if death were good

Taggart, Justin and I DJ'ed our ward's Halloween party, but with style: vinyl only.

However, our combined collection was missing one song that I would've liked to play. So a day or two later I got on eBay and bought this:

And if the album version of "Never Gonna Give You Up" isn't enough, this 12" single comes with an instrumental version and three sick remixes. With all the different versions of this song it's likely that I'll never get sick of it.

After spinning Rick on my turntable, I decided that I want this song played at my funeral. And that got me thinking, what else would be great to hear at a funeral? This is what I've come up with:

"You Make My Dreams" by Hall and Oates
Anything by David Bowie
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks
"The Good Life" and "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" by Weezer
"Do You Realize??" by The Flaming Lips (OK, this one might actually work)
"Dancing Queen" by ABBA
"I Am The Walrus" by The Beatles
"Rocket Man" by Elton John
"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor

What would you rock at your funeral?

  1. at your funeral by saves the day. it sounds cliche but i was going to a funeral for a friend from high school and as i got in my truck that morning this song came on totally by accident and somehow it felt like an appropiate song to listen to at the time.
    and the greatest man that ever lived by weezer. cause it would describe me perfectly. jk but seriously
