Angel.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

The Wind Cries Mary or Little Wing in my opinion

EDIT: Never mind, the two posts above me are better

when enough rednecks start talking about how awesome it is, that's when it's defined as classic rock.

Yea, I'd actually pick Castles Made of Sand to play at my funeral, and I'm not even that big on Hendrix, good song.
#12
For me it'd be a toss-up between Little Wing and Castles Made of Sand. Or both.
more sig required.

Might I suggest "1983 (A Merman Should I Turn to Be)"? If length isn't an issue, of course. I consider it Hendrix's greatest work of art, it's just a masterwork in every sense of the word.

Epic post. Wish I could say more, but I don't know much about the subconscious and other psychological stuff.

little wing fo shiz.
Quote by forsaknazrael
You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

#18
i would say little wing but its abit too short

original voodoo child? the slow one

or castles made of sand or machine gun

Little wing would be my vote. Or Wind Cries Mary btw your friend of a friend had good taste.

I say you get a medium tempo song instead of a slow one. It's a funeral, sadness won't be in short supply so they can at least give some something to keep the crowd's spirit up.....

Castles Made of Sand.

EDIT: The Star Spangled Banner would make it an epic funeral.

Changes or Machine Gun. Anything so long as its from Band of Gypsys. THe majority of Axis: Bold as Love would be acceptable as well. Changes would be the best, though. That song is awesome.

Or, maybe do something from his acoustic work.

Actually, do 1983 (A Mermaid I should Turn to be) from Electric Ladyland. That song has one of the greatest intro sounds I've ever heard.
