An article in today’s Daily Telegraph about Australian trends in funeral song choice:
Highway to Hell among most requested funeral songs
Cool! Also popular are “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, from Monty Python’s Life of Brian, which features the lines, “Life’s a piece of shit, when you look at it”. And then there’s “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”, from Wizard of Oz. Hey, any one of these has got to be better than those ghastly, never-ending, amorphous organ dirges which usually get airplay.
I can think of a few other songs I might consider, including one from Neil Young called “Why do I Keep F….g Up?” How about you? Why not have some fun at your funeral?
