    What song(s) would you play at your funeral?

    For now, I'd play "The Great Gig in the Sky" by Pink Floyd, "the W.A.N.D.," by the Flaming Lips, and "All Along the Watchtower" by Jimi Hendrix.

    I'd have:

    Always with me Always with you (the 10 minute live version) Joe Satriani

    Stairway to heaven - Led Zeppelin

    Comfortably numb - Pink Floyd and woe betide anyone who stops it before the end of the final guitar solo...

    Another One Bites the Dust is a tempting choice...however, I would like to stick to family tradition and go with bagpipes. Family funerals always include Amazing Grace and then a couple of favorites or those that describe the deceased, so for me it would also be Red River Valley and very possibly Paint Me Back Home in Wyoming. Luckily this family tradition has produced some very talented pipers.

    I asked my Dad, whose ninety and a Christian, this question. He said "For all we know, we may never meet again" by Nat King Cole.
    Sounds a bit agnostic, doesn't he?
