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)

The Weakerthans - Sounds Familiar (Fallow, 1999)

The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize?? (Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, 2002)

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.


  1. That 'Heads Roll Off' video is so awesome.

    Nice touch!

  2. Also - glowing, ghostly Joel Plaskett is oddly appropriate for the theme.
