Dave LOVED his stereo set up and his music. This playlist is more than 11 hours and consists of mainly classic rock and some blues. We started the music as we set up tables and chairs for the party, it helped us all enjoy the moment thinking of Dave and his favorite music. The crowd at our Viking Funeral had the energy of a high school reunion. People enjoyed the music, margaritas, Mexican food from a Taco Truck, and milling about hugging each other, collectively, joyfully grieving in groups large and small all over our backyard before we lit the bonfire after dusk.
I listened to this music for inspiration, to help motivate me and my memories to keep writing until I bled out my eyes. They were the kind of tears you welcome because you know you’ve witnessed something magical in your life when they fall this hard while you laugh.
Enjoy the entire playlist on Spotify. May require downloading the app.
