Let It Be , In My Life ......The Joker.a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 Well, that's what SUNI wants to be played. Not sure my friends and family will respect my wishes, though.

Oh and btw, I was kidding about The Joker being played. "I really like your peaches wanna shake your tree", not exactly funeral material. Well, any Steve Miller Band song isn't funeral material.a-hard-days-night-john-7

 

Thursday night your stockings needed mending.

Correct! Anyone could've guessed that, it's like the ONLY song he is known for.

In My Life . Ellie and I have agreed to have the following on a joint gravestone:

"And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make"

Hmm. Well, I wouldn't necessarily want either of them to be played, necessarily; but it'd be nice to have the opportunity to play either "Carnival Of Light " or the 28-minute "Helter Skelter " - both of which having been legitimately released several years prior to my death, I hope!

Failing that, I'd probably go for "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)" in the hope that my mourners would get a laugh out of it. (And hey, maybe they could all toss shovelsful of dirt in the grave, and synchronize the shoveling with Mal Evans' spade-in-gravel performance!) I think ALL funerals should have some laughter, presuming that the deceased had any sense of humour at all in life, of course.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Explains a lot. 😀

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Probably George's Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea because it's impossible not to smile when listening to that song, or maybe All Together Now , I would just want the entire procession to be singing "all together now, (all together now), all together now, (all together now)." I agree with vonbontee that funerals should at least have some laughter or joy, and I would really like a New Orleans type funeral because those people know how to have a good time regardless of the circumstances.

Sunii's obviously pretty young! (And not Canadian.) That song's godawful, but someone could assemble a real nice Greatest Hits collection out of his 1979-1985 output.

I always thought Summer of '69 was more popular than the other Bryan Adams song.  Or Heaven, but most people know the cover of it only.

 

Anyways, I think Ob La Di Ob La Da would be cool, cliche, but cool. They played it at my friends dad funeral.  Same with Spirit in The Sky, I will go out Hunter S Thompson style.   If it has to be a Beatles song though, definetely Ob La Di Ob La Da.

Free As A Bird is the only funeral song I can think of at the moment that I would want played. But a lot of the previously mentioned ones are great choices.
