Don’t Make Me Haunt You!

For ages and ages and ages……………..most of my life really,
I’ve been thinking and secretly planning what music I would like played at my funeral…….whenever that may be.

Maybe it’s the weather or something.
It’s probably tied up with the fact that I turn 27 in a few weeks.
27.
That’s crazy in itself!
The Rock & Roll age of death. Heh heh.

Anyways, every funeral (With the exception of 1) I’ve ever attended has been impersonal and had unimaginitive music and (Or) hymns played.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love hymns.
Especially ‘I Watch The Sunrise’ – That’s a beauty!

However, (And this is obviously subject to change) I want these to be played at mine:

“Sleepwalk” by Santo & Johnny,
“All The Tired Horses” by Bob Dylan,
“Time To Say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocelli,
“Angel Baby” by Rosie & The Originals,
And perhaps “Long Tall Sally” By Little Richard.

It’s obviously tempting to throw in something by Marilyn Manson for a laugh but….nah.
I’ll be pleased if one of the above gets played.

Rock & Roll.
1950’s Rock & Roll.
I bloody well love it!

It’s simple,
* Mention religion or Jesus at my funeral:
– You’re getting haunted.

* Say anything other than ‘Al was a great guy’:
– You’re getting haunted.

* Give me a Catholic send off:
– You’re getting haunted.

So, to clarify, I want a humanist ceremony with great music right?

So, whoever arranges my farewell thing, Take note of this.
‘Cause if you don’t,
– You’re getting haunted!
