    My friend arranged for the Timewarp to be played at her funeral. It was pretty awesome, a few hundred folk crying, laughing at the same time and doing the Timewarp.

    I think scattering your remains around Disneyland is very achievable if you have been cremated . Scattering them round in other format might be trick/messy/ time consuming , and possibly a health risk.

    Funny, I was actually thinking about this yesterday. My partner, my family and friends already know that I want Myhrpolska by Hoven Droven at my funeral. Unfortunately I cannot find it on YouTube, which is odd considering there may be hundreds of Hoven Droven videos on there.

    Somewhere in the middle I would like this:

    I shall probably write something for my family and friends to play when they put me in the ground in my cardboard coffin, which I hope everyone will have helped decorate with graffiti and messages. If death comes quicker than inspiration I have another composition lined up, which they know about.

    I hope they have a wake at which my friends and family will play whichever of my compositions they feel appropriate and that everyone will dance their socks off. If they decide to play them all, it could be one hell of a party lasting several days. If someone decides to write something for me I hope they let me hear it before I die, because I don't think I shall hear it afterwards.

    I have composed tunes for close friends and two of them said in their instructions to family that they wanted my tunes played at their funerals. On the day of the funeral of one of them in France a couple of months ago my partner was getting text messages from the sister of the deceased saying no one could locate the tune she wanted. I had to upload it to Dropbox and they got it to the funeral parlour with minutes to spare. The other tune was specially recorded for my partner's mother's funeral. She had liked the tune so much in life and laughed at the humour I hoped she would find in my gentle teasing. It was the first time I have seen pall bearers dance out of a church.

    Londons burning, fetch the engine, fetch the engine, fire fire, fire fire, pour on water etc. I had planned to be laid out in my ledge wagon bed and let the flames do the rest. Unless I sell it before hand to pay for a life saving operation. Then I would change my tune! To knick knack paddy wack he played ten. He played knick knack once again.

    but if I did!

    I would have "who wants to live forever" by Queen.

    It's not that cheery but I like it.
