What song would you choose for your funeral?

I'd go with some piano pieces (like Thomas Newman's 'Any other name')
but also 'Iris' by the Goo Goo dolls and 'Chasing Cars' by snow patrol.
Probably a lot of folk music as well... Loreena McKennit and Heather Dale and so on.

"Shine On You Crazy Diamond, parts 1-7" by Pink Floyd and "Movin' On Up" by Primal Scream, so far. I'll think of more within the next how ever many years I have left of my life. I'm only 16... hopefully I don't end up dying early. :lol:

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"- Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole ONLY HIS COVER, not some cheesy Wizard of OZ crap. I want my "funeral" to celebrate my life, not mourn my death, and IZ captures that mood perfectly.

After the Storm by Mumford & Sons. Most peaceful song I've ever heard.

When I Get Where I'm Going and Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) are a couple of sad songs I would like at my funeral.
And Bohemian Rhasphody maybe? I don't know. I'm not sure what happier songs to have.

Nine, or Sunday Morning at a Funeral, both by La Dispute.

Or something by the Beatles. Let it Be, maybe. It's hard to choose.

I would have a primary school orchestra of bagpipes, recorders and violins playing...

Ahh it doesn't matter what they play. I'll be dead and won't have to suffer anymore.

Oh, that came out wrong. I won't be able to suffer, so the thought of such an orchestra is very pleasing.

I'd choose something annoying. Make the ceremony as painful as possible so that people remember it. I won't be around to hear it.

Somewhat, but that's all the Dutch I know :blush: I wish I could speak it, it's such a pretty language (Except when spoken by people from Amsterdam, then it sounds nasty ;p )

My thoughts exactly!! I speak Flemish dutch because I live in antwerp and it always sounds weird to me when I hear someone from Amsterdam. Dutchmen that live closer to the border (between Belgium and Holland) speak in a softer (and in my opinion) more beautiful way. (No offense)
But Dutch is a pretty language, that's a fact :D

Of course, the way they speak in eastern Gelderland will always be my favourite dialect. Just a personal preference ;p perhaps I have even more of a soft spot for Dutch Low Saxon [link]
