Apparently they got so completely fed up with The Funeral March on record 

I didn't realise that they actually used that at funerals. Its the most depressing dirge ever. Me and my mate used to jam it when we were playing for a laugh but we only played the first couple of bars before launching into something hilarious.

So, I think as guests arrive then Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings

Then as I'm about to be toasted then my own piece of music, The Sound of Ghosts - Hear it in the Silence,

Then as guests leave then The Doors - Riders on the Storm

This was pre-war. I can't imagine anyone wanting it now. 

Just heard Satriani's Always with me, Always with you. That would be quite fitting.

This one for sure
, and anyone leaving before it ended would be automatically excluded from the will!

 

 

But also I'd forgetten what a beautiful song "Days of Our Lives" is.

I've told Mrs verb that I'd like I Am The Highway by Audioslave  played at my funeral. 

A friend of mine, who died aged 43, had Ace of Spades playing as the curtains closed around his coffin.

I’m going to make everyone sit through Awaken by Yes. And they’d better bloody well enjoy it.

Here's mine;

That's where I'll probably be going, so may as well 'fess up and be honest about it.

They'll be thankful you didn't request the whole of Topgraphic Oceans...

We had this at my dads funeral as we entered the crematorium.

As for me, how about 'Firestarter' by The Prodigy or maybe 'Blaze Of Glory' by Bon Jovi?

On 22 September 1989 a bomb exploded at The Royal Marines School of Music at Deal Barracks. 11 died and 21 were seriously injured, the bombers were never caught. I remember BBC did a news item of one of the military funerals and I heard a brief snatch of a trumpet player playing Monk’s Round Midnight.

That was a goose bump moment and I thought ‘I’ll have some of that’. Played live, of course. Fee in the pot.
