Thanks For That Little Richard.

I’ve updated my funeral music list and the same rules as before apply.
If you’re my friend or part of my family and this music doesn’t get played,
I will come back and dedicate my entire afterlife to haunting you.

Fair enough?

How many songs are you allowed at a funeral?
I want a humanist funeral so I think that entitles me to about 5 or 6 pieces of music.

I don’t care if I’m cremated or not but yes,
I am tempted to have “Great Balls Of Fire” by Jerry Lee Lewis played as the heat gets turned on.
I’ll need to think about that.

But anyways,
Here’s what I would like played (…and hopefully my Spotify links will work):

Miserere Mei Deus” by Gregorio Allegri.

Long Tall Sally” by Little Richard.

Sleepwalk” by Santo & Johnny.

Life Is But A Dream” by The Harptones.

The End Of The Road” by Jerry Lee Lewis.

Philadelphia” by Neil Young.

I don’t care which order those get played in as long as they’re in that order.

Now,
Hopefully I won’t die for a very long time but just incase,
You’ll find all of that music on my ipod and I have them all on record too.

P.S.
For some reason best known to himself,
Little Richard re-recorded “Long Tall Sally” later in his life and put these drums on it which I fucking hate alright?
It wrecks the whole song.
Richard got carried away with the Rock and forgot about the Roll.
(Thanks for that Little Richard).
So the version I want played HAS TO BE from the album “Here’s Little Richard!” okay?

It’s only my favourite song in the entire World.

That’s all Little Richard!
