Default Always look on the bright side of life

By Eric Idle, from "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" (and Jack Nickelson in "As Good As It Gets"), always makes me feel better.

Here's a handful of my picks (maybe not for an actual funeral, but good to listen to while thinking of a lost one)

Classical:
"Requiem" by Amadeus Mozart
"Adagio For Strings" by Samuel Barber

Country/Alt Country:
"So Long" by The Handsome Family
"We Live A Long Time To Get Old" redone by Robbie Fulks
"Unchained" by Johnny Cash
"Steal The Crumbs" by Uncle Tupelo
"He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones

Rock/Ect...
"All Alone" by Mad Season
"In My Time Of Dying" by Led Zeppelin
"Fade To Black" by Metallica
"That Day Is Done" by Elvis Costello
"Lucky Day" by Tom Waits
"(Wish I Could) Hideaway" by CCR

"I Wish I was In New Orleans" by Tom Waits
For the victims of hurricane Katrina.

Nick Cave? Well, if we are want to have some fun with it, why not something like "Last Caress" by the Misfits? We will have to listen to the stuff in post #1 over and over when we end up where we are going...

Andrea Boccelli is a disgrace to the art of bel canto.

Konnichiwa,

For me:

Reinhard Mey "Mein Testament"

(German Singer/Songwriter, excellent, babelfish translation completely looses the plot though)

followed by:

Meatloaf "Bat out of Hell"

Sayonara

Just in case you're planning to have a funeral... in a church... like a memorial mass, you had best plan your selections from the hymnal. It may be YOUR funeral but it's THE CHURCH.

Having just been through this, selections are limited to the liturgical works. The secular stuff is "no can do".

Requested "A Mighty Fortress is Our God". Got the "Catholic" rendition. Still the same Bach tune, but no Luther was to be sung that day.

Just a word to the wise....

My sister told me she wants Alan Parsons Project "Old and Wise"

I think it is a really good choice

BTW I like your style Kuei Yang Wang, I don't know the first one but I LMAO when I read the bat out of hell.

Tony.

Funny that the catholic church still has problems with that since Luther regarded himself as catholic.
