A service to honour the life and legacy of a partner would be incomplete without a special funeral song. Funeral songs are able to express how we feel about a partner that passed away. They can also express our deepest sorrow and help us to begin healing. Some funeral songs can also help us joyfully celebrate our partners extraordinary life.
Whether you are planning a funeral, a memorial service, or a celebration of life ceremony, we are confident that you will find a meaningful funeral song from our list of most funeral songs to play at the service.
How to decide on a funeral song for a partner?
There are many options for funeral love songs, so selecting the right song for a partner can seem overwhelming! Here are some useful tips to help you find the right song.
Make a List of Songs That Would be a Good Fit
Consider the type of the service, do some homework and make a list of possible songs that you think would be a good fit for your partner.
Listen To The Words
Words of a song are just as important as the melody. It’s handy to have the lyrics to the songs while you’re listening to them. Delete any love songs from your list that don’t meet the desired message.
Ask Family and Friends For Input
When you have reduced down your list of love songs, play each song for close family members & friends who knew your partner well. Ask them which love song they think best represents the person. You can also ask if they have any love song suggestions not listed.
