    Well, when I die I will have the song 4'33" play. It will be the saddest, yes most serene song ever to play...

    Spiritual - Johnny Cash
    Going Down to Die - Danzig
    Garden - Pearl Jam

    At some point... Back in Black - AC/DC would have to be played but it's not really something I think about all that much tbh..

    Despite a lot of people's idea that I'm all gothy or emo-y (yeah they're words.) I don't have a tendancy to be all morbid and think of stuff like this.

    Dream Theater - The spirit carries on
    Cradle of filth - Damned in any language followed by Better to reign in hell
    Dimmu Borgir - Kings of the Carnival creation (just because i love the song)
    all of that would jsut be a warmup though... they'd prep the crowd, and leave only the people that really know me...
    the grand finale would be some 15 minute remix of Slayer's Disciple blended with Pantera's Cemetary gates

    Something offensive, heavy, screamo, inappropriate ... so yeah, just like me really!
    Never thought about it really. I do know I want to be taken to a taxidermist when I die though, get stuffed and sat on the sofa, I can still go on family holidays and everything. Plus I can be paraded around the funeral hall and it will be like I never left. (I will also have a string on my back with pre recorded comments)

    Joe: Hannah, what music would you want playing at your funeral?
    Joe's Girlfriend: Oh, I dunno. I gotta do a poo.

    * Metallica - Outlaw Torn(S&M Version)
    * Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy

    Still Alive, by Jonathan Coulton. No, really - it's in my will and everything. Yes, it'll piss off the people I leave behind - that's the point.

    Picture the scene: sombre mourners gathered at the graveside. As the casket is laid to rest, a haunting voice strikes up: "This was a triumph... I'm making a note here: huge success." :D

    I can just envision the reverend frantically dicking around with the remote turning up the volume and such.

    Good stuff.

    I'd like Comfy in Nautica by Panda Bear myself. Epic.

    I can't decide what song or tracklist i'd want playing, and i don't know if i want to.
    It's the same as the eulogy, as i know what things i would and wouldn't like to hear, but i'm not going to force or even request people to say what i'd like them to.

    Cremation is a tempting option, i like the idea of being scattered from a cliff to an ocean or something like that, as oposed to just being a burden, taking up some space on a shelf or in a field somewhere. My closest friends and family can decide what is said, and what is played.

    Joe, you never cease to paint Hannah in the best possible light on these forums. :)

    Personally, I don't care, as long as I live long enough to attend Joe's rocking funeral.

    Du DUHH! Du DUHH! Du dum de dum de dum de du-du-du-du-du de dum de dum dum dum dum, dur dur dur dur

    WAH WA WAH WAH WAAAAAH, WA WAH WAH WAAAAAAAAH!
