You requested one rush song at your funeral. Ironic titles can be fun or a lyric you know of or be serious. Mine is face up

The Garden !  I think it might be a popular choice in this thread. The music and lyrics are both really beautiful and fitting.

At my end, I will go to the beginning!

Garden Road!

Today I see the answer that I was wrong
Oh man, my questions on this garden road

One day this path will be free
And this garden road is for you and me :blaze:


:P

Not the suicidal type yet but if i ever do my funeral tune will be -

The sleep is still in my eyes
The dream is still in my head
I heave a sigh and sadly smile
And lie a while in bed
I wish that it might come to pass
Not fade like all my dreams...

Just think of what my life might be
In a world like I have seen!
I don't think I can carry on
Carry on this cold and empty life

My spirits are low in the depths of despair
My lifeblood...
...Spills over...

Earl, just for kicks, at my funeral I’m going to rise from a coffin and bite a chunk of flesh out of your arm!

That’s the way that Lady Luck dances!

headlong flight has some good lyrics about looking back at life. plus it kicks ass and isn't all boohoo...

I have stoked the fire on the big steel wheels
Steer the airship right across the stars
I learned to fight, I learned to love, I learned to feel
Oh I wish that I could live it all again


Then at the end of the ceremony, I would request 'Winona's Big Brown Beaver' by Primus. Only those that know my sense of humor would appreciate it.

Then I would request my cremated remains be shot into the air with fireworks that night.
