Is That all There Is?.....

I wan't this played at my Funeral


Which song or music would you choose?


  1. Congratulations Ms Congeniality!

    As for the music, I'll have a second thought ...

  2. Ohhh that's a good one!

    Once Before I Go as done by Patti Labelle. I'm seeing a bar room party rather than a funeral. I'll be the one in the brass urn; one last party before I go.

  3. I love that song. Had not seen a video of her singing it. Thanks.

    I'm not having a funeral service as I would be the only one there, so there's no point.

  4. Dear Mago

    Thankyou, I'm still a little tipsy and emotional. Have a think about some music and get back to me ... I'm just an inquisitive and curious soul...

    Dear Hayward

    Patti Labelle, Great choice! I'll be looking that one up on the tube before bed time,
    Haven't heard it for years...

    Cocktails all around Dhaaarling...

    Dear Xl

    There are a few clips out there but this was the gem...

    No Funeral?

    Then we shall all just have to hold a wake in your honour...

  5. When all is said and done by Abba


    You are there by Blossom Dearie

  6. I would like to put the fun back into funeral with a rousing chorus of "Ding-Dong The Witch Is Dead" upon entering the Crematorium. I'd have "Electric Six - "Danger! High Voltage" played as the curtains open and my leopard print open-topped coffin shuffles off to the oven (or perhaps Carl Orff's "O Fortuna" I haven't decided yet.)Then, I'll finish off with "I'm Going Home" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's going to be exquiste.

  7. That is a good one.

    There are so many good songs out there that I'd like people to hear if it's my funeral. But these four are the first ones that come to mind. I want people to leave feeling inspired to live their lives to the fullest.

    I hope you Dance by Lee Ann Womack

    Live like you were dying by Tim McGraw

    True Colors by Cindi Lauper

    Proud by Heather Small

    I'm sure I'll think of more. I hate depressing songs at funerals. We're all ready sad. No need to make us feel worse!

  8. Dear Pete

    Great choices... 'Thankyou for the Music' was a nearly option.

    Dear Mitzi
    Spectacular darling I would expect nothing less, A true showgirl!
    Mandatory dress code, fishnets, bustierre's and boa's...
    book me a seat!

    Dear Eros
    Has anyone ever told you what a genuinely thoughtful soul you are?

    I love your choices and am adding them to a playlist...
    Personally I think funerals should be a celebration of the person.
    And the music chosen should reflect this...

    Every one deserves a happy ending...even when there time is up...

  9. The last funeral I attented was of Jeanne and there was no music. I was so beside myself that I would not have heared it anyway and ... shit I don't want to cry here and make stains.
    Last time I heared music at a funeral was that of my old friend Ralf, something by Pink Floyd "Think you can tell, heaven from hell ..." when I heared the first notes I knew that he choose it, took him a week to die our friend Kay was always there I remember sitting in a cold concrete church crying and ahte pink floyd now ...

    I want a friend to give an eulogy and after that some ACDC, Velvet Underground or - I guess I'd prefer it with Gin and Tequilla - Doors ... yes, L.A.Woman, and finally the Alambama Song - that would make a nice threesome.

  10. Dear Mago

    Funerals can bring back very powerful memories and reflections on the life now gone from us. Cry as much or as little as you need to and worry not about staining...

    Your song choices are all strong 'beat driven" anthems.
    just the thing for making a grand entrance or departure to the otherside.

    A very dear friend of mine had chosen This for her funeral...

    There was not a dry seat in the house....
