First: 

The Long And Winding RoadIn My Life; an instrumental. Then an instrumental of Let It Be (if I find one). And then the refrain of I'm Only Sleeping.

And the End of the song 'The End'

In the End: 'Goodbye' from the song Mother

If I am shot, The Guns of Brixton. If I drown, London Calling. If I die any other way, Let It Be and Just Like Starting Over.

If that ever happens to me, I want these 2 songs to be played at my funeral. But knowing my sisters they would say no. They always want to spoil my plans...a-hard-days-night-paul-10

"Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds, "Your Kiss is on my List" by Hall & Oates (my Mom hates that song and she'd probably laugh a little if she heard it at my funeral), "In My Life", "Let it Be" and ending with the end of "The End" would be amazing (sorry, just had to steal that idea!)

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

As for Beatlessongs I want The Long And Winding Road and Let it Be. Maybe Across The Universe too.

 

For the rest.. I had a whole list of songs that make me cry but I've lost it. I can only remember Imagine (how predictable) and Annie's song by John Denver (that was played at my grandpa's funeral and it always makes me cry)

These are a few that I want played:

- In My Life

- Goodybye Cruel World (Pink Floyd, The Wall)

- Speak To Me/Breathe/Eclipse (PF, Dark Side Of The Moon) - not very funeral-y though

- Time (Same as above)

- Fearless (Meddle)

- an instrumental of Something and then The End

and then I want a Sitar player to play for the rest of the day

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I'm not 100% certain about this, but I think that I would want "I'll Follow The Sun" and "Long, Long, Long" to be played. Then, and this one might sound a bit strange, "All Together Now". "All Together Now" would probably make at least one person smile (this person was the one who introduced me to that particular song).
