Ray Charles: I Can't Stop Loving You

Thanks to Marcia Stagg for a list that includes something very new by Antony and the Johnsons and something that goes back to the early 60s by the great Ray Charles.

I Can’t Stop Loving You: Ray Charles

A great favourite that spans so many years. The message is in the title…memories of fond times mean that even when someone’s gone, the love lives on.

This Woman’s Work: Kate Bush

An emotional tour de force by Kate Bush. Gushingly sentimental, but very moving for those who understand the doubts and fears that go with loving someone.

The Great White Ocean: Antony and the Johnsons

Antony Hegarty has come up with the ultimate funeral song. As someone dead or dying, he sings to each of his family members. This is a hauntingly beautiful tune and poetic lyrics.

If You Leave Me Now: Chicago

A simple sad song that shows that it’s only when you lose somebody that you realise how much you love them.

Killing Me Softly: Roberta Flack

This is a suitable goodbye song as it describes how someone you love sometimes knows you better than you know yourself.
