Don't know why I didn't think of that one right off the bat. It's perfect.

How many songs do I get?

Excluding seasonal songs like "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Joy to the World,' and "Watchman, Tell Us of the Night," I thought about starting with "Amen," as there is a really good rendition of it in "Lilies of the Field," but having tried to sing it and knowing how hard it is to sing, I think I'll start with "The Lonesome Valley."

There's not a very good rendition of it in "The Ox-Bow Incident," but you have to love the words to it. "You got to walk . . . that lonesome valley . . . You got to walk . . . it by yourself . . . No one else . . . can walk it for you . . . You got to walk it by yourself."
The Kingston Trio had a hit with it under the title "The Reverend Mister Black." As a side note I miss the folk song era. Unlike today, songwriters really knew how to put an emotional whomp in their songs. Both the sad songs and the happy songs.

Then "Nearer My God to Thee." There is a great scene in the 1953 "Titanic," totally untrue, but a great scene nevertheless of having all the passengers left on board, after all the lifeboats have left, singing "Nearer My God to Thee."

People joke about bagpipes, but you ought to hear "Amazing Grace" played on the bagpipes. Just a great rendition. So, you have to have that.

Actually, if I had my druthers, I'd have a steam calliope preceding my last journey from the funeral home to the cemetery, but we were talking about songs. So, here are a few more I'd like played at my funeral.

A Mighty Forgress Is Our God
Children of the Heavenly Father
Have Thine Own Way
How Great Thou Art
I Will Sing the Mercies of the Lord
Jesus Savior, Pilot Me
Kumbaya
Rock of Ages
and Trust and Obey

I think that's enough.

Wow!
Kinda weird reading through a thread I started almost EIGHT years ago!   Smile
My writing style has changed so much since then.

Keep the suggestions coming!  :)

     I want a black, rib-burnin' Baptist choir to sing JUST ONE VICTORY, by Todd Rundgren.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
