    What song would you pick for your funeral service?

    Post  EarthAngel on Tue Sep 05, 2017 10:11 am

    Out of interest, what would you choose to have playing at your service ?

    I would have 'To where you are' by Josh Groban, he is my favourite and the words are just gorgeous.

    Can't decide whether that would be entering or leaving, but its perfect ! 

    Not to sound morbid people!   :happy:

    Oh I tough one, I have so many that I would find hard to choose a specific one for my funeral but I think it would range from Kate  Bush the Gaelic ,  song, Led Zepplin Ramble on then to finish pink Floyd or Van Morrison.

    I want to be sprinkled into the sea, so perhaps Fingals Cave by Felix Mendelssohn or Sailing By the music they use for the shipping forecast will do me  :rainbow: xxx

    I agree that funerals are for the living not the dead, I am happy for my family to decide if they want a grave or whatever, perhaps sprinkling me at sea to classical music would be too sad but who knows, maybe they'll be having a disco, laughing cheerily and hurling me overboard! :giggles:  xxx

    I'm all for people having a good time of course and taking some of the decisions on how to proceed, not being too serious otherwise its just morbid! A disco sounds awesome !

    I don't however like it when people just use em as an excuse for a p*** up like everything else, baby's christenings etc. Does my head in. I remember when a local boy died cause of the booze and reports came back that everyone just got steaming drunk at his wake. Seems a bit rubbish to me.

    I'd be gutted if I had people turn into drunken disrespectful idiots at my funeral! just my opinion though!

    I agree, I think I will say that any disco at sea cannot be turned into a booze cruise!


    In Ireland days like Saint Patrick's day is often ruined by people using it as an excuse to drink to access and behave badly, I can't stand that. xxx

    Well I agree with that too, just not drinking to excess. 

    We had a party and a singsong in the pub after my dad died we did drink but not too much. We sang all his favourite songs, his 96 year old sister sang a song especially for my dad, we had so much fun we felt a bit guilty afterwards but also knew it is just what dad would've wanted. xxx

    Not no drinking at all... I just thought in the case of the boy i mentioned earlier its a little insensitive in my eyes. Just cant stand hooliganism!  :SH: 

    Hahaha! Seasprite that could be a thing... a disco at sea... just wow   :evil:
