Inappropriate Funeral Tunes

I have strange conversations with myself occasionally. (ok, a lot) and I'm sure that I'm not the only one who OCCASIONALLY wonders, if I was dead. What music would be played at my funeral.

Apparently Another One Bites The Dust is not big, brave or clever. (who knew?)

And Relight My Fire is just tacky, allegedly.

But come on. It's a funeral, does it REALLY have to be ALL sad songs if you were the type of person in life that would find it humorous? I hope that when it is my time, (in 61 years time, as I reach orgasm with my toy boy of 78 for the third time that evening) (Tell me I'm not the only person who went, ewwwwwwwww, there?) I get at least ONe highly inappropriate song played at my funeral to make people raise at least a small smile. 

But what about you? 

Would you have played an inappropriate song at YOUR funeral? What would you like played? 

Or even perhaps a sad song (CRY PEOPLE, why don't you GODDAMN CRY?) 

Let me know what you would choose.

  1. My other half is adamant he wants The Prodigy Firestarter as his coffin slides behind the curtains.

  2. My mum wants wish me luck as you wave me goodbye at her funeral she decided on it about 20 years ago so as long as I can get the song I will play it 😃 xx

  3. I have this conversation a lot after a sad movie with my husband who tells me off for being morbid - but these things are important! Right? I want spirit in the sky blasted loudly followed by moving on up by primal scream. Loud. Good choices I think!

  4. I always say I want 'living in a box'

  5. I've had this conversation with my husband - he wants 'Bring Me Sunshine' which will just give me mental images of Morecambe and Wise skipping off stage...

    I've always said that I don't care what they do at my funeral, but I suppose I should give it a bit of thought, really

  6. Mine is I am The Resserection, my brother wants Disco Inferno! We sent my Dad out to Mr Blue Sky, people thought it was innappropriate I think he would have liked it!

  7. The best two funeral songs I have encountered at a friend and a relitives funerals were Ken Dodds Happiness and Chumbawamba's Tub thumping. Both songs were chosen to reflect the personalities and humour of the peoppe who's funeral it was, and far from being inappropriate, they were infact very moving. The down side being that both songs make me quite sad now.

  8. My best friend wants Hey Man (Now You're Really Living) by The Eels and periodically quizzes me to make sure I will remember and tell her parents.

  9. Mum wants "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life" at hers, Father-in-law wants something from The Jungle Book, and me? "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks.

  10. Friend of mine had a party for his 40th last November which was a mock funeral, themed on the song "Dress sexy for my funeral". It was as inappropriate as possible, with everyone dressed up in equally inappropriate funeral guests (Gold Diggers, Ambulance chasers, etc. It was wholly wrong but very funny and perfect for him.

  11. If I get my way ( and I am sure I will: I am raising my kids to be unafraid of death and the great beyond) I want my funeral to be as inappropriate as possible. I can remember being in floods of tears at my Grandfathers funeral, but also being enraged that they didn't play any of HIS favourite songs.
    So... The Doors: Light my Fire and Queen: The Show must go on are on my list...Otherwise I will be slamming doors and knocking teacups off tables until they re-do my funeral: properly.

  12. I wasn't allowed sex on fire for my first dance when getting married so would be pretty chuffed to hear that played!

    I also want a remote controlled knocker in the coffin that someone can keep setting off whenever it gets too quiet or solemn. I would also like to go up, not down, when they draw the curtains!

    C xx
