"Sonata Pathetique" - Ludwig van Beethoven
I have tried to learn this many times and have never finished.
Beethoven was a genius.

"Happy Birthday to You" - for the jumbled mess that is the author information click here .
Give me a few minutes and I can play this song on probly most instruments. :)
If you don't know this song perhepps it's time to stop living under a rock. Unless you've immigrated or are visiting from another country, in which case I guess you're off the hook.

"Wildflowers" - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
a) this one took me awhile to figure out..
b) i dunno if i'd be physically capable of actually playing this at my funeral
c) but it would be a good song to be played, perhaps by someone who is not me...

"Until You" - Dave Barnes
I dont know that i would want it during the ceremony. but it'll have to be in the reception mix somewhere. The first time I heard this I was at one of DB's concerts and I spent the whole song with my jaw dropped open because the song was so lovely. he definitely saw me halfway through and smiled at my astoundedness.
Coming in at a close second is this one:
"God Gave Me You" - Dave Barnes

There are actually two songs I listen to when I'm angry, depending on my mood.
shakey-fist, just-need-to-be-angry-for-a-second mood:
"I Think I'm Paranoid" - Garbage
just-breathe, calm-it-down mood:
"Strawberry Kiss" - Orien (Dub Police)
"Who Are We Fooling" - Brooke Fraser
(note: listen in HD, it sounds much better!) This song is from the album Flags. I don't really have an all-time favorite album - it rotates and changes from month to month, but I think this group of songs is amazingly written, and was probably my favorite album in 2010.

"Fallen For You" - Sheila Nicholls
When I played out more I used to cover this song a lot and the chord progressions always got my brain turned in knots. I love her songwriting and vocals. Weighty and daring at times. Thanks, Robert, for writing her name on the whiteboard in that room in ESM, oh i guess its been 3 or 4 years now since that day ...
