Re: Forever Autumn
From that album I’d suggest that The Spirit of Man would be more appropriate (the original version with Phil Lynott - the 2009 version isn’t as good). Maybe Thunder Child.

Or how about Zeppelin - Kashmir ? One of Robert Plant’s solo efforts Dirt in a Hole might work, too.

Re: Forever Autumn
But it's a bit presumptuous for a funeral, saying everybody's sad because I'm not there etc.

If you can't do it when you're dead, when can you do it? But, I get what you are saying. I was thinking of that song if I lose someone close to me.

When I'm gone I hope anyone who cares will celebrate how much I enjoyed my life. It really has been a lot of fun!

Really the whole album is a great listen. I have the original vinyl and the cds.

Or how about Zeppelin - Kashmir ? One of Robert Plant’s solo efforts Dirt in a Hole might work, too.

And Stairway to Heaven.

I'm thinking a 2 week Woodstock Rock Festival Funeral is what we all want and deserve!

I do like that one - but prefer The Galaxy Song (sometimes called The Universe Song) for the punchline at the end.

Monty python - The Universe song which also goes under the name of The Galaxy song
