#9 - Songs To Play At Your Funeral

Sarah McLachlan

Well done, Music Listography. You've got a list that will make everyone feel uncomfortable. Alright, I shouldn't speak for anyone else... it makes me feel extremely uncomfortable. I ain't very good with the whole death thing. Maybe that comes with age? But we're not going to get into chats about my issues with mortality. We're here to pick some songs for my funeral! There are two different scenarios that I could go with, so I'm going to break this into two parts; depressing and happy. If you pick super sad songs, you're gonna make people cry. That's why I'd pick super sad songs. However, if I'm not really bitter before I bite the bullet, maybe I'd go with some upbeat numbers. But do I pick songs that really meant something to me? Or do I pick a song like 'Bad Romance' and pay to have people force anyone attending to dance? So many choices. Here's what I've come up with...

Songs to Play at Your Funeral

A) Depressing

Peter Gabriel - Here Comes the Flood

Pearl Jam - Man of the Hour

Dixie Chicks - Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)

Coldplay - See You Soon

Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama - I Shall Not Walk Alone

Sarah McLachlan - Angel

Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into the Dark

B) Happy

Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over

Lady Gaga - Bad Romance

Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On

Like you wouldn't laugh. Out loud. At a funeral. Shame on you!

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - Home

Foo Fighters - Best of You

Eminem - Without Me

Rebecca Black - Friday

Just to see if anyone remembers the awesomeness that was Rebecca Black.
