Not trying to be a downer or anything, but I genuinely find this interesting: In a recent poll coming out of Britain, voters declared Frank Sinatra's "My Way" to be the most popular non-classical, non-religious song to play at funerals. The others in the top five make sense — "Wind Beneath My Wings," "Time To Say Goodbye," "Angels," and "Over The Rainbow," in order — but some of the other favorites are amusing. It makes me wonder, is it nicer to have a serious and sentimental song at a funeral? Or something more lighthearted?
Apparently, "AC/DC's 'Highway to Hell' has stormed into the funeral charts along with Queen's 'Another One Bites The Dust,'" and even the theme song to "The Benny Hill Show" was mentioned. Personally, I think my pick right now would be "Break on Through (to the Other Side)" by the Doors. Any other suggestions?
