Favourite Funeral songs
Britains favourite funeral song, according to the Daily Star is ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE by Monty Python.
The times they are a changing, as someone once said.
Queen Victoria might not have been amused, but many funerals in the 21st Century are lighter celebrations of someone’s life rather than a simple farewell.
You pays your money and makes your choice, as they say!
Number 2 is MY WAY BY FRANK SINATRA,
followed by OVER THE RAINBOW by Eva Cassidy.
Number 4 WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD BY LOUIS ARMSTRONG.
Number 5 HALLELUYAH BY LEONARD COHEN – like all of the songs, not to everyones taste, but I am certainly a fan. There is plenty of choice in these ten songs, something to fit most personalities!
Number 6 WIND BENEATH MY WINGS BY BETTE MIDLER
Number 7 WISH ME LUCK AS YOU WAVE ME GOODBYE BY GRACIE FIELDS
Number 8 UNFORGETTABLE BY NAT KING COLE
At a surprisingly lowly number 9 IMAGINE BY JOHN LENNON but I guess that is my age and I suspect it will rise up the charts as the baby boomers depart.
Number 10 is pretty appropriate: DON’T YOU, FORGET ABOUT ME BY SIMPLE MINDS
That is a pretty wide range of funeral songs to choose from. Maybe they have included one for you!
