Top Ten Best Songs to Play at Your Funeral

The Top Ten
1 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

I want this song for my funeral, actually. It would be a beautiful farewell, telling them I have gained enough money to buy the stairway itself!

This is a good song to play at a funeral, but only if the person did some good things throughout their life.

Who wouldn't want this song played at their funeral? I certainly want it played at mine!

2 Hurt - Johnny Cash

It's a very sad song, and the title really reflects well how the people at your funeral must feel (unless you've been an ass all your life).

One of the saddest songs ever. Perfect for a funeral.

3 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Sorrowful jazz song. It really makes me cry, and it's relatable in the funeral context.

This would be a great song for a funeral. I would play it if I went to a funeral.

This is what I want to be played at my funeral.

4 Hotel California - Eagles
5 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton

Melancholic acoustic guitar sounds are qualifiable in funeral anthems.

This should be first. "Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?"

6 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Should be in the top 10.

7 Far from Home - Five Finger Death Punch
8 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

That is just going to make everyone at the funeral feel relaxed and not worry, isn't it?

Tough call between this and Stairway to Heaven.

9 Don't Stop Believing - Journey
10 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
The Contenders
11 Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
12 Livin on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

The saddest song ever.

13 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa
14 Yesterday - The Beatles

If you want everyone to cry their eyes out...

15 My Immortal - Evanescence

Sad piano ballad with the dark emotion compatible with the sorrowful death.

This song is beautiful and sad.

I want this at my funeral!

16 How to Save a Life - The Fray
17 How Could This Happen to Me - Simple Plan
18 Fade to Black - Metallica

This would be appropriate to play at a funeral if the person had committed suicide.

A beautiful and moving song about suicide, should be MUCH higher.

19 As - Stevie Wonder
20 All You Need is Love - The Beatles
21 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
22 Into the West - Annie Lennox

Ah man, this really is a beautiful song. I'd be happy, I'm sure, if this was played at my funeral someday.

This is a beautiful song. I would absolutely love to have this played at my funeral.

This song changed me as a person.

23 If You Wanna Get to Heaven - Ozark Mountain Daredevils

As featured in Grand Theft Auto V. If you want to get to Heaven, you have to raise a little hell.

24 Life Goes On - 2pac
25 Lazarus - David Bowie
