How the ~~~~ do you include Jerry Lee Lewis without at least one of your forbidden words?
PJ Proby, what a great voice, but only remembered for slitting his pants.
Shame Jerry Lee is similarly castigated for marrying his thirteen year old cousin, which was allowed in Louisianna at that time. (like it is allowed in Saudi now? ? ? ? ?)
No one performer has more albums in the congressional Library.
The Killer made it his business to record virtually every decent country tune for posterity, and added a bit of himself.
He is the ultimate hero and villain of the twentieth century.
You see me? I am with the banned!

When was the last time you updated the songs for your departure?
Entry song, something light
but not too fast.
(Don’t want the coffin-bearers to trip, do we.
Cause some can’t help marchin in time with the beat.)
Got it, Satriani’s “Always with me always with you.”
Nice tempo and feel and a great bridge for the shred-heads.
After the initial obligatory intro/extro guff,
Cheer them up with some happy stuff.
Got it, Sasquatch by Camel.
I defy you not to tap your feet to the heart-beat bounce.
(Though the end goes on a bit.)
Some more ministerial mouth-wash
to help wash away my sins?
Go for the lump in the throat moment,
Camel’s “Ice”. The full version.
If it’s a crem job, I roll out to that.
Then the end of Genesis’s Seconds Out fades in and
fittingly “Los Endos” concludes with Ethel Merman.
There’s no Business like Show Business…
The curtain opens and I roll out for a last bow!
(Dear undertaker, can you destroy the tape I made
with my best Vincent Price laugh. The idea's good,
but the sound quality’s poor.)
(Note: Funeral's I have attended over the last X years,
have increasingly been decorated by the personal selection
of the deceased's supposed favourite music. Music is a very powerful
medium, but without prior planning the wrong selection may only
amplify the hurt)Replies for this message:
