If you knew you were going to die, what song would you want to be played at your funeral?

I’m not sure if the lyrical content in the songs are all that funeral appropriate, but I would have to chose either “Desperado” by Eagles or “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson.

I just want to see my Asian parents listening to this at my funeral.

The starting guitar portion of this (20 seconds to 1 minute 45 seconds)would be interesting to hear at a funeral.

Breaking the mood, I feel like there’s some kind of evil subliminal message in that song.

This will be played as my open coffin is placed in the middle of a roller rink and my friends and family roller skate around it.

“Mars” from Gustav Holst’s The Planets. “Pluto” would be more appropriate for a funeral, but it’s my funeral, so Mars it is.

Gotta make the people know how I died.

This is not a matter of Hope.
These songs are being played at my funeral; they are even In my will.

Mad World by Tears for Fears.

Because it’s a funeral, damnit! People have to feel uneasy. Also, Donnie Darko reference.

@Addicted to Memes – I think you mean “Mad World (Tears for Fears Cover)” by Gary Jules for the Donnie Darko reference (and Gears of War trailer).

Something meme related and unoriginal.
