Tuesday (8/30/11) 9:22am - ... wherein Peter posts a song that he wants played at his funeral.

Day 24:  A song that you want played at your funeral.

R. E. M., "Sweetness Follows"

This is another situation that I hadn't really thought about.  I don't think this song would work that well at the ceremony itself, but somehow it feels right (if sad) for people to listen to this after I've left the party.  I feel like it would provide closure.  Let the last chord fade away.  Let go.  Move on.

(Honorable mention here to Son Volt's "Windfall", for similar reasons.)
