FUNERAL WISH At my funeral I want you to put on the J Geils Band vinyl 33 RPM “Blow Your Face Out” and dance until you’re sweated through because when it comes down to it life ain’t nothin’ but a house party. That’s my dying request. And, if instead, you play On Eagles Wings I will rise from the casket and smash that record like the woman in It’s a Wonderful Life because I don’t want to be raised up like a raptor I want to cut a rug until I hurt
