For some reason I decided to draft a funeral playlist today. I suppose I have this nagging fear that I'll snuff it in a freak accident, and my mum will pick Annie Lennox or something. Anyway here's what I got so far:
Corale - Einaudi Ludovico
Into My Arms - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Do You Realize?? - The Flaming Lips
Scattered Black and Whites - Elbow
Deuteronomy 2:10 - The Mountain Goats
+ maybe some Joanna Newsom or Cat Power to balance out the beardiness. I realise there's something of a fashion in recent times to be all like I'M PLAYING SPICE GIRLS / THE MUPPETS THEME TUNE BECAUSE I'M WACKY / IT'S A CELEBRATION OF LIFE / IT'LL BE A PARTY JUST LIKE MY LIFE WAS etc, but I actually want everyone to be miserable as fuck because I'll be DEAD and it'll be terrible.
Also Elbow is probably cliche now but I don't care.
