Oasis: Don't Look Back In Anger
Norman Jenrick's five to be remembered by can best be described as sentimental.
Several of these are already popular secular songs at funerals. Consider them if you want them weeping into their tissues.
Don't Look Back In Anger: Oasis
Catchy and poignant song, one of Oasis’ best known tracks. Bit of a Brit pop anthem.
The World’s Greatest: R. Kelly
Inspirational song that says believe that you are the best in the world. “I’m the star up in the sky.”
One Sweet Day: Mariah Carey & Boyz ll Men
Wringing the last bit of sentimentality out of a weepy lyric, it will have them reaching for the tissues.
Yesterday: The Beatles
