What song(s) would you want to be played at your funeral?


Not sure if you're all used to music being played at some point during one's wake or funeral but in any case... what music do you want played at yours?

Jokey puns welcome and Iron Maiden tracks preferred if applicable, but basically anything goes :p

First thing that pops into mind is Infinite Dreams,  though, Dream Theater's Dance of Eternity sounds good.

OK, jokingly, Break Stuff.  Death, its just one of those days.


Highway to Hell followed by Stayin' Alive :p

Maiden wise - HBTN would be fitting, especially from the 2nd half of the 2nd verse (Mark my words...) onwards.

Unknown One

I see the ghost of navigators.
Powerslave, I don't want to die, I'm a god,  yadda yadda  :D :p

Actually, I think Hallowed Be Thy Name of Wasted Years would be most appropriate, but Powerslave wouldn't be all that far off.

Bruce Dickinson - Road to Hell
(Not only because of the title, but because this song has a great "closer" feel to it)
