The Top 10 Songs Played At Funerals

Here at MetroLyrics, we love a good lyrics list. From your favorite songs for your BFFs to, well, tunes about nothing, we're always excited to count down a good list or two. We're getting serious for this list, however, as we visit the top 10 songs played at funerals — can you believe there's a chart that tallies the most popular funeral songs? As dismal as it sounds, lyrics do make our world go round and represent so much that we cannot say, so it makes sense that pop music has replaced traditional hymns at funerals around the world. But what songs are the most popular? After looking at the top 10 list below, we've observed that the lyrics are all about moving on to a better place, saying goodbye, and most of all...knowing you lived your life the way you wanted to (thanks Frank!). Check the top 10 list below:

1. Frank Sinatra - "My Way"
2. Sarah Brightman - "Time To Say Goodbye"
3. Bette Midler - "Wind Beneath My Wings"
4. Eva Cassidy - "Over The Rainbow"
5. Robbie Williams - "Angels"
6. Westlife - "You Raise Me Up"
7. Gerry & The Pacemakers - "You'll Never Walk Alone"
