                                                                         DANIEL MUDIE CUNNINGHAM

                 What song do you want played at your funeral? Daniel Mudie Cunningham has been asking that
             question of artists and artworkers throughout 2007. Over 150 people answered it in all manner of ways
          that ranged from the profound to the playful. Some of the songs selected deliberately tug at the heartstrings,
                while others make you want to drop everything and dance. The idea for Funeral Songs is based in
                personal experience. Weeks before the artist’s brother unexpectedly died in 2000, he’d mentioned
                    what song should be played at his funeral. Amid the grief, the song choice was forgotten.
                      Now recalled several years on, the song features in Cunningham’s curated readymade
                                             archive of music you can live or die to.
