Eddie Murphy reveals what he wants his future funeral to look like

American actor Eddie Murphy, best known for his roles in the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, has shares how he sees his futur funeral. He doesn't want people to be sad that day, so he has already warned his family how to behave. Now it is time for the fans to find out.

In the US, it is quite common to play the deceased's favorite song at a funeral ceremony, so Eddie Murphy wants to keep this tradition alive. While lyrical music is mostly used for funerals, the actor wants the legendary hit Axel F by Harold Faltermeyer to be played at his ceremony. He told about this in an interview with Kevin McCartney.

The celebrity chose this track for a reason. The recent chapter of Beverly Hills Cop is about Axel Foley, played by Eddie Murphy. And the song Axel F is known to everyone who has ever seen the video with the gray animated frog Crazy Frog, who rides around the city on an imaginary motorcycle.

"And I think it's cool to have music that you can turn on and know that I'm going to leave to it. And I'll be in restaurants and hear this music in the background, and I think, 'Wow, this is cool, I have James Bond theme music, Indiana Jones, this is cool!' It's cool. Someone asked me, 'Have you ever thought about playing a black James Bond over the years?' I said I don't need to, I have Axel Foley, I already have a character, I don't need to be some black James Bond. I have Axel Foley, he has the soundtrack and everything else. You can literally play it. You know, one day when I die, in 50 years, I can play it at my funeral and people will be smiling," Eddie Murphy said.

The star added that he would not want people to be sad and shed tears at his funeral. And in general, he doesn't think he will be buried in the traditional way. But even if that happens, the actor wants everyone to smile.

"People would smile at the funeral. I mean, I'm going to die like everybody else, but they know there's no funeral, and they'll just, you know, just let me go in peace," the actor said.

The song Axel F was the original soundtrack of the first part of Beverly Hills Cop in 1984 and was already at the top of the charts. The track got its name in honor of the movie's protagonist Axel F.
