Seem to be going to more and more funerals lately and I keep getting asked this question. At the moment I would say Marmalade Reflections Of My Life and Tindersticks My Oblivion. What would you pick for yours?
Chris van Rock… Nick drake – northern sky, Manic street preachers – motorcycle emptiness.
Terry Huggins… In This Moment 11:11. My mother had Bat out of Hell played at hers.
Allyson Breeds… I’m sure some people think the appropriate one for me is ‘Ding Dong the Witch is Dead’
Phil Gill… I want my iPod set to shuffle something random happens. It’s a risky strategy though, it has Derek and Clive on it.
Jan Warren… Freebird – Lynryd Skynyrd
Patricia Landamore… Stylistics,” You make me feel brand new” think I would leave with Lou Reed,” It’s a Perfect Day ” 👏👏👏👏
Jim Breeds… Another one bites the dust. Going underground.
Phil Gill… Have to say Mo set the bar quite high with “Don’t Fear The Reaper”
Jo Avery… “Don’t wanna know” – John Martyn, “Time in a bottle” – John Croce. Then right at the end “To Life” from Fiddler on the Roof!
Dennis Torrance… I think a hard choice stairway to heaven or something by the great film composer John Barry
Jo Avery… Out of Africa perhaps? Beautiful.
Dennis Torrance… yes out of Africa a must I think. John Barry wrote such stunning scores for films midnight cowboy etc . Am a rock fan at heart but my brother used to like John Barry music and it grew on me
Mike Guy… Fire – Bruce Springsteen, I’m On Fire – Bruce Springsteen, Fire – Crazy world of Arthur Brown . . . . guess it’s a cremation! In reality something by Yes – something quite lone to fill the space left by a lack of any religious service. . . . Ritual might be ironic enough.
Virginia Davis… I was discussing this with my friend the other day and she picked Music by John Miles for me as it reminds her of me. Nice to know she’s put some thought into the subject !!!
Tony May… I’d want ‘Someday’ by Kim Wilde and my own ‘The Toy Museum’ played at mine…
Karen Sweatman… Don’t Fear The Reaper for me
Glenn Piper… For my own funeral; Queen- Another one bites the dust. John Martyn- Solid Air, Joe Bonamassa- Drive.
Margaret Fletcher… Elvis ( ANGEL )
Caroline Spencer… Elvis how great thou art
Stephen Kolimbarides… Dudley Moore & Peter Cooke Goodbye
