Most beautiful funeral I have ever been to and I have been to a lot of them…. You sheltered me from harm Kept me warm, kept me warm You gave my life to me Set me free, set me free. You taught me how to love What a time, what a time You never said too much, But still you showed the way.

I had only met my wife 9 months before We had just moved into our first home I,Had never met the parents. She was There was much repressed guilt from both parents,and I felt their sadness and the finality of kind words left forever unsaid. I was living in New Zealand at the time My ex wife is a Kiwi and they tend to be emotionally uptight like the English Stiff upper lip sort of crap The police came and collected my wife to take her to Auckland Hospital a couple of days later,to officially identify her sister.

I have not listened to much music in last few years and relived my younger days while reading some of the recommendations. Your 16 songs are a perfect place for agnostics, atheist, nonbelievers and those who self-identify as Spiritual but not religious.
Not a dry eye in the room. Stairway to Heaven is a classic …. I had it played at my daughters funeral. I will see you again.. The most fitting song that I have heard was for my fun loving and crazy Aunty. I really need uplifting hyms, for people to hear I do not want any sad hymns can you please suggest some, perhaps 6 , thank you so much.

Hello Heather. I would definitely check out the songs listed above you can listen to most on YouTube for free. Your funeral director is also a great source of information for these kinds of questions, so we recommend reaching out to them during the pre-planning process to help!
Wising you all the best. It looks like you can get it in any name. I also like the patty cake song. Sam Tsui.. Hello Sally! If you are holding a funeral that is a public event, you may need to look into obtaining a license. We recommend speaking to a licensing agency if you have further questions.
It fits her perfectly. It is beautifully written and the melody gets so emotional. He wrote this song following the death of his songwriting partner, John Lennon. Beautiful acoustical guitar. Shine on you crazy diamond. I think the song Into the west by Annie Lennox would be a great Funeral song. Really hard song to listen to and not cry though. On November 14th, we will honor her request…. I wrote this song for a co-worker and friend who died after 18 years working together.
I adapted it for almost names and familial titles e. I would appreciate your listening to it and sharing it with your friends if you deem appropriate. Thank you.

Q’s and A’s on the Guardian Angels | mystical | Angel quotes, Angel cards, Angel prayers
Here are my suggestions. The best version is, of course, play by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. This song is really not about you or your group of friends getting up for your last chance to dance. It is about asking the dearly departed, the corpse being carried around in that casket, to break out of their final place of confinement in order to experience a last chance to dance. Irreverently appropriate, I believe, for any list of funeral songs.
And, you can dance to it. The lovers of Jazz do so at every Jazz Funeral! Of course, the casket must be conveniently placed under the refreshments table so that the corpse can help keep the booze cold. Billy Bragg was one of those recipients. This song is his tribute to Woody. In this one of many possible worlds, All for the best or some bizarre test?
It is what it is and whatever, Time is still the infinite jest. The measure of a life is a measure of love and respect, So hard to earn so easily burned The measure of a life is a measure of love and respect, So hard to earn so easily burned. The treasure of a life is a measure of love and respect, The way you live, the gifts that you give. The future disappears into memory With only a moment between. Forever dwells in that moment, Hope is what remains to be seen. My best friend, confidant, mentor and role model, just passed on to a much more beautiful place.
Her step family, mine too, I guess, kept me at bay, deceiving and lying to me about incidents that happened to her. I was not part of any funeral arrangements, except for buying her clothes, picking out a few photos and I got to request one song. It was one of the most triumphal moments of the day. What a beautiful song to be played for my beautiful mother.
Thank you Led Zeppelin. Appropriately respectful and uplifting at the same time. Knockin On Heavens Door is also a great song! Here comes the sun george harrison a celebration that all is ok now the sadness is over and its time to embrace the sunshine of life! Love all the comments and different choices of music chosen by your readers ,like most of them they twing the heart strings in many ways ,nice to see people sharing their special music. Sometimes sadness comes back as we put on a special track of which our loved one listened to and yet to there are are happy memories to as we unfold memory times with our favourite music of which meant so much ,everyone choices are different it is what is meant by words either sang or spoken.
Woody Guthrie. Thank you for the wonderful suggestions. It always bothers me how some of the best music about death is nearly always is overlooked. But the greatest music about death ever written, hands down, comes from the classical genre. It saddens me that so many people believe that pop music is the only music, and never look beyond it for inspiration. Makes me cry every time I hear it. I hope they play it at my funeral. I find all the old timey songs comforting. I think funeral songs should not be a time to heckle the dead.
Try and find something beautiful to help that soul find its way to the light. If you are pissed, have unfinished business find some other time to work out those frustrations. Dance on their grave and spit on it if you need to. But a funeral is a time to show respect. Be that kind of person in life. Angels Among Us is the big one for me, because in , I lost a very, very close friend her name was Stevie who in June of that year suffered fatal injuries, having been ejected in a car crash and died the next morning at the hospital.
It is a much requested and appreciated song that connects the listener to their passing friend. Here is the link to a youtube video. Bob Marier. I am so so incredibly sorry for your loss. Sending prayers of peace. We have used this song for three funerals. I should know, because in , I personally met someone whom I believed though I never had a chance to tell her this that she was my angel here on Earth, though now I personally believe that Stevie the person in question is now an angel who, 16 years after her passing, was the person sent from Heaven to watch over me in life, and now continues watching over me as an angel in Heaven and will for as long as I live.
These are wonderful suggestions… I am not religious, but for sure know there is a higher power out there…. Best closing song ever! Talking Old Soldiers — Elton John An old man in a bar telling a patron about missing departed friends and how memories will live on after we pass. My family knows that this is the song for my funeral. It makes me tear up knowing I will be remembered. I have picked out my funeral music just not sure on the order I keep changing my mind.
