What would you have?
Closed

Ok, not what we really want to be thinking about, but always best to have something in mind and others aware of what we like or want when we die. I am curious, although it isn't the nicest thing to talk about or think about, it happens and we either plan it or it is left to others to plan. I know many people write their wills out, many people sort their funeral plans out etc. To me i think not only the eulogy says a lot about a person, but so does the music. We each choose music based on different reasons, i know as life goes on and on we may change our feelings towards what we may have wanted. But have you ever thought about what music or/and hymn you would like? At the moment i do love abide with me, i guess for songs it would be westlife's I'll see you again, Eva Cassidy's Songbird and not sure on another as there are so many, like: time to say goodbye, somewhere over the rainbow, wind beneath my wings, We'll meet again, Smile, etc etc. The list could go on and on. Have you got your songs done or do you know what you would liked played at your funeral?

Some songs i have never heard of before, some are obvious and some are different, but i guess it all depends on the type of person you are and what you like that matters in your choice.

Wow, such a variation from no music at all, to not really sure what to have, to just one song, etc. I guess it really is hard to decide what to do or what to have. As people are living longer i guess we can feel we have far more time, but we never know when our time is up and i guess it is better for us to arrange what we would like so that it resembles us more. It also eases the pressure put on others to sort this out which can be unfair really.

I'm not sure about my own, but for my husbands last month, I chose Birdy Wings acoustic, Bon Jovi It's my Life acoustic and Queen No-one but you.
They all suited my husband perfectly.

I want Eva Cassidy's version of 'Rainbow' at my funeral, but not just yet.

i want to be used to grow an Oak tree because apparently that is a think now. That is after Benediict Cumberbatch comes bursting into my funeral dressed as Sherlock and shouts 'Oh she's smart! Smarter than all of you and she's dead!' and runs out then someone who looks like me in the clothes in wearing the day i died come in and say it worked then walk out haha.

This is very much on my mind atm, as my husband died very recently. Our daughters and I have been talking about the funeral but, though my husband has left a will, he had no interest in stating his wishes as regards his eventual (many years ahead, he thought) funeral. We're planning to have 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot' played at the end of the service, because it does have spiritual meaning, plus my husband was a great rugby fan, where the song is often used to encourage the English team! Personally, I'd like Dave Gilmour's guitar solo from Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb' played at the end of my funeral service. It's one of my favourite pieces of music ever although, as a Christian, there must be a number of rather more spiritual songs I could choose.
