The Playlist Project: Funeral Songs. By Bonnie Stiernberg May 14, 2014 12:10pm. Welcome to The Playlist Project, where we’ll be posing musical questions to Paste staff, interns and writers and then compiling their responses into a handy playlist before opening it up for discussion in our comments section. A great funeral song is a tricky thing. Once you’ve kicked the bucket, do you want something classic that’ll make your survivors weep for you, or do you want to try and lighten the mood a little bit with something cheerier? Either way, this week’s Playlist Project focuses on what we’ll rock out to post-mortem.

What song do you want to play at your funeral. Michael Dunaway, Movies Editor. Johnny Cash, “Let the Train Blow The Whistle”. I have my entire funeral scored and soundtracked already. There are of course several emotional songs, but here’s one of the selections that’s a little more lighthearted.
Chelsea Conte, Editorial Intern. Smog, “Dress Sexy at My Funeral”. I don’t care how weird it is, but I am going to say and am completely content with “Dress Sexy at my Funeral” by Smog. Tyler Kane, News Editor.
“Party Hard”. DEATH IS JUST PARTY LEAVING THE BODY. Jeremy Brinling, Marketing Intern. Wang Chung, “Everybody Have Fun Tonight”/Billy Joel, “Only The Good Die Young. ”.
I will be singing at my own funeral, hologram-style. I will set up two options, though: If I die under 50, we’re looking at “Everybody Have Fun Tonight,” and over will be “Only The Good Die Young.
”. Caroline Taylor, Editorial Intern. The Grateful Dead, “Brokedown Palace”. I’ll have the tracklist to my funeral playlist stapled to my will, and it’ll include the Grateful Dead’s “Brokedown Palace,” because I want the whole place welled up with tears.
Shane Ryan, Staff Writer. David Lynch, “Bad the John Boy”. Great question, and to me the only way to answer is to take full stock of my life—my passions, my successes, my disappointments, my loves—and try to find the music that distills everything into a single, musical essence. Something beautiful, but also sad. Something aspirational, but also rooted.
Something that encompasses my life on earth, but also honors the ethereal nature of my imagination. And most of all, guys? Something true.
For me, that song is “Bad the John Boy” by David Lynch. Ryan Bort, Comedy Editor. Rick Astley, “Never Gonna Give You Up”. This will play, confusing attendees momentarily before they realize that yes, I’ve pulled one last fast one on them. Everybody will laugh and exchange gentle, knowing looks with those sitting around them. “Oh, Ryan.
He will be missed,” their eyes will say. The women will take an additional moment to themselves to wonder if they should have pursued a relationship with me/not rejected my advances. Then I will be shown, translucent on a cloud in heaven, winking with a wry smile on my face as everyone starts dancing and the camera zooms out slowly. Roll credits.
Ryan Reed, Contributing Writer. Sigur Ros, “Svefn-g-englar”. I’d totally want Sigur Ros’ “Svefn-g-englar. ” It’s basically the sound of a soul exiting a body.
Rachel Bailey, Contributing Writer. Rachel’s, “Water From the Same Source”. I guess a lot of us say we’d want our funeral to be a party, but when I really think about it, I don’t. Mostly because I wouldn’t presume to tell anyone how to feel about my dying. I like this song because it’s an instrumental, and while it has kind of a pensive vibe, it’s not morose.
It strikes me as kind of a good vessel into which people could pour whatever feelings they were having—grief, nostalgia, whatever. The song was featured prominently in La Grande Bellezza. this Italian movie that came out last year that I loved and that made me feel lots of feelings, and “Water from the Same Source” was a good soundtrack to that emotional melange. Seems like it could work just as well, you know, for people to cry to while they stand over my corpse. Which feels like a strange thing to type or think about, but you know, you don’t want to leave this decision up to your sister who hasn’t listened to anything other than The Smiths for the last seven years.
Charles McNair, Books Editor. Lynyrd Skynyrd, “Sweet Home Alabama”. I want to have a funeral like Tom Sawyer’s…while I’m still alive and can hear what’s said.
