Songs for Cory's Wake

After being MIA for a few years, I figured out where I had stored away my text file with my wake playlist. I added a few songs I had jotted down on a post-it, but need to add a dozen or more songs to this soon.

If you outlive me and show up at my wake, here is what I have set for the playlist so far (in rough playing order):

(Definitely first) Prince – “Let’s Go Crazy”
Howard Jones – “Life in One Day”
XTC - “Grass”
Talking Heads - “Naive Melody (This Must Be the Place)”
Pixies “Wave of Mutilation (uptempo version)”
Bjork - “Hyperballad”
Eric Idle/Monty Python - "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life"
Violent Femmes – “Blister in the Sun”
Barenaked Ladies – “Unfinished”
Ben Folds Five - “Underground”
Joe Jackson - “Steppin' Out”
The Grays – “Very Best Years”
Double Trouble – “In the Garden”
Beatles – “In My Life”
Jamie Cullum – “All at Sea”
Zero 7 - “Destiny”
Beach Boys – “God Only Knows”
“How Great Thou Art” - print lyrics and sing
Violent Femmes – “Good Feeling”
Crowded House – “All I Ask”
Jeff Buckley – “Last Goodbye”
