Now while we may not agree with Malraux on everything (mainly because we’d never heard of him until we started writing this article), we have to agree with him on this one.
When it comes to saying goodbye to a loved one, words can often fail us. Music, however, never fails to articulate those emotions. And it’s not all doom and gloom either – sombre hymns are increasingly falling out of favour at modern funerals. While emotional songs are a mainstay of funeral playlists, people are feeling increasingly comfortable opting for pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop, TV themes, and it turns out that reports of disco’s death have been greatly exaggerated.
As we mentioned in our previous post, there’s no shortage of ways to inject some fun into your funeral. There is, however, one key aspect of your funeral that we’d like to dive a little deeper into – the music.
At DeadHappy we’ve gone to the trouble of compiling a few thought-provoking funeral songs. Some are appropriate, some are possibly inappropriate, but it’s your opinion that counts at the end of the day.
