GUEST,Texas Guest Lyr Req: I need to find a song for a funeral (24) RE: Lyr Req: I need to find a song for a funeral 10 Jul 08

Funeral songs, well, I can be very "pop" oriented sometimes but the Garth Brooks song, "The Dance," has always worked for me; also, there is a christian/pop singer/songwriter by the name of Bob Bennet
who wrote a nice song called - "The Place I Am Bound," and I like it a lot too. It is a kind of up-tempo Celtic influenced view of his wake from the viewpoint of he who died - lamenting the fact that he is not there to share in the festivities, food, tales, drink, etc.

Finally, if it can be done, find out what song(s) the deceased liked,
and/or what songs the deceased wanted to be played at their funeral and go with that flow. Good Luck. Cheers.
