'When The Saints' was playing as we carried him in and ad we carried him out, and they joined us in the Parish Social Centre next to the church for the knees-up afterwards.
They had never played together, had had a drink or two (a touch of the mountain dew courtesy of the old fella) before they met the carriage and a good time was had by all. In fact it was a fantastic funeral that was only missing one person ... a crotchety, old bloke moaning that he should be give the sax as he could do far better ...

Either REM - It's the end of the world
I would have said Prodigy - firestarter for cremation as well.

Coming Back to Life by Pink Floyd could be quite amusing.

I had said 'Sweetness Follows' by R.E.M., but have changed my mind (am I allowed to do that?), 'Try Not To Breathe' also by R.E.M. is a far better choice...

If they haven't got it quite right before the end I'll opt for cryogenics with instructions not to wake me up until my brain can be photocopied into a robot.

Green Day - Ha Ha You're Dead
Only joking of course!
I'd go for "In the Arms of the Angels" - Sarah Macgloulin, from the soundtrack to one of my fav movies, "City of Angels".

As far as funerals go that sounds great, glad it's actually do-able. She's said it for years so it looks like that's the plan for when it does happen

"There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Aint life unkind?"

We were lucky in that we had a contact from the local folk / jazz music scene (courtesy of Tony Davis formerly of The Spinners, who has his own Jazz Band) and it was put together in quiet good time.

Stragnely enough the old fella did not want any of us at the grave side, just the priest and an Irish piper. One of my brothers waited at the gates for the priest and piper to return, and then followed back to join in the party.
He was buried with an RAF Beret, a Union Flag, and a hip flask full of the good stuff brought over from the emerald isle by a cousin. A patriotic Dubliner who was proud to have served for Queen and Country in his youth.
I think I might have a poetry reading ... Vogon poetry perhaps.
