Memorial Service Music – I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song?
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?
Baby boomer favourite Jim Croce‘s song I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song wasn’t released until after his tragic death in a plane crash; he was only 30 years old. The story goes that after having been on the road for a long tour, Jim Croce arrived home and didn’t tell his wife Ingrid that an entire film crew was going to show up the next day. After the film crew left, Ingrid questioned him about why they had so little money, and rather than stay and argue with her, Jim went downstairs in a temper and started playing guitar while he wrote I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song. The next morning he came upstairs and sang it to her.
