Songs to Play at Your Funeral

If there is a soundtrack to your life, what would be the song you’d want your loved ones to play at your funeral?

Will it be a predictable song like “Hindi Kita Malilimutan”? Maybe something with a religious tone? Perhaps a danceable pop hit? Or something completely shocking? :laugh:

At my funeral, dapat patugtugin ang Island in the Sun by Weezer. Siguro pati yung music video nun na directed ni Spike Jonze. Ang sarap lang kasi na i-imagine na heaven is filled with baby animals and the sun is always shining.

PS. Pakikinggan ko lahat ng request niyo while imagining na nasa burol ako.

Na-curious ako kung pano mo malalaman - living funeral ba ito? Or magmumulto ka, ganyan? :ghost:

Hahaha that was in jest. Sabi kasi nung lyrics:

“A gathering of angels
Appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope
And this is what they said
They said, come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me (lads)”

Kung may makakasabay akong kaluluwa on my journey to the afterlife, malalaman kong mahal niya ako. :embarasslaff:

Naisip ko ‘to dahil dun sa book of bilins ko. My choices are:

  1. Dumaan ako, titik ni Maningning Miclat tapos kantahin sana ni Cynthia A (mas gusto ko kesa Joey A version)

  2. When one of my good friends died, I picked “Ang Buhay Nga Naman” ni Noel Cabangon as background song sa tribute video. Para siguradong iiyak mga guest ko at mawasak ang kanilang puso :bawling: kelangan i play ito

  3. Underneath the sky. Kahit na first time mo lang marinig, parang ansaya mag sing-along!

  4. We and Us ni Moira. closet fan kasi ako, so pagkakataon ko ng umamin sa burol ko :rotfl:

  5. Powder or lotion, Rizal Underground. Just to remind people na wag damdamin ang aking pagkawala :lol:

  6. New Way to Walk, Elmo with Destiny’s Child. Basta gusto ko ‘to :hihi:

Natawa ako dun sa Elmo with Destiny’s Child. Isa ito sa paulit ulit na pinapanood ni junakis 7 months old ngayon at gusto nya ang kanta. Mahilig kasi sya sa videos ni Elmo.

For you. Kenny Lattimore

I made a holographic will back when I was 14 years old and listed BT&H’s Tha Crossroads and Days of our Lives as my funeral songs. :sweat_smile:
