Let's pretend we're dead

Play it: Playlist for a funeral (tracklisting)

Back in January, I wrote a piece following my sister's death on interesting songs to play at a funeral... just thought I'd revisit it since Robert of the Radish just put together another stellar community playlist based on a similar idea. For my own theoretical funeral (not coming anytime soon, I assure you) I chose Tom Waits' "Come on Up to the House," but I most want to hear Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice Mama, It's Alright" at someone else's funeral... I think that's how I'd go out if I wasn't happily married.
