All right, we haven’t done a music diversion in a while, so let’s go back to your music collection today and discuss something we’ve all, at the very least, thought about a time or two in our lives. First, what’s your ideal wedding song, either the one you played at your wedding, or the one you’d want to play at your wedding [and speaking of weddings, I hope I’m not talking out of turn here, but our own illustrious Ranylt Richildis is getting hitched this weekend, selfishly disregarding the huge slate of new releases on Friday in favor of wedded bliss. Where are your priorities, Ms. Richildis? (and many, many congrats, by the by)]. Second, you’re dead. Welcome to the afterlife. What song would you want played at your funeral service? Third, you’re the best relief pitcher in the majors (i.e., you’re not Eric Gagne). It’s the bottom of the ninth and you’re about to run out of the bullpen. What’s your anthem? And finally, a suggestion from reader Cindy: What’s your favorite song lyric?

I’ll get us started:

1. Wedding Song: “The Luckiest” Ben Folds (hey! It was at least a year before it was a cliché).
2. Funeral Song: “My Telly’s Gone Bung” by Crowded House.
3. Bullpen Song: “My Ass is on Fire,” by Mr. Bungle.
4. Favorite song lyrics: “Battered Old Bird,” by Elvis Costello.
