We can't control everything in our lives, but I like to think the one thing that we can control is what kind of music will be played when our last guy is depleted and our own "Game Over" screen fades up. If I'm leaving this world, I'm leaving on my terms. These are the classic videogame jams I want blaring at my funeral.


8. Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts: "Haunted Graveyard"



I don't think it's too much to ask that some music be played over loud speakers in the parking lot while my guests are shuffling in. I went back and forth between this song and the Level 1 music from the NES Castlevania. Both have our heroes marching through a graveyard from the get-go and I really wanted to capture this experience. You can see why this was a tough choice.

However, the "Haunted Graveyard" came out on top because it comes off as a little more tongue-in-cheek. After all, I don't want to creep out my friends and family; I want to entertain them.

I just hope that no one accidentally runs into a hideous undead creature only to get knocked back five feet and lose their clothes before making it to the building. Being the only one at the funeral in your undies has to be pretty humiliating.
