So brace yourself.
I was thinking - what with all the doom and gloom that's currently around - wouldn't it be nice if I could write a post that would just raise a smile and... and 'accentuate the positive' and generally make you want to go and hug the cat.
(Go, go, hug him... hug him real tight... squeeeeeeeezzzze.)
But, as I was striving for this unerringly happy post, there was only one question that kept jumping into my head. It wouldn't go away.
So the 'happy post' turns out to be just a question.
"What song would I like to have played at my funeral?"
I know, I know, sorry, it's not exactly the cheeriest thing ever, is it? But it's what I was thinking of and I couldn't shake it off. So I'll play you the song I'd like to have played at my funeral down at the bottom.
But this all made me wonder, what tune/song would you like played at yours. Really, it did.
Now, you see, the post becomes almost salvageable. Granted, it may never be the happy-go-lucky recession-beater that I was aiming for but, at worst, we may yet achieve a little public service blogging here.
See, if you tell me what tune you want at your send-off, and then I hear that you died, I can contact the next of kin with the information.
That'd be kind of good, wouldn't it?
Perhaps you could do the same for me? I have a post prepared that's linked to my pulse so, thirty minutes after it stops, the post will come on the blog and announce my untimely... etc. Then, upon reading it, you all could email and remind my family about the song I want played.
Now, you may well ask, why doesn't the silly fecker just name the song in this epic pulse-related blog-post of his? Simple answer. That would be too easy, wouldn't it?
Anyway, here's my current funereal music. This may change as I get older and whither further, as I fully expect to. I'll keep you posted, literally.
Oh, and this song is my choice. Right? You go and get your own. Then come tell me all about it. I'd love to hear.
At least it's a change from the 'Seven Odd Things' meme, isn't it?
Okay. Are we happy yet?
