When Insects Rule the World: The Playlist

Dana's theme for this edition of When Insects Rule the World was "Funeral Songs", where we (mostly Dana) posed the question: If you died right now, what song would you want played at your funeral?

Here's the playlist we (mostly Dana) came up with:

Explosions in the Sky - Your Hand in Mine (The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place, 2009)

Dana's - Frightened Rabbit - Head Rolls Off (The Midnight Organ Fight, 2008)

Doug Hoyer's - The Burning Hell - Last Will and Testament (Tick Tock, 2008)

Woodpigeon - I Live a Lot of Places (Treasury Library Canada, 2008)

The Kinks - Strangers (Lola versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One, 1970)

Shotgun Jimmie - Bedhead (The Onlys, 2007)

Monolithic Cloud Parade - Do Ghosts Dream of Death? (Children with Wolf Heads, 200...9?)

Mine - Joel Plaskett - Natural Disaster (La De Da, 2005)

Dan Mangan's - Radiohead - Street Spirit (The Bends, 1995)

Wintersleep - Home (Wintersleep, 2003)

I'm sure Dana's going to post a more complete list up at his blog and include who each song was dedicated to. I'm sure of it.
