Has anyone ever thought of a playlist for their own funeral? I have, and here it is in the order it should be played:
Revolution - The Beatles
Demons - Imagine Dragons
Stockholm Syndrome - Muse
Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd (Parts 1-3)
Land of Confusion - Genesis (Disturb cover is better)
No Shelter - Rage Against the Machine
Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi
We Will Rock You - Queen
Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult
The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel (Disturbed cover is better)
Highway to Hell - AC/DC
Hell March 2 - Frank Klepacki (Red Alert 2 theme song)
Sympathy for the Devil - Rolling Stones
Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
1812 Overture - Tchaikovsky (with cannons is better)
Of course its a long playlist, and not what you normally expect when it comes to honoring someone, but I feel it fits me and my life more than a quiet, somber ceremony. Plus the cannons at the end are a triumphant way to go. Everyone should go out with cannon fire, I feel.

"Sir, It is a well-known fact that young people are generally leftwing. It is also well-known that as people get older, they become more rightwing.
It is also a fact that, as people get older, their brain cells die at a faster and faster rate. I would therefore like to propose that conservatism be classified as a degenerative disease."

"I mean, being a freedom fighter, a…a force for good, it's…it's a wonderful thing. You get to make your own hours, looks good on a resume, but the pay…SUCKS."
