7734 by Sabaton.  Because it may as well be metal.

Almighty lord we have come to your hall
Do glatem live, creator of all
Open your heart and you will find a way
Paradise calling and enter you may


That or Amazing Grace on the pipes.  Guy at the VFW plays and it'll tear your heart out.

Nothing particular in mind but I'd like it to be something decidedly inappropriate.

About 15 years ago the adult son a good friend of mine was killed by a drunk driver while test driving a motorcycle.
"I Like Big Butts" was the young man's favorite song, sort of his theme song. It was played at the funeral.

As a side note, the young man had just 2 weeks prior returned from his 2nd deployment to the Afghanistan.
My friend was killed 2 years ago by a drunk driver when the drunk ran his bike into a guardrail.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

As a DD-214 holder, I could get Taps and a flag for the wife. Will probably do that at the very end of it all then a drive out the Kisatchie National Forest just outside Pollock, LA to scatter my ashes in the woods there near "Big Creek".
I might not last very long or be very effective but I'll be a real pain in the ass for a minute!

I have a Viking funeral planned. Haven’t decided on music yet. Maybe Jonny cash ring of fire.
I was at a funeral for a friend and they played Elvis gospel music. That was pretty cool.
What we have here is failure to communicate.

Me too, though nothing is on paper. A “good” friend has been told to acquire a boat for it. That way I can provide some entertainment when the rightful owner comes running out to inquire why his boat is floating away, and in flames...

(Don't Fear) The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult.  Contrary to popular belief, it is not a song about suicide.  It is about love transcending death, how two people can be together in eternity.
“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

I'm surprised none of you troublemakers hasn't mentioned John Prine's Please Don't Bury Me.

But I'm going to go with Come On Up To The House.  This version, not the Tom Waits original.

(PIano cover of "The Great Gig in the Sky")

---edit to add--

Actually, "For All the Saints" (alt), with the Vaughn Williams tune ("Sine Nomine"), or something like this.

That's easy.  Open Casket at least 20 feet away from people and the song Pop Goes the Weasel.

Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".

Out where there are miles and miles of miles and miles.

Tom Waits Cold, Cold, Ground would be a great one, too.

Frank Sinatra singing, "I did it my way."  Been my theme song since it came out many years ago.
