Music is a really important part of any funeral. It can reflect our loved ones’ personality and give comfort during a difficult time by helping recall memories of times spent together.
Last week we announced the results of our #FuneralMusic survey to discover which songs were the most requested at funerals by clients. My Way by Frank Sinatra was chosen as their top #FuneralMusic song.
Now we’d love to know what music our colleagues would choose for their own funerals. Whether it’s a tear jerker, a ballad, an inside joke or your all-time favourite song, we’d love to hear from you.
Everyone can take part, no matter what you do or where you work. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the business area you work in, your #FuneralMusic song choice and the reason why.
We’ll take a look at all your songs and stories and include as many as we can in Our Voice, the Funeralcare and Life Planning colleague magazine in July.
Personally, I’d choose Holocene by Bon Iver. To me, this song speaks about how our lives are tiny specks of dust throughout the history of the universe, but no matter how insignificant we are, there’s still ‘significance in that insignificance’.
I can’t wait to see your choices.
