Funeral Music

Abide With Me is my favourite hymn and I have two different versions of it on my iPod. I’ve liked it for quite some time, but I’ve heard it at every funeral I’ve been to (I think) and I’ve realised that, now, it’s a little bit more of a sad song for me because of that. If, say, ten people I knew suddenly died over the next month and then Abide With Me was at ALL of their funerals, I don’t think I’d be able to casually enjoy the song anymore due to the association. So this leads me to a conclusion: why would I want my favourite song played at my funeral? That will stop the people I know from enjoying that song because I’ve then tarnished it with sad memories! Why not just always play absolutely awful rubbish at funerals? That’ll save the songs.
