    No brainer for me. My friends and family already know the answer to this:

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u--4DBKsflc&feature=related[/ame]

    (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. :cool:

    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"

    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.

    Thanks!
