I Did I My Way…Before I Died

Boing Boing has pulled up a very interesting Yahoo article on the top funeral tunes in Australia. Apparently, “My Way” By Frank Sinatra is number one. Second is “Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong.

Funny, I’d really like to have the Sid Vicious cover of My Way at my funeral, not because it’s a great song, but just because it seems aggressive and appropriate. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think a song about a wonderful world is really the kind of song I envision at a funeral.
