Thread Name: BS: Your own funeral
Subject: RE: BS: Your own funeral
ooh I like that Jimi Hendrix idea! I love that version...great song.
I have sung at a funeral, a Scottish Gaelic lament no one understood the words to but which everyone agreed was right for the occasion...but this was without question one of the hardest things I have ever done, emotionally...trying to hold it together to sing a sad song while feeling like crying (and when everyone around you is crying)is no easy task...I pretty much broke down in tears as soon as I finished...and I have been to memorial services where the music chosen for that person was just heartbreaking..."Forever Young" by Rod Stewart, for a friend who was murdered...
I never thought about this for myself...maybe "Dun Ringtill" by Jethro Tull...
