What song do you want played at your funeral?

Something by Chopin, perhaps "Funeral March."

I'd feel embarrassed if "Paradise City" or a song of similar nature was played (well I wouldn't, of course, but still); I think it's such a cheesy, white trash thing to do. No offence to the person who said that, btw, it's just my opinion on it. The only contemporary song I could imagine being played is T.Rex's "

." It's supposedly about reincarnation - although given the nonsensical nature of Marc Bolan's lyrics and his tendency to lie a lot about his song's subjects and whatnot, that might not be completely evident in its lyrics, or even true at all, for that matter - so I guess it could be considered a fitting song for a funeral, and I think its strings are really beautiful and moving, for some reason. Although something by Sam Cooke or Leonard Cohen could also work, I suppose.

Open - Knockin' On Heaven's Door [live] - Guns N' Roses

Middle - Estranged - Guns N' Roses

Closer - Paradise City - Guns N' Roses

What're you doing for the encore?

I rise from the dead to start the crowd in singing "We Are The Champions"


Now that I look back on what I posted, I still love it... but I didn't really think about the fact 30 minutes would just be SONGS.
