A Vulcan funeral dirge was a type of music performed at Vulcan funerals.

While collecting plant specimens with Lieutenant Tuvok in 2372, Neelix claimed that the most cheerful Vulcan music he could find in USS Voyager's Vulcan database was a traditional funeral dirge that began with the line,"Oh starless night of boundless black". (VOY: "Tuvix")

When The Doctor prevented several Voyager crewmembers from sleeping in sickbay by keeping it lit in 2374, Neelix told him they'd then hold a sing-along, including a Vulcan funeral dirge, some Talaxian rondos, and the classics of Klingon opera; The Doctor then conceded. (VOY: "Demon")

Q, Junior, likened that Icheb's 2378 report on James T. Kirk made Kirk sound about as exciting as a Vulcan funeral dirge. Q Junior himself felt that Kirk, despite being a "lowly Human", at least "had pizzazz." (VOY: "Q2")
