I want "It's raining" played at my funeral!

I may have mentioned this previously, but I have long given serious consideration to enlisting Lt. Pigeon's "Mouldy Old Dough" for mine. Then again, it would be more tragic than funny if nobody turned up!

I can't believe I never had this song in my arsenal before. I hum it every few weeks, fer-ib's-sake!

Thanks for arming me, man! Now I can blast it, when it becomes neccessary.

Also...
My funeral song is "Going Home" by Jack Teagarden...
Not that I (athiest I) believe I am going "home", but I think it might provide solice to whatever sad-souls decide to witness my send-off...
And as soon as my body (assuming it is ever found) gets to the bottom of the hole - if I'm buried- I want "Dancing Queen" by ABBA to play.
Should I get cremated (my personal wish) and ashes get scattered, I want "Talkin' 'Bout The Smiling Deathporn Immortality Blues (Everyone Wants To Live Forever)" by Flaming Lips blasting out as my charred remains get sprinkled...

Hrm... I guess I oughta write up a posting about my wishes, eh? Would that be binding?

Yes. Cremation is to be preferred. If not, I demand for my remains to be interred on a site producing an abundant annual growth of psilocybe mushrooms.

Put back that which you take.
