Thread Name: What Song for Your Funeral?
Subject: RE: What Song for Your Funeral?
We had great fun at Upper Dicker recently,singing the nautical "Bye Bye,Bye Bye ,Bye Bye,Bye Bye etc" and all swaying from side to side ,waving paper "hankies" ; I think I'd go with that ( and Dougie Brown singing & playing "Death Is Not The End ", assuming that he hadn't predeceased me !)
          Last year ,Karen and I attended the funeral of "Doctor Rosie", who went off ,in a wicker basket rather than a wooden coffin,into the flames to the assembled multitude singing "Bold Riley",which was moving,sad,and...well, funny !! We also had Rosie herself singing "The Bold Dragoon" ; "Jerusalem",in which I get a mention --"Dark,Satanic Mills "....(how I HATED "assembly" at school !!); and last,but by no means least,Joni singing "Chelsea Morning", on which happy note we all repaired an hostelry close by ,for a few whets and some scran ; Excellent !
