What music will you have at your funeral?
It's a tricky choice. For comedy value, I'd love to have Napoleon XIV's They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-haaa. You get the picture: Just as the coffin's rolling down the ramp into the burny flames...
But, for real, I think I'd like the congregation (if there is one) to hear:
- No Surprises by Radiohead: A sad, angry, yet still uplifiting record. Marvellous and so simple. And Paranoid Android can be played at the wake.
- The Bugle Sounds Again by Aztec Camera. I've loved this song since High Land, Hard Rain came out in about 1983. Fabulous lyrics, considering Roddy Frame was about 16 or 17 at the time.
- Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys. The best single ever recorded. No argument.
