Will admit I've thought about this myself and for family, so will share some of the songs that have stuck with me. Ultimately, I'd probably still go with the song that has the most meaning for you.

Some classics:







IMHO the best version of this song. Her version of Autumn leaves would also be suitable



If you're in the mood for something more uplifting.






Something not too serious.



Ending song to Cowboy Bebop - a sad, but epic track - one of my favourites.



This one makes me think about my parents.



An underrated song by Bill Medley, has a tinge of regret to it.



Self explanatory - one for the survivors.

It is very personal and you will know what is right for you
Sadly people don’t discuss passing
Everyone should amongst friends and family and chat about it
I am a Gurrumul fan his mesmerising voice tone is so comforting ( RIP )


I have been blessed to see him live he did a prelude to Elton John up here

No one likes Delta it seems but a nice rendition of country with him



Hoping the tones comfort you

Still falling
Breathless and on again
Inside today
Beside me today
Around broken in two
'Till you eyes shed
Into dust
Like two strangers
Turning into dust
Till my hand shook with the way I fear

I could possibly be fading
Or have something more to gain
I could feel myself growing older
I could feel myself under your fate
Under your fate


It was you breathless and tall
I could feel my eyes turning into dust
And two strangers turning into dust
Turning into dust





For all I've been blessed with in my life
There was an emptyness in me
I was imprisoned by the power of gold
With one kind touch you sent me free
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love is not worth goin through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life I was loved by you

Sorry to hear you are having to plan for this Deaneus!

My sister actually ran a 'death over dinner' with my family. It sounds a bit morbid but we all sat down for a meal and discussed in frank terms what we would want if we passed. It was actually really surprising what you find out. Can be very comforting when someone does pass, knowing you arranged it according to their wishes. Takes some of the stress away for those left behind too.


My suggestions:



'Boy with a Coin' and their version of 'Such Great Heights' are also excellent.



Think someone mentioned both the singer and the song but not together.



If you are looking for something more modern and Australian.



Not normally a Coldplay guy but is a very good song. Worth checking out the entire 'Garden State' soundtrack.



Will probably make any Scrubs fan cry immediately though.
 

Deaneus!

I saw I&W when they played at the Gov maybe three years ago, fantastic, and to my shock he had Sebastian Steinberg, ex-Soul Coughing bassist performing - great show

and I’m forever hearing good things about the Garden State soundtrack
