I can’t imagine this song going over very well.

Trillian's avatar

Don’t know if the song has an actual name, it goes;
“Oh don’t you laugh, when the hearse goes by, for you may be the next to die.
They wrap you in a big white sheet, and throw you in about six feet deep.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, and the ants play pinochle on your snout.
And then you turn a mossy green, and goo runs out like thick whipped cream.”
My dad used to sing this little gem to me when I was a kid.
That might be another thread…....

I found the music that was played at my Grandmother’s funeral to be very inappropriate. It was very religious music and she was not religious. It made no sense to me.

Otherwise, songs that seem inappropriate might be exactly what the person would have wanted.

leave it to @eponymoushipster to find a song with the word penis in it. My 4 year old grandson said to my daughter, ‘Mommy, you have a brain and daddy has a penis.”

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Judi well, the point of the Q was to find a song inappropriate for a funeral? mission accomplished, no?

True story: A good friend passed away when we were in high school. She was a very popular, prom queen type of student. It was the late 80’s and her parents had the pipe organ in the church play “Pretty in Pink”. I always found it strange and creepy, not only because it was being played on a pipe organ.

Axemusica's avatar

@hungertoragejr I was thinking those too, but they’re kind of not inappropriate. Actually quite fitting in my book, lol.

hungertoragejr's avatar

@hungertoragejr I wouldn’t say inappropriate just pointless, lol, so maybe it would be. I dunno

Refugee by Tom Petty would sound pretty weird, or Hendrix doing the Anthem from Woodstock blaring would raise some eyebrows for sure
