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.

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

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

Hotel California?
Funeral?

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 a** all your life).

Not anymore. Stupid Hoe is number 1 now. But still don't play this one at a funeral.
