#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.
