So, which bar do we meet you in then? Just to say goodbye and all. Spill a few drops on your head and all.

Yeah, this isn’t about thinking about mortality - it’s about what would you like to have on a playlist at the end (and you can’t pick RP)?

Assuming that radio like RP isn’t an option, what would you put on your “Before I go” playlist? Would you assign it to someone? “You know, if something were to happen to me, can you do me this favor…?”

Are you operating a radio, Sir? - Oh, f... me. Got it now!
Dunno about the laws and regs in your country when it comes to the undertaker, sorry!

Yet, since your country is (was?) supposed to be way more liberally organized than mine, there could be ways for some private creativity involved which is strictly impossible over here? - Just guessing at this point. - For example, burying someone on private grounds is strictly forbidden here in Prussia, natürlich!

I remember my grannie had a "Sterbe-Versicherung", covering for the inescapable undertaker-expenses. Such insurance-policies have latterly been renamed as "life-insurance", ya sure of course! In her days, it was normal to rent a grave for a lifetime-lease that lasted 24, 49, or 99 and more years. Families used to have their places (family graves). Since no-one's gonna pay for the lease anymore, ours has been flattened lately.

Few years ago when a close friend deceased, his brother got him cremated in a neighboring country, just so he could keep his ashes and after smuggling them back across the border (illegally), to spread them to the sea where he'd lived. The way he himself had wanted it... a quite rare occasion.

When "lying there", I'd much prefer silence, I guess. But for an after-party this should be played for me as I wouldn't want anyone to mourn badly (even if this might be my own selfish, wishful thinking):

Yep, that is pretty morbid. For me, the biggest problem about being locked in would be the lack of choice. You could put on Beethoven's symphonies (all nine of them) on an endless loop and I'd probably still freak out. 

I just hope someone pulls the plug in time.  (dang, better get on to that living will thing.. )

My boyfriend already has strict instructions about what to put in my earbuds if the day ever comes.  Hopefully, it won't come to that, but.....
