Memorial Service Music – (I Did It) My Way?
Is there a song (or a few) that you’d want played at your own funeral memorial service or celebration of life gathering, for the people that are remembering and thinking of you after you’re gone?
(I Did It) My Way (1969) was written by Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka, based on the french song Comme d’habitude (As Usual) (1967), and was written for Frank Sinatra after Sinatra made a comment to him about quitting the business/retiring. Frank Sinatra’s version of My Way was released in early 1969 and although it’s top spot on the Billboard charts was #27 in the US thanks older adults (baby boomer parents and grandparents), My Way went to #5 in the UK and spent 75 weeks in the UK Top 40, another 49 in the Top 75.
Is My Way on your list of top songs to celebrate the life and memories of yourself or a loved one at their memorial service?
