Top 10 Songs Not to Play at a Funeral

10. Anything by Hannah Montana [Do I need to elaborate?]

9. Jingle Bells [That’s just weird].

8. The 4 Seasons~ Vivaldi [while the title makes sense; the execution might be a tad rigorous for the funeral crowd].

7. Don’t Fear the Reaper~ Blue Oyster Cult [a great Second Coming message, but not so much for a funeral].

6. Anything by ZZ Top [Unless you have no moral compass].

5. The Streak~ Ray Stevens [tempting—but no]

4. [I come from a] Land Down Under~ Men at Work [Maybe people will realize it’s about Australia, and maybe they will suspect somewhere else depending on the person]

3. Dust in the Wind~Kansas [Too melancholy and just ever so slightly diminishes the value of life].

2. Anything with the word “remix” in it [just don’t].

1. Another One Bites the Dust~ Queen [This is obvious].
