    What song would you have played at your funeral/service?

    I know this is a little bit morbid, but I woke up last night thinking about this.

    Jeff Buckley cover of an old country song:



    How many times have you heard someone say,
    "If I had money, I would do things my way."
    But little they know, that it's so hard to find
    one rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind.

    Money can't buy back all your youth when you're old,
    a friend when you're lonely, or peace to your soul.
    The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times
    compared to the man with a satisfied mind.

    When my life is over and my time has run out,
    my friends and my loved ones, I will leave there's no doubt.
    But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
    I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.
    But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
    I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.

    Funeral for a Friend - decided that a long time ago...Saw Elton on the Yellow Brick Road Tour. Not guitars, but really powerful. at the start...

    "Good Riddance" at the end.

    Something for everybody!
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    My wife will probably have recordings of me playing fingerstyle acoustic.

    I coordinated my late step-father's wake with him - while he was in his last days. That song was his choice as well.

    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    I don't know what song I want played, but I do know that I want puppies and kittens handed out to people as they leave my services, and them told in public that it was my last dying wish for them to have one. I will find out who likes dogs... and then give them a kitten, I will find out who likes cats and give them a dog. I will hope there is an afterlife where I can comfortably watch them curse my name!

    Well I guess I just decided what song it'll be. Somebody notify the Neptune Society.

    Just for scientific reasons... as an experiment... see if you can click on all the links in the first page of this thread,.... at the same time... and tell me you don't wish you were already dead.