Play “Sweet Home Alabama” backwards, please. Bonnie Stiernberg, Music/TV Editor. Prince, “Let’s Go Crazy”. My funeral will have some appropriately sad/poignant stuff (The Kinks’ “Strangers” for obvious cheesy Darjeeling Limited -related reasons, Bonnie Raitt’s version of “Angel from Montgomery” because it’s the song that inspired my parents to name me Bonnie and would bring things to a nice full circle), but I don’t want the affair to be a total bummer. Once everyone’s sufficiently mourned me, I’ll want them to celebrate life and then move on, which is why the grand finale to my funeral will be Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy. ” “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life,” Prince will reassure my friends and relatives (the actual Prince, not a recording, because let’s be honest, Prince is a magical unicorn who will outlive us all). “Electric word, life.
It means forever, and that’s a mighty long time, but I’m hear to tell you there’s somethin’ else: the afterworld. A world of never-ending happiness. You can always see the sun, day or night. So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills, you know the one, Dr. Everything’ll Be Alright, instead of asking how much of your time is left, ask him how much of your mind, baby. ” Then he’ll punch a higher floor and the entire room will go absolutely nuts, devolving into a cathartic dance party. (Note to all interested parties: if you are planning on Weekend at Bernie’s -ing me, this would probably be the ideal moment to do so.
Then when the song’s over and The Purple One screams “Take me away,” put me back in my box and do just that. Josh Jackson, Founder/Editor-in-chief. Van Morrison, “Astral Weeks”. I knew the answer to this question (and really, all questions) at the age of 17: Drivin’ N’ Cryin’s “Check Your Tears At the Door.
” This little picture of heaven—”Don’t cry for me I’m happy / I’m finally back home / I talked to Houdini yesterday and my father’s father’s mom”—is just the thing to get people to “stop tugging on my soul” (apparently a big concern for D’N’C’s Kevn Kinney). But as sweet as that song still strikes me, my tastes have changed a bit over the years, and I think I’ll now go with Van Morrison’s “Astral Weeks”: “Lay me down / in silence easy / to be born again / in another world. ”. Garrett Martin, Games Editor. Je Suis France, “Doctor My Ice”. I had to write a song about what I wanted my bandmates to do with my body when I died.
It’s the closest thing I have to a will. Makes sense to play it at my funeral. Sarah Lawrence, Graphic Designer. Modest Mouse, “Bury Me With It”. Okay, so, my death will actually be told through a series of songs. We’ll have “Dead,” by They Might Be Giants, “Funeral” by Band of Horses, and finishing with “Bury Me With It” by Modest Mouse. And then depending on how the rest of my life goes, tacking on either “Stairway to Heaven” or “Highway to Hell.
”. Shelley Brown, Assistant Design Editor. Tom Petty, “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”. I was going to be somber about this and suggest something like The National’s “So Far Around the Bend” or Yann Tiersen’s “Comptine d’un Autre Été: L’Après Midi” but really, I think the answer has to be Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance. ” Forgetting all about the necrophiliac love story in the music video for a moment, Petty sings, “Buy me a drink, sing me a song / Take me as I come ‘cause I can’t stay long.
” He may be talking about a one night stand, but those lines encompass the two things I’d want to celebrate most about my life: good times and good people. Eric Walters, Editorial Intern. Mandolin Orange, “Until the Last Light Fades”. Every piece of me wanted to go upbeat with this, choose a celebratory tune full of grandeur, lacking any sense of bashfulness.
But, the more I thought, the more a single song stood out: Mandolin Orange’s “Until the Last Light Fades” from their impeccable 2013 record This Side of Jordan. One of the most gorgeous tunes on last year, from one of the most gorgeous records, and quite possibly the most beautiful, gentle and serene song about death I’ve ever heard. Now it’s your turn. We hope you live forever, but in case you don’t, what song will play at your funeral.
