What would you have as your funeral song?

 

An interesting point is that some people choose songs they loathed in life as a piss-take. Personally, I don't hate the people in my life enough to have them sit through sodding Westlife.

 

Late aunt went with Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. Maw has made it very clear that she wants this specific remix of Adagio for Strings:

 

 

Former colleague went out with this one about a year ago. I assumed he did it as a piss-take.

Ahhh, I'll get stuck into the comments later.  Often some witty stuff in the Grauniad BTL.

 

But this is well worth its own thread on here.  Don't we have one? 

I once started a thread on songs featuring death, but I can't remember if there's one for funeral music.  If not, we need one.

 

Indeed we do:

Cheers, Cat, I thought we did.  Searched for 'funeral' but was outwitted by the adjectival version.

 

I searched for the term funer* (the * meaning followed by anything). It makes searching a whole lot easier.  :D

New book about a superhero with terminal cancer.

Banjax, “a dark and decidedly wicked superhero noir that pulls no punches, that suffers no fools, that repeatedly gets knocked down, but always gets back up again with a smile,” according to the press release.

Here’s the book’s description:
 

Liard Mason, a disgraced former superhero, is diagnosed with terminal cancer, brought on by years of using his powers. Defending what he has deemed an ungrateful and ultimately unworthy city is literally killing him. With just months to live and a legacy hanging in the balance, Mason launches a violent and misguided Death Wish-like campaign to purge the city of supervillains before he dies.When things get really ugly, Mason’s measured and deliberate former sidekick, Abel Raines – the public’s current point-and-wink superhero ideal – is tasked with bringing his old mentor in. The issue? Raines isn’t remotely up to the task."

Supposed to be a 'feel good' story about 31-year-old Chris Salvatore and his neighbor, 89-year old Norma Cook. Story says the two are 'best friends'. And when Chris found out about Norma's terminal leukemia diagnosis, he couldn't bear the thought of her moving away to a nursing home. And so, the dying 89-year-old woman moved in with her young neighbor to finish out her days surrounded by love!

I'm sorry, this is creepy AF.  And wrong-un AF.  And missing key facts that we know are lingering in the shadows.
So fucking creepy I had to share.  Even the photo is ripe for wincing.
