    my Father had that played at his funeral, he'd play it in the car because it reminded him of his Father, it's a difficult listen now he's gone..

    That line ‘I wasn’t there that morning when my father passed away’ gets me, I didn’t make it to the Infirmary in time on the morning he went.

    I Bet Mate.
    Couldn’t get home in time for my Mother’s passing. (They sent me back to America about 3 weeks before hand)

    Anyway....that song is indeed a choker.

    Nimrod for me as well.

    Strange that for such a beautiful piece of music I just now associate it with sad times ( played at so many funerals).

    Gabriel’s Oboe by Ennio Morricone.

    The Smiths have a few tracks that really cut it in the tear-jerker stakes.
    'Last night I dreamt...'
    'There is a light that never goes out'
    'I know it's over'
    And many more...

    It's odd, because they can also be so very, very funny.

    Myfanwy - memories of my late mother.

    The second verse of the hymn "How great thou art":

    When through the woods and forest glades I wander
    And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
    When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
    And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

    Although my father died 25 years ago I still cannot sing this verse as I get a lump in my throat. It brings back so many memories.

    When my partner was dying from alzheimer's in sat by her bed,
    although she was not awake i think she was aware of music,
    i played "you are my sunshine" over and over cos she always laughed at the extra "when skys are gray" we added at City matches
    that and Fix You by coldplay
    both songs well me up when i hear them

    “When I am Laid in Earth” also known as Dido’s Lament from the opera Dido and Aeneas by Purcell. Often played in instrumental form on occasions such as Remembrance Day but not anywhere near as moving when sung. I also remember seeing on TV Grace Kelly’s funeral in 1982 with Prince Rainier sitting on his own with tears streaming down his face whilst an orchestra played Barber’s Adagio for Strings. Very moving.
