Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
I was once at a cremation where "Colours of Day" was sung as the coffin went into the furnace. The congregation singing "So light up the fire and let the flame burn" struck me as apposite, to say the least!

On reflection, I think it would probably be "The Unquiet Grave" - without a doubt the best song about letting go of people who've died that I've ever heard.
