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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
