Post Music You Want At Your Funeral
I'm sure that, somewhere on this forum there's a thread on this already, but i couldn't find it; so, I'll have to make one anew.


Listening to this again, I have to say: the SWEETEST, SADDEST, most POIGNANT, YEARNING music i've ever heard in my life or ever WILL hear.

Perfect for the big sayonara:

I want them to play Gottes Tod ~ Das Ich or maybe something by Sopor Aeternus at my funeral. I've already been told that it doesn't matter what *I* want since I'll be dead, though. My husband is going to play Requiem by Mozart if I go first. :roll: Pretty song, but it's totally not 'me'.

And I seriously want someone to blast Burnin' Love by Elvis in the crematorium while I'm being cremated!

:lol:

I wonder who you would pay for that?

"Dawn of the Iconoclast" by Dead can dance to be really dramatic, then shatter the atmosphere with Weezers "The greatest man that ever lived" :)
I think it would sum me up quite well, and also, if I'm actually buried alive through some horrible mistake, at least I'd die laughing.

The One song I know for SURE that I would want to be played at my funeral would be From My Hands by VNV Nation.

The other songs are currently undecided, but I know that my furneral would sound more like a Goth, Metal, and EBM concert more than anything else!

However From My hands is the ONLY SONG that I want if nothing else can be played.

No way! Have you seen those funeral processions in New Orleans?

Everyone could dance down the street to it to the graveyard!

Hmm. I'd probably go with something calm and beautiful:

Love Spirals Downward - Stir About the Stars
Alan Parsons Project - Old and Wise
The Cure - The Same Deep Water As You

I now have a very interesting picture in my mind: The New Orleans goth shuffle parade. Feet scuffling, arm flailing black lines of shoegazing Murphyite mourners in front of a band undead, the hearse a feathered, spiral spiked monstrosity pulled by four horses decked out in black and silver.

Dead to the World by Nightwish...such a great song

End of All Hope by Nightwish....Am gone so it means that hope for me has ended and what better way to sent me to my Master in Heaven than playing this song...

And maybe they can also play piece my Mozart and Bach of course,they will make sway me to my resting place in peace...

A mosh pit wake... Not a bad idea at all!

As for me, I want my funeral guests to be entertained by a prodigy in a tuxedo sitting at a grand piano and banging out Gounod's spritely yet creepy Funeral March of a Marionette.

That's cool! I never thought of that. It sounds much more lively altogether.

Letalis, that is exactly what I was picturing! :lol: It would also be awesome if everyone wore capes as they were dancing along so they could spread and lower them like wings.
