My Funeral Song (A Long Time From Now).

I was asked today about what song I would want played at my funeral ... and here was my choice. Mostly because it is my favorite song in the world ... such soul. But also because it is a song of mourning. You'd think I would pick something more upbeat for my guests ... knowing that their hearts will be heavy ... but alas, this is my choice for now. Then afterward, perhaps they can play "It's a Beautiful Day" by U2 ... just to remind everyone that life is so damn wonderful ... and to embrace it fully....

What song would you pick???

Good choice! Perfect really.

You've got me thinking now. I really have no idea, but will be mulling this over for awhile now. Hmmmm.....Something sad and mellow? Sweet and angelic? Hip and fun? Don't know....I'll have to get back to you on this one.

I have a whole list, but at the top of it is:

I hope you had the time of your life - by green day.

Definitely Leonard Cohen's Bird on a Wire

"if i, if I have been unkind,
I hope that you can just let it go by..."

But I love your pick -- such a great song!
