    My mate had Spirit in the Sky (Norman Greenbaum version), the church was absolutely packed, the look on everyone’s faces! He’d told me a few months earlier in what I thought was a bit of a morbid conversation at the time that that was the song he wanted!

    My choice too.

    Or Mogwai – Scotland’s Shame. Not that I’m a Scot, or shameful, just a great piece of calming music.

    Wendy loved Runrig; she said it was the soundtrack to her life. It seemed fitting to play Runrig at her funeral. We entered to Angels from the Ashes which is gentle and poignant piano music written about grief in the context of 9/11 To leave we had Maymorning which is bold and affirming: “I’m alive again”.

    I may follow Peter Sellers’ lead and have them play something that I really hate just because I won’t be there to hear it.

    This, for me ‘Tubthumping’

    Although I have given my buddy strict instructions to Gram Parsons my body. 🙂

    A mate of mine had “feeling hot hot hot” as he went down in the crem.
    He was a real joker and gave us all his last laugh.
    Ace! Since we were in school, one of my friends has been adamant that he’s having that song – will be overjoyed to know they allow it.

    I’ve been wanting The Damned’s “Under the floor again”

    although it doesn’t really tie in with the whole cremation (then mixed with clay so everyone can make Adam Ashtrays/Effigies to take home) thing too well. For mischief, I’ve been planning on having a “property of [friend’s name]” tattoo on my rump if I get enough notice, as I’ll be having the company he works for do my undertaking – should guarantee him a few days of ridicule..

    (i’d like to squeeze Shooting At Unarmed Men’s song Peristalsis into the proceedings somewhere, as everyone loves self loathing, prob’ly better for the pub afterwards though)
    the only fragment that i could find – gets the point across..

    I would like to go out on a high, with all the people present wearing ray-bans and leather flying jackets, this playing at 11 (even better if the organist can do it)……

    Stavro Jr. is under strict instructions to make sure Highway to Hell is played as I go into the oven. Mrs. S ain’t too happy about it but she’ll need to outlive me 😈

    We seriously considered playing the version of Crossroads by Cream. One of my dads favourite songs but perhaps not massively appropriate when you consider the lyrics…

    Sandwich- thank you for Iron Horse, that’s awesome.

    <edit- ZOMG, their version of Crazy Train wins music>

    Led Zep Kashmir. I’ve loved this song forever.

    Kashmir

    Link not working, never does from here….

    EDIT: ok, maybe it IS working

    And for when I eventually take my own life… (not being morbid but time is finite and NO WAY am I going into a home)

    Comfortably Numb

    and this

    Freebird

    then on to some rock’n’roll and drinking and dancing!

    For instance…
    Strings of Life
    and
    Florence
    and
    Back to Life
    and
    Everything starts with an E
    and
    I really must go to bed!

    This is the first song I thought of when i saw the thread title:

    [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbaSh8i5eyE[/video]

    and i have made the other half promise to play this as they dish out my ashes to be scattered by my family and friends and their favourite spots:

    Maybe this should be a separate thread but if my life flashes before my eyes when I die I want Nimrod to be the soundtrack:
