Picked up some other good ideas below:
I Can Only Imagine. (But I'll haunt the singer if they say "i-MA-junn" like Third Day does! It's /i-MA-jin/).
Holy Ground.
Ev'ry Breath you take - a slow, gentle, comforting acoustic version with just singer and 12-string guitar.

And I forgot to mention my family's unofficial hymn, Be Thou My Vision. The tune is called Slane, which comes from our old Irish clan name, O'Dubhslaine.

The National Anthem.

Nobody sits down at my funeral.

Careful, they might sing the "Hallelujah" chorus! Nobody sits for that, either!

Amazing Grace. If that's not played at my funeral I will come back and haunt the people who planned it. If that's the only song that is played then so be it but it has to be played.

I was thinking along the line of "Metallica" The Four Horsemen......... AC-DC, For Those About To Rock........

I actually want it to be a bit lighter, so maybe "Friends are Friends forever" or Something like "Sing & be Happy"...Mom had that song at her funeral, so I hate to duplicate it...

None. I'm not a fan of music at mass.

I can't tell you for sure, but it'll be one that's a bit ironic and kind of flowy, so people can just relax a little.

God be With You 'til we Meet Again is the song I'd like played. I sang that at my grandmama's funeral.

Ron, was this a funeral for one of your friends who'd been in the wreck last week? I've been praying.

No, this was a funeral for a woman who was expected to die back in July. Hospice was called back then and she sent them home. 😂😂😂

My friend's husband had surgery for his broken hip yesterday and it went well. The collapsed lung and broken ribs are healing.

Her surviving son is still in a coma. He had a massive head injury and there is ongoing treatment with that. I will try to do better with updates on Tom's Friday polls.

Thank you so much for praying. My friend's name is Angie.

For Christian songs, two would be Majesty and O, For A Thousand Tongues To Sing. I'd also like to do like in the old classic I Love Lucy episode, and have a harpist play Take Me Out To The Ball Game.

None. I've specified no funeral for my corpse.

No service no funeral no flowers. Just a cremation and scattering of the ashes. Anything more is to hard on the living folks

To either of you: how about a memorial or a wake...? A time together and celebrate or remember. It's actually very healing for many people Who are left.

Id have an extensive playlist, less talk, more inappropriate music:
• Highway to Hell - ACDC
• Going Underground - The Jam
• Stayin Alive - The Bee Gees
• Every Breath You Take - The Police
• The Final Countdown - Europe
• Countdown Theme
And anything else i can think of that would be fun to play at a funeral over the next 70 odd years
