blur Yeah, yeah, fuck off, I'm dead, so deal. When the mood strikes, this song can bring me to tears (did I say fuck off already?) "Tender is my heart / For screwing up my life..."

    Nowhere Near Yo La Tengo I once had someone write down the lyrics to this song to explain how she felt when I wasn't around. Moved me, deeply. "Do you know how I feel / How I feel about you / Do you know this is real / How I feel around you/ When I see you look at me / I'm not sure of anything / All I know is when you smile / I believe in everything / Do you know how I dream / How I dream about you / Do you know how I feel / Do you know... Do you know how I feel / How I feel about you / Doesn't take much to tell
    That I love, oh, I... Everyone is here, but you're nowhere near."
    That'll bring down the house, the house that shoulda been brought down by my demise anyway.

    All Apologies Nirvana This should hopefully clear all my sins to those in attendance. Living was hard, and I'm sorry for whatever I did to hurt you. "I'll take all the blame..."

    Redemption Song (Live) Bob Marley Would've been a perfect closer, but my inner Loki won't allow it. Plus, apologies and now redemption? How awesome was I? (not very) "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery / None but ourselves can free our minds..." And a free mind is the greatest thing we can ever achieve.

    The End of an Act Trey Parker "Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies? / I guess Perl Harbor sucked, / Just a little bit more then I miss you..." So fucking perfect an ending to my life I can't even stand it.

"What song will you play at your funeral?" - I'll be dead, so probably an extended version of John Cage's 4'33. Unless I specify in my will that my corpse be rigged up to a complicated series of pulleys and mechanically manipulated into a 'one man band' version of something like Mockingbird; cymbals crashing between my knees, lifeless arms swinging at a banjo and a mouth organ, controlled via liberal chest compressions (to be administered by my widow).

I'm already on the phone to my solicitor. Thanks for the inspiration.

You know, KC old pal, from the way it's shaping up, yours may the first funeral where they could make a tidy profit n' pre book tickets. :o

We're only half way, and yet, at who else's shindig could you cry yourself dry, get laid, get loaded, get in a fight, prize a cold dead dink from a cold dead hand, and contract your own fatal disease all in the space couple o' hours?

And I especially like the Robert Johnson pick, by the way. If I'm honest, I couldn't name track from track, but it's one of those CD's that I would always just hit random + |>, then just fall back and let me head hit the pillow. Staring back up behind me through the window, at a night time panaromic, with that strange old claustrophobic wails, stretching beyond those distant, claustrophobic confines of their recordings, it kinda all clicks into place. Few songs can strip it all away like Johnson. Perfect sound.

I was wondering too, I think I remember you watched the Six Feet Under finales not too long ago, is that right? I recall the unusuall way that a certain character's death, and whole subsequent funeral sequence hit me me harder that I expected, especially as someone who's not neccasarily prone to emotional outbursts, elicited from TV shows, I'm wondering if it figured in your picking All Apologies? I guess it's a testement to the way it was done, because I know it was one of the first references that came to my head when first thinking this thing over.

Anyhows, I feel a little guilty to wade in with a post, and yet not list owt of my own, but as usually the case, I'm more interested in reading alla y'all's than kind of coming up with my own over here. If real life offers me the grace to do such things as pick my own funeral songs, then I hope I grasp it, somehow, but untill then, it's just too easy to get lost in a the breadth of decisions like this, I'll inevitably continue to mull it over a little, but I may have to just stand awkwardly, stare out of the window with a gently confused expression, enjoy the continental cheese dips and complimentary buffet, and chalk another one up to online indecision...
