I assume I'll be cremated, so "Firestarter" by the Prodigy.

That tune is not only apt for the occasion, but it will literally shake the room with bass and my mourners just won't be able to have that 'Amazing Grace' style sad moment, I would hope that it made them laugh.

Failing that, a looped recording of me saying "Only fools are enslaved by time and space! Party On!"

Actually on second thought I think if possible I would want to have this song and video!
Seriously, as I am probably a lot closer to this scenario than most of you, and it really tells a lot about how my life is so connected to Lost... and in particular about all the Lost friends I have made here,and on LT. Don't worry affraid I am not about to kick the bucket any-time soon. Well at least not till long after Lost has its conclusion. Wink
Thanks wtfsignmeup and ProfOzone.

F'in beautiful. I love it!!!

This is not really something i've put much thought into. Planning my own funeral and all. But who wouldn't love the entire Wish You Were Here album played? If i had to pick fast, i'd probably say the soundtrack to Breaking the Waves.(its a beautiful movie if you've not seen it.)
1. In A Broken Dream - Python Lee Jackson
2. Hot Love - T-Rex
3. Child In Time - Deep Purple
4. Suzanne - Leonard Cohen
5. Virginia Plain - Roxy Music
6. All The Way From Memphis - Mott The Hoople
7. He's Gonna Step On You Again - John Kongos
8. Whisky In The Jar - Thin Lizzy
9. Whiter Shade Of Pale - Procul Harum
10. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
11. Cross Eyed Mary - Jethro Tull
12. Siciliana - J.S. Bach

And for a final good ‘ol’ red-neck-y send out, Mojo Nixon’s – You Can’t Kill Me

(Lemme see if I can put a youtube link in for that one)

What a weird thing to think about, but I never thought about it! I love this post! You guys have some pretty awesome picks. Mine, mine is Donovan-"Catch The Wind"

The first line is the best line:

"In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty, I want to be in the warm heart of your lovin' mind."

I know what song I want played at my funeral it is check your tears at the door by drivinin cryin. Both my twin and me want this played. It is about not crying for me because I am with my friends. I am not afraid of death and in my past prayed and tried to hasten it upon my self ( no fears I am past that now) but I do know I do not want any one to cry over me I will be where I have longed to be for many years now. Once again do not worry I am now with my soul mate and all is fantastic!! I have moved past that part of my past bust still I do not want any tears. I think life is continuous even after death .... parallel realities ....

Another One Bites the Dust..just went back and saw someone else posted that as well...

I have already told my husband I don't care what happens after I die. He should do whatever pleases him, our friends, and our families.

Actually, since I'm a HUGE David Bowie fan, and I LOVE this song "515 The Angels Have Gone"

5:15, I'm changing trains
This little town, let me down
This foreign rain, brings me down

5:15 train overdue
Angels have gone, no ticket
I'm jumping tracks, I'm changing towns

We never talk anymore, forever I will adore you

5:15, all of my life
Angels have gone, I'm changing trains
Angels like them, thin on the ground

All of my life
All legs and wings, strange sandy eyes
5:15, train overdue, angels have gone

We never talk anymore, forever I will adore you
Cold station, all of my life, forever, I'm out here forever

I have to thank WTF for this post... because of it, I used my funeral song "Catch the Wind" in my latest episode "Ghost in the Machine" and I think it really intensified the mood of what was going on... thanks WTF!

I went to visit my family for this past Christmas, and just a couple days after I'd gone back home, my dad started feeling a bit under the weather. He'd always kept himself in good shape: eating fairly well, going for regular jogs, never a smoker, not much of a drinker. It took a month of test after test, scan after scan, till he was diagnosed with cancer. In no time at all, he went from healthier than a lot of 56 year old guys to weak and powerless due to the heavy chemo treatments. I talked with him regularly on the phone during those months, but, as getting time off work for me is like pulling teeth, and as my family lives on the other side of the state, I hadn't gotten out to visit while he was in the hospital. His treatments were done, and he was looking forward to getting better and having an appetite again, when all of a sudden his body just started shutting down. I dropped everything and rushed out there just in time to spend his last hour on this earth with him. On April 25, just 4 months from the time we were all together - not a care in the world, he was gone.

The next morning, this song kept playing through my head. My dad always loved Jim Croce, and this particular song was written by Croce for his newborn son. It's not really my funeral song, but we played it at his...

He always loved Neil Young, too, and this one's been playing in my head a lot since then, too...
