Magnetic Fields' "Meaningless": I have thought about funeral playlists before; this song is always on them.

A great breakup song, but the lyrics are vague enough it works almost as well from beyond-the-grave. Emotional tone: bittersweet mixture of explicit nihilism and implicit "still, that was pretty awesome."

Plus the bridge is so damn funny:
"And if some dim bulb should say / we were in love in some way,
Kick all his teeth in for me -
And if you feel like keeping on kicking, feel free"
