    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!

      Hi Ernestine As far as I know, nobody has ever explained a phenominum that you have highlighted. Some poeple just cannot stand background music. Is it genetic or behavioural. I could never write th ... more

    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)

      Just got back to The Gambia after my mum's funeral in the UK. I would rather go to one good funeral than five bad weddings! 85 years, ex wren, big with the Legion and RNA so we had white ensign dra ... more

    well, i will have to say anything with a Blue Note jazz address stamped on it qualifies,
    but my favorites are miles davis and john coltrane, it just never gets old,
