Last song you would want to hear. Ever.

Recommended Posts

Good on you Ron. :) You got my little joke.

I'm surprised that anyone knew it. It is a good song.

I'd probably like to hear some boring late 60s/70s Band (Zep, Floyd - plenty to choose from) playing something with a gratuitous 10 minute guitar or drums/flute/keyboard solo + vocals, so I could gasp out "why didn't you play me 4 good three minute Pop songs instead !". (Beach Boys or Beatles).

:laughing:

Seriously ? Jesus Is A Soul Man - the rocking Johnny Rivers' version.

I had a feeling you were going to say something like that. :P

Anyway, 10 minutes is nothing. Foolonthehill and I decided on a 23 minute masterpiece. That's much more like it. :grin:

Could I have 8 justunder3minute Pop Songs instead, please Mate. :neener:

I grew up listening to "Hit Parades" where they counted down the songs from #8 to #1 + slipped in a couple of advertising breaks in 30 minutes ! The good old AM days.

I'd like to hear the following songs at my funeral.

1. When The River Meets The Sea: By John Denver and The Muppets

Such a peaceful song about the circle of life, and discovering what happens when we die, when the world is in perfect harmony once again.

When The River Meets The Sea

Words By Paul Williams

Music By John Denver

Verse 1.

When the mountain, touches the valley.

All the clouds are taught to fly.

As our souls will leave this land, most peacefully.

Though our minds, be filled with questions.

In our hearts we'll understand.

When the river meets the sea.

Verse 2.

Like a flower, that has blossomed.

In this dry and barren sand.

We are born and born again, most gracefully.

Thus the winds, of time will take us.

With a sure and steady hand.

When the river meets the sea.

Verse 3.

Patience, my brothers.

And patience, my son.

In that sweet and final hour.

Truth and justice will be done.

Verse 4.

Like a baby, when it is sleepin’.

In its mother's lovin’ arms.

What a newborn baby dreams, is a mystery, a mystery.

And this life, will have a purpose.

And in time, we'll understand.

When the river meets the sea.

When the river meets, the almighty sea!

2. Philadelphia: By Neil Young

Such a beautiful song, and the perfect little lullaby to send your soul to a loved one who has passed on.

I cannot adequately express my joy at your choosing this song. John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together is one of my favorite albums of all time.

I think I already said that in another thread, the last song to be played at my funeral should be

P.S. You Rock My World ~ Eels

[spoilerq:1]lyrics[/spoilerq]

[spoilera:1]I was at a funeral the day I realised

I wanted to spend my life with you

Sitting down on the steps at the old post office

The flag was flying at half-mast

And I was thinkin' 'bout how everyone is dying

And maybe its time to live

I don't know, where we're going

I don't know what we'll do

Walked into the Thrif-tee

Saw a man with the hollow eyes

who didn't give me all my change

But it didn't bother me this time

'cause I know I've only got

this moment

And it's good

I went to the gas station

Old woman honked her horn

Waiting for me to fix her car

I don't know, where we're going

I don't know what we'll do

Laying in bed tonight I was thinking

and listening to all the dogs

and the sirens and the shots

And how a careful man tries to dodge the bullets

While a happy man takes a walk

And maybe it's time to live...[/spoilera]

I told hubby I would like "In My Life" played at my funeral....and oh he's just so sweet, he said "sure I'll do better than that, I'll have McCartney sing it, in person!"....I said oh gee, thanks dear, but I'm planning on living untill at least in my 80's, and that would make Paul what? 105 or more?????" :jester: and of course this conversation was after we've both had some beers.... :P
