Tonight’s prompt is the top 5 songs you would want played at your funeral. I haven’t looked at anyone else’s post because I wanted to see how similar or different our selections were.
Number One is easy: If I Ever Leave this World Alive by Flogging Molly:
Number Two is from Barrage an awesome string ensemble I have seen more that once with my daughter. This one is called Mountain Spring:
Number Three is Bring Him Home from Les Miserables by Colm Wilkinson. I saw him perform it in Toronto and Buffalo and I just sob every time:
Number Four is one of my favorite hymns from when I was little. It’s called The Prayer of St Francis, sometimes called Let There Be Peace on Earth:
Number Five is a more modern hymn, more the praise song genre. I have only learned it the last few years, but it’s a beautiful song. It’s called Open the Eyes of My Heart and this is the Mercy Me version:
