If it had to be U2 (and there will be at least one), I'd say: Stuck or Kite. But I'd also like "I Will Remember You" by Sarah Mclachlan played.

Wake Up Dead man (Really just for the title)

me too.

A Sort of Homecoming and Kite

But I hope whoever's in charge of music accidentally plays "Big Girls are Best" for a few seconds, just because that would be funny.

I definitely want a wake not a funeral. Lots of red wine! So my choices would be:
One
October
and to party to - Discotheque

My funeral

I would just want someone to play "The End" from the doors at it. Then I would have eveyone spit on my coffin.

Is it sad that I've actually made a list of songs played at my funeral (which really isn't an accurate term, I want a celebration really)?

The U2 ones are:
*40
*A Sort of Homecoming
*Streets
*ISHFWILF
*October
*Drowning Man
*Grace


There'll hopefully be more upbeat ones during the night. This should be an opportunity for a great party in my opinion.

From the first time I listened to this song, it came to my mind that its the last song I want to hear.

Stay ( Faraway, So Close)

Hopefully they know when you die, so that nobody messes up your last minutes.

Funny you should bring this subject up, but I was only thinking about it the other day - how morbid! Anyway, I'd like to have 'Kite' played whilst I was being carried out of the church. Such a powerful song - a real tear jerker with thought provoking lyrics for such an occasion. Bono said that it's a song about "letting go of somebody you don't want to let go of" - I can't think of a more appropriate song for such a situation. It brings a lump to my throat just thinking about it.....

They say that the last sense that you lose just before you pass on from this world is your hearing. I have remembered that when near someone that was ready to die...I would also like to add this thought....I don't believe that we just die...I believe that we live forever within the lives of all we have touched, loved and interacted with in this lifetime...the music of U2 will go on forever as will my art...its something you can touch and hold and a part of me....Music is such a part of my life I would like to think that somewhere out there is a person that truly feels the same feelings as I do when they listen to a song...somewhere out there is a person thinking the exact same thougt as you are at the same time, that is why I Love U2..because their songs seem to follow within the feelings I develop in my life..they just fit!
Another time...Another Place

Interesting! I told my kids and husband some time ago that I wanted Kite played at my funeral. I was surprised to see this thread! I also think MLK is beautiful.

Liked some of the funny ideas earlier this thread...will have to give it more thought!

MLK
Walk on
Elevation

in that order - finish with a blast - really crank it up !

Made this decision about a week after ATYCLB came out.
