30-Day Song Challenge, Day 24 - A Song that You Want to Play at Your Funeral
The title makes me laugh, because even though it’s technically correct, it sounds like I’m going to play the song, which makes it less of a funeral. In any case, I feel like I wouldn’t want to have something that made people cry. If they are sad because they miss me, they will cry, anyway; there’s no sense in torturing them. I like to make my friends laugh, but playing a funny song would probably be a little tacky, although to have everyone whistle along to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” would be freakin’ AWESOME. But a song that refers to death would also be too obvious, so “Dead Man’s Party”, “Funeral for a Friend” or “See You on the Other Side” are out--sorry Oingo Boingo, Elton John and Ozzy Osbourne.
I think the best course of action would be to play an uplifting song, a song that brings joy. Not some cheesy crap like “I Believe I Can Fly”, but a song you can dance to. Maybe a song you can dance to that starts out quiet and soars to a gospel crescendo, along with a jammin’ beat. Something that people from my generation will know and remember fondly from their developing years.
I wanna play “Like a Prayer” by Madonna at my funeral!!!!
Here's the last one, in case you missed it!
