    I've always wanted River Man by Nick Drake. Such a perfect song, plus it reminds me a lot of my childhood as my Dad used to play it to me on the guitar.

    Well My Dad wants "Sweet about Me" By Gabrella Chilmi

    I'd have Life Is A Highway, either by Rascal Flatts or Tom Chocrane

    Of course, that isn't to everyone's tastes.

    I'd be laughing my head off at a funeral if I heard "Sweet About Me", and probably singing along too :') It'd be awkward for everyone else of course, but screw 'em.

    Anyway, I'd choose This Is Not The End by Clare Maguire. It's beautiful, it's by an artist I love, and it's got some excellent lines in it that are very funeral-like. I get goosebumps every time I listen to it.

    I would say something by Radiohead, but that would probably just depress people more.

    Mr Blue Sky by ELO or In My Life by The Beatles.

    I Bet someone has already mentioned this, but it would definitely be either Stairway to heaven or Another one bites the dust (just so my family and friends can have a good time) because Led Zeppelin and Queen are amongst my top 3 artists (the second being Nirvana) so either this or this

    edit: if i die young, i might pick or

    Alive by Pearl Jam

    Because if people aren't confused at my funeral then I'll be sorely disappointed.

    I've been to four funerals, and not one of them had any music. Honestly I can't imagine any music being played for mine either.

    If I DID have anything played at my funeral though, I won't be around to hear it, so I don't imagine it would really make a difference. Something my kids and/or husband picks out will do - after all, a funeral is more for the benefit of the people we leave behind.

    That being said, if I were to benefit at all from a funeral, which I doubt I would, then the theme music from Dragonheart is very beautiful and appropriate :
