Memorial Service Music – Blue Bayou?
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?
Although Linda Ronstadt made Blue Bayou her signature song, it was co-written and first recorded by Roy Orbison in 1961; his single of Blue Bayou was released in 1963 and went to #29 on the Hot 100 charts. Baby boomer fans seemed to prefer Linda Ronstadt’s version of Blue Bayou, which went to #3 in 1977. Compare the two, and see if you can choose between them.
