One Question Interviews: Pinned In Place

Sean Arenas 

SPB: What song would you want played at your funeral? 

Sean: It took me a bit to decide what song because I don't want something totally depressing playing at my funeral.

So, I figured Tom Waits' "Anywhere I Lay My Head" perfectly combines both the downbeat and the upbeat. Waits' gravelly vocals and vagabond lyrics--"anywhere I lay my head, boys, I will call my home"--are supported by a mournful brass section, but then the ending erupts into New Orleans-style parade music. Perfect, man. Put me in the ground with that one playing.
