Top Ten Best Songs to Play at Your Funeral

The Top Ten
1 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

I want this song for my funeral, actually. It would be a beautiful farewell, telling them I have gained enough money to buy the stairway itself!

This is a good song to play at a funeral, but only if the person did some good things throughout their life.

Who wouldn't want this song played at their funeral? I certainly want it played at mine!

This would be a great song for any funeral. That way they'll be ready to go to heaven!

2 Hurt - Johnny Cash Hurt - Johnny Cash Cover Art

It's a very sad song, and the title really reflects well how the people at your funeral must feel (unless you've been an ass all your life).

3 Hotel California - Eagles Hotel California - Eagles Cover Art
4 Highway to Hell - AC/DC Highway to Hell - AC/DC Cover Art

That would be a terrible thing to play at a funeral. It would only be good for a Peter Scully funeral.

That is just going to make everyone at the funeral feel relaxed and not worry isn't it?

What? Really? Where do you think the people think you're headed?

No, while it's a good song, it's a bad choice for a funeral, NO!

Good song, but not an appropriate one to play at a funeral.
