Nothing. I want a Viking funeral on Lake Superior with only the sounds of the water hitting the beach and the wood crackling.

My funeral playlist is…

Grady Spencer
Ramsay Midwood
Wayne Hancock
Corb Lund
Eastbound Jesus
Langhorn Slim
Woodbox Gang
Mando Saenz
Jake Bugg
Shakey Graves

Bring a bottle of whiskey and have a time dancing on my grave friend. I’ll be seeing you soon enough.

I;m not having a funeral, I am being cremated. I think ” Yeah toast” is a good choice.

OK, get cremated. But the funeral is not for you. It’s for those of us who last longer than you.

So give us a song!

Dang Coloma! Sorry you hurt yourself.

My song is On the Sunny Side of the Street

I can’t make up my mind. I have narrowed it down to two.

I’m either going with that generic non-copyrighted techno song that you see on all the Youtube videos, so my family is not sued. (taking in to account how shit the world be by then)

Or Ghost Riders In The Sky, to go with my cowboy themed funeral. 1— because it is a cool song, and 2— because all the people who really know me will get it, and laugh at all the people who don’t know me, that are suddenly wondering why a guy who has only been on a horse a couple times in his entire life, 7000 miles away from the nearest thing resembling a cowboy, is suddenly having a cowboy themed funeral.

I’m working on a sing-a-long list to be sung around a fire on an ocean beach after a good picnic meal. I’ll be there in spirit.

First this.

Then this.

Then this.

Since everyone will be depressed there will be a hall rented and a big dance party so they can then start the celebration with a shotgun and with this liftoff. and then choose whatever songs they want until 1 am and at precisely that time after all is said and done and maybe, DJ please cue the exit song, I will be reincarnated into the wolf.

See you on the other side.

P.S. My spirit will be practicing freestyle dubstep on the other side.

Queen. Who Wants to Live Forever.

I imagine my pallbearers walking slowly and somber at the beginning, then when the song crescendoed they would perform this graceful ballet style run up and ceremoniously toss my casket into the hole in the ground. Timed right at that “oooooh-ooooh, our love must diiiee…” (Toss here, then that guitar solo, and the two deep drum beats. Bum-bum)
