JW, yes brilliant, mine's already been chosen but I have no idea what. Hope it's 'When the saints go marching in'.

One of the songs my daughter had played at the graveside at her funeral was "Is there anybody out there?" by Pink Floyd. It certainly bought a smile to everyone's face.

I have always thought Leslie Sarony singing 'Ain't it Grand to be Blooming Well Dead' would be a show stopper at a funeral

Ha ha ha ha! I can see you are giving this topic a great deal of thought. I am hoping to be around a few more years yet but when it's time for making plans I will have to draw from the barrel. Whatever, it had better be lively! With due respect I don't like gloomy funerals. Just to reflect my husband's humour, he always said we should play Ray Stevens' "The Streak" at his funeral, but I didn't - at the time I didn't think it was appropriate but his mates said I should have respected his wishes. No doubt he will have me over the coals for that!

I've already been to Two Funerals where "Always look on the bright side of life" has been played at the end, (one this year in fact). Another, (again this year), played "Ying Tong, Ying Tong, Niddle I po" as the Congregation left the Service ! Big grin

My late Uncle Fred had Jerry Lee Lewis's "Great Balls of Fire" playing as he went through the curtains at Canley Crem.

Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up Wave Just come back to add, reading again all your posts set me up and I can't stop laughing as I am imagining the congregations' thoughts when they hear these crazy funeral requests. Do you think they would join in? Edited by member, 16th Oct 2018 1:19 pm

Dreamtime. I asked my wife if she was going to play Eartha Kitt's 'I'm just mad about the boy'? 'No chance, no, something a bit closer to home, and more appropriate'. 'You mean Tom Jones's 'Green Green Grass of Home'. 'No, the other one - Humperdinck's 'Please release me'. Roll eyes

Scrutiny, I did 24 parachute descents when they were meant to get you on the ground in a hurry, yet I have never broken one bone in my body ever, neither have I ever had an operation. But this last year I've been in a lot of pain - the doc said "We can do a small operation, take away 80% of the pain but at your age???" Me, "What's the odds." He, hands held high, "Who knows, fifty-fifty?" Me, "Perhaps I should read Chandler's 'The Big Sleep' again".

No need to apologise Kaga, I still bow to your wonderful memories and insight into our past. As for the "missing pages" - I think I know what you're referring to. To step backward or forward one page at a time, just click the brown Left-Right arrows either side of the navigation box. I have a feeling that you're only using the numbers, which step five pages at a time. (Huge topics such as this one would cause a very cluttered navigation box if every page was listed.) Also, for anyone using a laptop or desktop PC, just pressing the left or right arrow on your keyboard will jump to the previous/next page. Additionally, pressing "P" will take you straight to the Previous topic, and "N" to the Next. And.... pressing "F" takes you to the First post of the topic you're on, and "L" to the Last (most recent) post. Generally, remembering just the left/right arrows along with P and N will have you moving around the forum at lightning speed! Thumbs up
