Funerals

#1
Bit of a chat in work today, got on to the subject of death and funerals. Got me thinking what hymns would you have sung at your funeral. My 3 Would be

1) Jerusalem
2) I vow to thee my country
3) Onward christian soldiers

Then on to the pub to drink and say he was a cnut wasn't he.
Just intrested thats all.

1. Who wants to live forever - queen
2. Jerusalem
3. For the comittal Bat out of hell - Meatloaf

Was talking with my old man about similar a couple of weeks ago, that daft old cnut wants his ashes mixing with black powder and firing down Stickledown at Bisley..... If he goes first I'll do it for him

At 0913hrs on Monday morning? That's serious! I'm usually awake, alert and raring to go by then! I only get that suicidal late on Sunday evenings when faced with a pile of CRs and other work that must be completed by, say, 0913hrs on Monday morning....

Abide With Me
Onward Christian Soldiers
Jerusalem

Litotes

And, please, don't ask your mates to sing "All Things Bright and Beautiful" just for a laugh. A church full of soldiers trying to sing in harmony to that is NOT funny.

Depends who turns up:

If any of my ex girlfriends turn up, or if I have one at the time:

Hallalujah - Leonard Cohen
True Colours - The version done by Eva Cassidy, sung by the bird from Lamb (cos Eva is dead)
I'll be your lover, too - Van Morrison

That will get em blubbing.

If it's only my drunken mates who turn up, on the way to happy hour:

So What - Metallica
Feck Her Gently - Tenacious D
I hung my head - Johnny Cash

Highland Cathedral for the lone archer with flaming arrow bit, obviously

Elgars cello Concerto not with Dupree because of all the coughing, one coffin too many and for the rolling through the curtain bit, Nimrod!

If I'm dead they can weep and get it over with, If I know I'm about to off, I want to go to my own wake and get truly bladdered, if the colostomy bag will take it! Only fair as I'll be paying for it!
