Ask a Mortician (& a Drag Queen): What Song Will Play at Your Funeral?

Here's our favorite mortician, Caitlin Doughty, hanging out with the simply sickening Laganja Estranja and talking death, Bette Midler, hooker makeup and what music they'd like to have played at their funerals.

I went through a very morbid stage when I was in high school and wrote my wishes for after death; the funeral song I chose was the music that plays at the end of Saturday Night Live — you know, the piano and the clap clap… piano, clap clap. Runners-up: "Don't You (Forget About Me)" and "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone."

Dat eye makeup. I wish I knew how to do that.

I want them to play "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" when they're lowering my coffin into the ground. And they'd better play it, or... well, nothing, I guess.
