'Many Rivers to Cross' - Epic!!!
What about this one...
"**** You" by Dr. Dre
A guy a used to live next to had sadly lost one of his legs when hit by a car. He was a drummer and was really into his music. One day I woke up and he had died in a fire in his car whilst listening to music. It really shook me up. I remember just listening to a few songs that his band used to play. This one especially still makes me think of him.
Somethings burning by the stone roses!!
I'd quite like You can't have everything by Django Bates, the audience can sing along
Me, Echo Beach by Martha And The Muffins.
Wifey, Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House and Time Of Your Life by Green Day.
Strangely, we've had this conversation several times.
Now I don't like to be morbid (lie), but I think you need something to convey the solemnity and earth shattering severity of your passing. One that doesn't trivialise the grief of those left behind. So...
Summoning of the muse, Dead Can Dance.
Flow free my tears, the policeman said....
Mostly balanced, you know the correct title for that Green Day song is 'Good Riddance'
Bryan Adams...18 till I die
Played at a mates funeral after a fatal jet ski accident. It was his favourite song. Seems to sum up a lot of people on here too
Simple Minds, Don't you (forget about me).
The Wind Cries Mary - Hendrix
Is it that rather than being morbid, we would want to consider what one song could surmise our lives?
Strange thread, the subject about which I do not want to think about too much.
However, songs that come to mind straight away are:
"IT" by Prince on the "Sign 'O' the times" album
"Country" by Paul Weller on the Wild Wood ablum is just utterly beautiful.
But, for pure awesomeness..
"Ascent, an ending" By Brian Eno is just wonderful
I've buried too many of my own, its a terrible thing, and not a subject to dwell on, imo.
But the subject of beatiful music ?, well, thats someting else.
'Breaking the law' by Judas Priest perhaps.......

Chasing Rainbows by Shed Seven
Good choice. Top tune.
I'd go for 'Going Home' -Theme from Local Hero by Dire Straits.
Been at a cremation a few years ago and the song played as the coffin went into the flames was the Doors "Come on Baby light my fire".
His own choice and wish, what a legend he was, wanted people to laugh and not cry at his funeral....
