    Default Funeral music.

    Fadi has brought up the subject of death, I'm fine with that.

    I'm not even close to be as serious as my good friend Fadi. I try to look on the lighter side of most things in life, death too.

    Recently I went to the funeral of a relative, though not a close one. The music they chose to play was sad and mournful. Which brought a tear to many eyes, including mine.
    Thats ok for some, but when its my turn, I don't want people said.

    So what music would I have. One song came instantly to mind;

    Monty Python's Life of Brian;
    allways look on the bright side of life, whistle....

    Or if cremated
    "Smoke on the water"

    What would music/songs would you have?

    Mike.

    Hahaha, bright side of life would be classic hahaha.

    I have no clue what i'd have play. But it would be something on the lighter side like you've said.

    Fadi.
    I had to google "Qur'anic", sounds very spirtiual and emotional.

    Tell me Fadi what would the reaction be if......

    we both had our funeral at the same time, and our music CDs got mixed up?

    I think the people at my funeral would be scratching their heads for weeks, tryiny to understand my last peice of humour.

    I'll have to remember this, ha ha ha.

    Ah you're a funny man Mike !
    No, the recitation is recited by actual people and not a recording of any sort. So rest assured, there won't be any mix up Brigadier !

    PS: There you go, I've got two icons playing above...remember our first encounter and how I totally misunderstood your intentions?! Thanks to you now, I won't leave home without my icons Mike...

    Fadi.
    Real people, mmmmm perhaps I could switch the sheet music

    I do remember Fadi, quite a few people misunderstand my humour. Being a faceless hand behind a keyboard doesn't help.

    I'm glad we got past it though.

    Mike.
