A Sucker For the Music

Okay, I’m not normally into “tagging”.

But I’m am such a sucker for a tag relating to music that I have to participate!

This time, it was Alyson at RN Wannabe who got me.

I’m supposed to pick five songs that I would want played at my funeral.

Now this is a very indelicate time to receive this tag as I am sitting here, up at 0500 with a “code in my dose” and fighting for every breath!

Okay, it isn’t, that bad, but the creepy cold crud attacked my relatively stable immune system yesterday.

I wonder which patient gave it to me?



Okay, here are the five songs I want played at my funeral:

  • Stayin’ Alive by the Bee Gees

Of course, one look at Barry Gibb in those tight white pants from the ’70s would jump start my heart immediately!

  • Another One Bites The Dust by Queen

One must have a sense of humor, musn’t one?

  • Livin’ La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin

I want everyone squirming in the pews, trying not to dance!

  • Every Breath You Take by The Police

Creep everyone out by making them think I’m watching them from the “beyond”!

  • Who’s Cryin’ Now by Journey

It won’t be me, I’m dead!


I now hereby tag anyone who wants to take on this happy topic! No solemn, heavy mourning for me, no way!

And you know those people who want donations to charities instead of flowers?

I want so many flowers FTD can’t keep up.

What can I say?

I like flowers!

    I love your choice. Mother Jones RN tagged me yesterday, so mine are already posted.

    hmmm….I think I smell a separate post here on my site with music samples…

    All I’ll say is mine will be 100% the opposite…I want people mourning dammit, throwing themselves on my casket, fainting in despair, wailing in the sanctuary…how can people go on without me?!!?

    (I am so kidding…)
