Coldplay song at funeral?

Flying Sparks

Recommended Posts

I just read an article about an 18-year old girl shot by the police because the officers felt "threatened" by her whielding a knife. It's a quite controversal, strange case and a very, very sad story which you can read here:




However, the article features this paragraph:


MacDonald's mother Lisa Marie Guy bent down to kiss her one last time before taking her seat. It was half-way through the service while listening to Coldplay's song "Yellow" that Guy broke down, shaking her head several times.


I know that it's a sad thing to think about, but what do you think about having a Coldplay song at YOUR funeral? Some songs suit perfectly for remembering a person, both giving you a good and an incredibly sad feeling. What song would YOU like - which song represents your life best, with which song would you like your family and friends to say Goodbye?


If that's a stupid thread/thought, then I apologise.. But I thought of that a couple of times before, because one of my last wishes, in this state of mind, would be having a Coldplay song at the ceremony..

My 3 songs:


* One Coldplay song - I can't choose one and it doesn't really matter because I'm in love with so many of their songs and each of them means a lot to me!

* Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah (it's the most emotional song I know and it just HAS TO be played at my funeral)

* Beatles - Here comes the sun (my favourite song ever, no matter which version - may it be Beatles, Oasis, Coldplay, whatever.. I just NEED this song!)

A Ghost...definately.


It's absolutely excellent for funeral.


"They're calling you

Some kind of ghost

But I know that's not true


Cause time and time again I spoke

And I have spoke with you


They're saying I

Am some kind of ghost

But that's so hard to say


Maybe I'll go

Maybe you're safe


No there's no way to say...


And I would love you

To come over

And I would love you
