Darren W. Faragher funeral directors is a family run business providing committed to organising funerals Birmingham residents will remember with fondness. Our aim is to provide grieving families the most professional and personal funeral service possible. We understand better than anyone how emotional of a time organising a funeral may be. That is why we try and accommodate everything and cater to your requirements.
Following up from trying to be accommodating, we have compiled this blog post to inform you of the top 5 modern funeral songs. It is wise to think about what music may be suitable for the funeral you are organising.
Due to secularisation, hymns are becoming less and less common at funerals now. Because this is occurring in this day and age, the services are becoming more personalised. Celebrating the life of the person who has passed away, the family and close friends tend to pick their favourite songs or those that have a special, significant meaning.
In 2016, the top five funeral songs were, as follows:
– My Way by Frank Sinatra
– Time to Say Goodbye by Katherine Jenkins
– Over the Rainbow by Eva Cassidy
– The Lord is my Shepherd (Psalm 23)
– Wind Beneath my Wings by Bette Midler
These top 5 funeral songs were taken from a survey, and the participants said these were chosen because they were largely sentimental, whilst still having room for humour. This suggests that funerals are being regarded as a place to experience defiance and hope now rather than a simple final farewell.
If you are reading this article unfortunately knowing you have to plan a funeral in the near future, then it’s probably better to plan the song choices in advance. Planning ahead is much more beneficial, and can provide peace of mind during difficult times.
