if i have to try and pick a cure song, probably 'to wish impossible things' then.

but actually i wouldn't pick any cure song at all - i don't know why i even should be forced to pick a cure song.
i'd probably pick some classical music before all else.
anyway, it's maybe a bit of a forbidden subject but the most fitting one both lyrically and musically would be the beautiful minimalistic dirge 'collapse the light into earth' by porcupine tree:

I won't shiver in the cold
I won't let the shadows take their toll
I won't cover my head in the dark
And I won't forget you when we part

Collapse the Light Into Earth

I won't heal given time
I won't try to change your mind
I won't feel better in the cold light of day
But I wouldn't stop you if you wanted to stay

Collapse the Light Into Earth
Collapse the Light Into Earth
Collapse the Light Into Earth
Collapse the Light Into Earth
Collapse the Light Into Earth
Collapse...

Or how about
6. The Rest Will Flow

[Written by Steven Wilson]

I was pretending to be floating strong
But I was sinking
In to still water

Eyes closed
All of the rest will flow

Then out of darkness I found I could still feel
Something good
Out of the woods

Eyes closed
All of the rest will flow

One simple thing that I never could see
But now I know
All of the rest will flow

Stay with me my angel I found you
Now I don't feel low
All of the rest will flow

Eyes closed
All of the rest will flow
Cheers
Steve
I know tomorrow's going to taste like cake

A funeral filled with Cure fans, and Just Say Yes, on repeat. I'm sure tears will flow.  :smth023

6. The Rest Will Flow

that's another good pick for sure. ;)

i was actually thinking about this topic again the other day, and actually i think my second choice wouldn't  be a cure song either. i'd probably pick 'blackout' by muse. it's a lot simpler one, what comes to lyrics alone - but i'd still find it quite fitting, as a little monologue of someone just about to die - and well it's a good piece of music too:

don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this love's too good to last
and i'm too old to dream

don't grow up too fast
and don't embrace the past
this life's too good to last
and i'm too young to care

don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this life could be the last
and we're too young to see



i'll never forget this:




ok i know some people hate this subject... but i think muse's 'absolution' is actually a pretty excellent theme album. everything on it is about death/nearness of death/fear of dying/maybe some kind of thrill of dying too (but not a self desctructive one)/the impossibility to ever really grasp anything in your life and the underlying hysteria that all this secret knowledge (and fear) of dying causes. i think this quality, the thematic tightness of it often goes overlooked. there are some obvious ones like 'blackout' and 'thought of a dying atheist', but when you really have a look at it, pretty much everything fits into the theme, even the singles like 'hysteria' and 'time is running out', not to mention the great opening "alarm" of 'apocalypse please' and things like 'stockholm syndrome'.
ok sorry for rambling away.... just something i've been thinking to myself quite a bit lately...

Before Three- A song of rememberance.
Cut Here- A Song of Mourning
Doing The Unstuck- To just get on and live the rest of your life.

That's a good triple threat...

The Walk. It's fun and happy and I wouldn't like someone being sad over my death. I'm only one of like a trillion people after all.  :smth023 :smth023 :smth023 :smth023

First of all something to sat the scene - Plainsong
Then something sad to cry about - pictures of you/same deep water as you
Then something to confuse them all like - the lovecats

Alternitvly they could play "ding dong the witch is dead" - lmao :-D

Just like heaven.    :smth023
 
Then i would love some joyful gospel music, and make the quests walk behind my casket dancing
( would love to hear that in real life, one day.) but at my funeral probably wouldnt be many people,
but lots of animals - its nice to have only a few really close friends.(of the human species)

I like that comedy skit Robert does at the grave yard- someones funeral, and they all do a conga line dance with party hats and

party whistles,  :rocker

Lyric Pieces (taken from My First Record by Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli)
Wenn das Spätjahr kommt, werf ich mich in einen
Wagen, ziehe die Decke des Wagenleders hoch zu
meinem Kopf, hülle mich in einen Mantel - so daß nur
meine Augen übrig bleiben, mit denen nach Euch ich
greife.
(Sören Kierkegaard)
