A year or so, we had two funerals in as many months. My aunt on Dads side of the family passed away after a lengthy illness. And my uncle, who wasn’t much older than me, on Mum’s side was diagnosed and passed away in a very short space of time. I wasn’t much involved in the former, but helped mum with some elements of organising my uncles funeral.
This included scanning and tidying up some old photos and locating some music.
Selecting music for my own funeral, while it may be a little morbid, is something that occasionally comes back to me. Today I’ve been listening to a fairly random selection of music on my phone. From this, I have picked the following 4 tracks I’m not 100% convinced by sailing, the others are classics:
Sarah Machlachlan – Angel
Rod Stewart – Sailing
Simon and Garfunkel – Sound of Silence
Baz Luhrmann – Sunscreen
