    my best friend and I one day when we were bored created our funeral playlists - a list of songs we'd like played at our funeral. morbid, yes I know. but this song was #1 on both our lists which was awesome b/c we wrote them independently.

    what songs would your funeral playlist include?

    the funny thing is i was thinking about the same thing a couple days ago. if i were to die, what kind of music would my good friends play at my funeral? first of all, if they knew me, any and all Coldplay would do but i Radioheads Videotape would be up there for sure. the Basement version. this being said, not being out, my real friends would never know who i really am/was.

    And this is to make the attendees want to join the deceased right?

    With all due respect .....The OP question was about the music I would play for myself...not about what the attendees would play......My family, friends, and peers know my tastes in music are all over the place and certain songs have meaning tied to time, place and events...so no YOU won't get my selections....this isn't about YOu...just like I wouldn't play 90% of what you have on your profile playlist.....it is personal choice.

    how odd.. I was just working this out last week. You´re not getting the whole list, but I am presently debating whether it would be too sick to have this during my cremation. The end with the interpolated Cs is awesome.



    If you know why, you need to write to me. icon_biggrin.gif

    Hide and seek by Imogen Heap



    I already told my mom. And she asked me why and I told her because like everyone in the O.C. died to that song.

    That's a good one too. I formally add it to my list. (My list is pretty much going to be an Imogen Heap discography)
