What Will They Play at Your Funeral?

While I was house sitting for my brother and wasting my time browsing music videos on YouTube (my brother has DSL and I don't) I naturally started to ponder what should be played at my funeral. Don't we all? Actually I don't want a funeral. I figure when it's over it's over. Set a match to what's left and forget it. But then I don't want to be stranded on a desert island either and it is still amusing to wonder what music I'd want to have with me if by some misfortune I were.

To be honest, I didn't have to think much about my funeral music because I've always been partial to the Kinks' Waterloo Sunset, which is seen here performed recently, live, by Ray Davies. Mind you, I might go with the original and the great back up vocals but Ray is certainly still in good voice.

Well, it isn't much fun to ponder when you've already made up your mind, so I pretended I hadn't already decided and thought a bit more. There's a little known song from the Kinks last all-original album that I thought held up even compared to what they did in their glory days. Can't say the visuals for Scattered do much for me but it's a nice philosophical piece.

Then again, maybe I'll skip the philosophy and just go with this one!
