That's a tough question, RTB!

Always said they'd have to play "A Pagan Place" by The Waterboys at my funeral :lol!:

There really are too many great songs to choose from, my friend. In fact I wouldn't even be able to choose my top ten albums of all time. Top 100 might be ok, but still tough.

Can't think of anything more appropriate. :lol!:

It is a tough Q, Vik. Tough to name it, and tough to explain your choice. Imagine you are about to hear the last song before you know you will die, or you are about to sing one song and the whole world is listening, or you have to choose the one song that you identify with more than any other. THEN what is it? Is it still Motorhead, Waterboys and Sigur Ros? Would you choose different songs for each of these occasions? Post Youtube links, too please, fellas, I want to hear them - it's a great way of seeing another side of someone. Like Liono, with his Motorhead. I wouldn't have guessed that in a million years.
