10 Totally Inappropriate Songs To Play At Your Funeral

8. Disco Inferno €“ The Trammps

BURN, BABY, BURN. Wow. Pretty intense background music when you're being pushed into the oven, but fun, nonetheless. The only thing that would make this an even more extreme send-off would be to have a life-sized dragon sitting at the opening of the crematorium. Now THAT'S a funeral.

7. Going Deeper Underground €“ Jamiroquai

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIUAC03YMlA A surprisingly bouncy tune with disturbingly dark visuals in a funeral situation. Overall a 9 out of 10 on the bad taste scale: not ideal for the faint-hearted in the family.

6. Don't Fear The Reaper €“ Blue Oyster Cult

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMYSWiPm7E0 Everybody comes into the church, has a little cry... and then this song comes on. What soothingly starts a solemn hymn soon becomes something a lot darker when you hear, "Come on baby, take my hand. Don't fear the Reaper." Everybody cries more; but not because they're scared, just because you've frightened the sh*t out of them.
