Apocalyptica - Nothing Else Matters.

That's the only one I know for sure. Mebbe Elgar 'cello concerto 1st movement.

ah good choice. thats the classical covers band of Metallica , aye.

out of interest i got the idea for this from my *significant other's* 100% certain request for "the power of love" by frankie goes to hollywood.

for me i'd like "lie back in the sun" by Spiritualized. jist cus its the greatest song ever.

- just for the look on my mums face ( if she's there) .

I used to harp on to the wife about not having a religous funeral with hymns and shit and some minister whos never met me babbling on about what a great guy I was and what a significant contribution I made to the world and all that bullshit.

I also told her what I wanted played at the funeral but changed my mind every couple of months, at last I came to the conclusion that it didnt matter a fuck....I'll be dead!!

The funeral is for the sake of the living so she can do what she wants, she knows me quite well so I dont think she'd do anything that would upset me too much.

G...

'Funeral Tango' by Scott Walker - for these lyrics -

Ah, I can see them now

Clutching a handkerchief

And blowing me a kiss

Discreetly asking how

How come he died so young

Or was he very old

Is the body still warm

Is it already cold

All doors are open wide

They poke around inside

My desk, my drawers, my trunk

There's nothing left to hide

Some love letters are there

And an old photograph

They've l aid my poor soul bare

And all they do is laugh

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha - ha, ha, ha!

Ah, I can see them all

So formal and so stiff

Like a sergeant-at-arms

At the policeman's ball

And everybody's pushing

To be the first in line

Their hearts upon their sleeves

Like a ten-cent valentine

The old women are there

Too old to give a damn

They even brought the kids

Who don't know who I am

They're thinking about the price

Of my funeral bouquet

What they're thinking isn't nice

'Cause now they'll have to pay

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha - ha, ha, ha

Ah, I see all of you

All of my phony friends

Who can't wait till it ends

Who can't wait till it's through

Oh, I see all of you

You've been laughing all these years

And now all that you have left

Are a few crocodile tears

Ah, you don't even know

That you're entering your hell

As you leave my cemetery

And you think you're doing well

With that one who's at your side

You're as proud as you can be

Ah, she's going to make you cry

But not the way you cried for me

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha - ha, ha, ha

Ah, I can see me now

So cold and so alone

As the flowers slowly die

In my field of little bones

Ah, I can see me now

I can see me at the end

Of this voyage that I'm on

Without a love, without a friend

Now all this that I see

Is not what I deserve

They really have a nerve

To say these things to me

No girls, just bread and water

All your money you must save

Or there'll be nothing left for us

When you're dead and in your grave

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha - HA HA!

Haha, true class in a casket, while the other fresh corpses roll in their resting places!

All I know, is that I'd want to make everyone as miserable and venegeful as I did on my death bed. Screw this Jeff Buckley business.
