I know its a weird thing to ask, but this topic came up in my Better Blogging Group and I got curious. I have been lucky not to have attended many funerals but I am genuinely fascinated by the songs people choose. A close friend of mine recently chose ‘Bad moon rising’ by CCR, which made me smile as it is a song that you have to play loud and I know that is why he wanted it played.
I have so many songs that I say ‘oooh I love this one!’ but which one would I want played? and what experience would you want your audience to have? Then it came to me. Recently I have fell for this song as it makes me smile every time I play it. I play it as the last song in my running tracks and it never fails to get me in the best mood for the day.
I would want people to celebrate that day. I would want them to know that it was my destiny to go when and how I went and that was my life – short or long – that was it. This song sets me up for a great day and if I could give just a little of that to my friends and family on that day… how special would that be.
It may be naive of me to think I could do that with a song, perhaps that is true – but then I am naive at times – so why not give them a little of that too.
If you had the choice what would your ‘song’ be? What would you want your last message to people be?
