A funeral service for a loved one would be incomplete without a funeral song. Funeral songs help us express how we feel about the person that passed away. They can also express our sadness and help us to begin the grieving process. Some funeral songs can also help us celebrate an extraordinary life lived, from Cradle2grave.
If you are planning a funeral, a memorial service, or a celebration of life ceremony, we trust that you will find an sentimental funeral song in our list to play at the service.
How Do You Decide On a Sentimental Funeral Song?
There are many options for sentimental funeral songs, so selecting the right song can seem overwhelming! Here are some useful tips to help you find the right song.
Make a List of Sentimental Songs That Would be a Good Fit
Consider the type of the service, do some homework and make a list of possible sentimental songs that you think would be a good fit for the person.
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 sentimental 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 sentimental songs, play each song for close family members & friends who knew the person well. Ask them which sentimental song they think best represents the person. You can also ask if they have any alternative song suggestions not listed.
