My grandma’s funeral playlist… :(


3. Okt. 2005, 4:28

My grandma died Friday morning unexpectedly. I loved her very much… :'(

I was asked to compile the funeral playlist, so here it is for your morbid enjoyment. Be nice.

Of course, it’s personalized to my grandma and family, and all but one track (guess which?) was picked by family members other than me (my mom’s a big bluegrass fan), but I’m really happy with this order, so here goes:

01. One Particular Harbour
02. Rocky Mountain High
03. Carry Me Across the Mountain
04. Wind Beneath My Wings
05. Bridge over Troubled Water
06. Calling My Children Home
07. I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow
08. Lord, Don't Forsake Me
09. Angel Band
10. My Immortal
11. To Where You Are
12. Here With Me
13. You Raise Me Up
14. Amazing Grace
15. Largo From New World Symphony
16. Farther Along
17. House of Gold
18. You Plant Your Fields
19. Shower the People
20. Dreaming (Lucid mix) (edit)

Many thanks to all my friends who have been there for me through this and other recent shit. Love you guys… <3 :)

    Sorry to hear about your grandma, Scott. Nice playlist - it has the look/sound and broad appeal/grace/intrigue of the American heartland.

    Was your choice: Antonín Dvořák - Largo From New World Symphony?

    Thanks, y’all. I’m OK, I guess… No, that was my aunt’s, from [i]Clear and Present Danger[/i]. Mine’s the last track. ;)

    Thanks. Oh, sorry your grandma's ill, too. :( That playlist is a bit funeral-ish, but I might've put Mercury and Solace on there instead, so check that out, too.

    sorry to hear of your loss, ghost. That playlist is pretty good and that it does have a bit of sadness in it. Try also put tunes in that remember what her life was like.

    Bit late to comment, but I'm sorry to hear that all the same. I know how you feel, my grandma died a year or so ago...:(

    Sorry for your loss. Shower the People and Bridge over Troubled Water were good choices.

    That list is very beautiful, and Bridge Over Troubled Water is wonderful choice. a bit late comment, but hope you're alright too.

    Sorry about yours, too. I'm not too sad anymore though, amazingly as I've suffered from clinical depression, but I think about her a lot. Yeah, my uncle (her son) put Soggy Bottom Boys on there, which my mom found funny also. :) The small comic relief was quite welcome during her calling hours though, imaginably.

    giveuptheghost: sadly I was the one who found my grandma dead, hit me pretty hard and I miss her dearly. She always told me, you've just got to get on with it... I think that's true to this day. You will move on in due course. Nice playlist, the last track by BT is definately the erronenous entry :)

    Rocky Mountain High's by John Denver is a very nice track to include

    giveuptheghost: Belated condolences... I happened to be surfing around your site after joining your Vegans and Vegetarians group and wanted to reach out to you. Hope you're doing well.
