    A New Hope and End Credits. Then everyone would not be sad at my death and they would be hopeful for the future. Yay.

    Wow, GK dredged this thread up from the depths of the forums! Good thread though.

    Augie's Great Municipal Band.


    "I'm outta here, you Earth-bound suckers! I'm kickin' back and lovin' Heaven right now, so stop crying over that old flesh-sack; that was never really me, just a place where I stayed for a while. "Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter!" So be happy- I'm free from pain and suffering now, and I hope someday you'll be coming to join me!"

    Somber funerals are for people who think they're headed for somber places, I say. ;)


    Death, where is thy sting?

    You don't seem to have taken the bit about Augie being the Emperor's theme into consideration.:p

    Rightly said.

    "Rejoice for those that have become one with the force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not."

    Funerals should be a celebration of the person's life, not some pathetic sob-fest. Which is why Qui-Gon's funeral would never be played at mine.

    Yoda's Theme. It's peaceful, soothing, and speaks volume's of how I believe and who I am.

    No Star Wars music for me...Its sounds too attached to the films for me. When I think of the Force Theme I think of Luke and when I hear any of the Love themes I think Han and Leia...


    But if it had to be a film score it would be 'Samwise the Brave' for 'The Two Towers'. Captures the somber tones of hopelessness (sp?) while still giving a sense of meaning to life.

    The song that plays during Padme's & Qui-Gon's funeral. That is perfect.

    And why, DarthAJ (any relation to AJ Vader, the Great Mixer?) should you want somber hopelesness at your funeral? :confused: Doesn't seem a very comforting thought for your next of kin... ;)

    No relations. :p Samwise the Brave conveys the sense of a temporary grief within the first minute or so but then it turns around and gives the listener a sense of courage for the future (in regards for a death) IMO. It is the musical experiance of "it may look bad here, but in the end all will be right" and oddly enough one of the main themes in Star Wars.

    Ah. Well, in that case, sounds like an excellent choice!

    I just wanted to say that this is a great thread and I have been giving serious consideration as to what my choice would be. I need to evaluate all my options before I give my final decision. Although short, I would chose Darth Vader's Death.

    Gotta agree with A New Hope/End Credits from RotS, or maybe Theme from Schindler's List.

    The last song I'd ever want played for me would be...
    RotS Throne Room version, full orchestra. and then just the SW theme. By a flute.

    EDIT: If just one: the first.

    EDIT: Darth Vader's Death = :_|
