I'd have to say that I disagree with a lot of those songs being funeral songs.

I guess even the happy songs can be considered funeral songs for the "good memories" feel to them...

ok, i know theres probably some people (including me) who like that song, but do you really think 'Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous' would be suitable?

Actually, its kinda cool...

To carry on Pandora's good work, now that there is a 'sticky' available, this will be it.

There's two another threads about death which are now closed. Click the link below to visit it though.
Songs about death #1 and Songs about death #2

I'd say 'One Sweet Day' by Mariah Carey and Boyz 2's really sad

Sorry i never told you all i wanted to say
Ad now it's too late to hold you
'Cuz you've flown away, so far away
Never had i imagined living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And i know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And i know eventually we'll be together
One Sweet Day

Darling, i never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
And i, i took you for granted
But i always cared, and i miss the love we shared

Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to brighter days
Yeah, and lord i know when i lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as i pray

Sorry, i never told you all i wanted to say

My fav. would be:

Smokey Robinson - Really gonna miss you.

He sings it in "Temptations - the movie", at Melvin Franklin's funeral. It's a great song.
