A Song That I Want To Play At My Funeral

Wow.  Nice question.

When I die, I don’t want people to be sad.  Well, I would hope that some people would be sad, but I don’t want my funeral to be a depressing affair, any more than it will be naturally.  I don’t want to force sadness.  “Oh, you’re not sad enough?  Well, here, listen to this and then maybe you’ll be sufficiently depressed.  MORE SADNESS.”  I want people to celebrate, not that I’m dead (Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead!), but that I lived and that whatever happened to me to make me…dead, I’m in a better place now.

Plus, I’m pretty evil, sooo…

ZOMBIE THEMED FUNERAL!!!!  Full costume.  No excuses.  Who knows? Maybe I’ll even make a guest appearance!

Living Dead Girl by Rob Zombie!  Yay!  Fun for EVERYONE!  EVEN THE DEAD PEOPLE!

(another ‘believe it or not’ is that I was a pretty big Rob Zombie fan in high school, although by looking at me you’d never know it, and, truth be told, I still find Hellbilly Deluxe to be a thoroughly and delightfully evil album)

    • You’re a slave to the money, then you die.

      I probably wouldn’t choose to have a funeral. Two of my grandparents had very simple parties instead, and that was their wishes, and it was much better. No sombre ceremony, no procession to a cemetery, just a gathering of close friends and family to remember, with sandwiches. That’s it.

  1. I want the entire Jonathan Coulton songlist played at my party. That 127 songs. Start with “Code Monkey” and “The Future Soon,” and end with “Re: Your Brains” and “Still Alive.”
