...to play at your funeral?
No brainer for me. My friends and family already know the answer to this:
(and I was at the show where the video link was made last week).
Funny you should post that just as I was sending the song to a friend.
An obvious choice no doubt.
But I had you pegged as perhaps more...Sinatra's My Way.
Will the Circle Be Unbroken.
Not my type of music.
I wouldn't want something played that was a favorite at the funeral...now, maybe at the wake...
My guess for you would be The Good Ship Lollipop.

Yeah, I shoulda said wake. That's actually what I meant.
I'm leaning toward Tull's "A Passion Play"

in the tidal destruction, the moral melee - Gerald Bostock
Great song... but I like the Rufus Wainwright version:

Oh, I LOVE that version!
I added it to my "favorites" on youtube. Now I have 4 versions of "Hallelujah" on there by Leonard, kd lang, Jeff Buckley and Rufas Wainwright.
