Frank a feature for funerals

Sinatra track much-chosen when it comes to funeral music.
Great deals on musical instruments
A Co-operative Funeralcare study has shown that the music instruments filled song My Way, sung by the famed Frank Sinatra, is more popular than any other contemporary track when it comes to funerals.

The song was also the most popular track overall, out of contemporary, classical or religious musical options.

Other contemporary tracks to make up the top ten, based on music requested at funerals, were Celine Dion's Titanic theme song, My Heart Will Go On, and Eva Cassidy's famous acoustic guitars version of The Wizard of Oz song Over The Rainbow, which Judy Garland sang in the film.

The Co-operative Funeralcare says that, in the past year from which this data is taken, classical options were requested at a mere four per cent of funerals, hymns at 30 per cent.

"Hymns were once the mainstay of a funeral service but pop music plays such an important part in people's lives that it now acts as the theme tune to their passing," commented the organisation's Lorinda Robinson.
