People come and go, but their memories will live on. It is very difficult for a bride and groom to have a special loved one pass early and not be able to physically attend their wedding. Therefore, we have assembled a list of our favorite in memory of songs. The songs, can be played during the wedding ceremony or the wedding reception.
7. Tears In Heaven – Eric Clapton
Eric wrote this song after the passing of his son.
Our favorite phrase in the song is as follows: “Beyond the door, there’s peace I’m sure, and I know there’ll be no more, tears in heaven”.
6. One More Day – Diamond Rio
This is a great generic song for all the loved ones lost too early. One More Day is themed around having just one more day with a deceased friend or loved one and what we would do if we had the day.
5. Gone Too Soon – Michael Jackson
This song was dedicated to the memory of Micheal’s friend Ryan White, who was expelled from school for having HIV/AIDS.
4. Arlington – Trace Adkins
This is a great military themed song.
Our soldiers are our heroes and should be remembered and never forgotten. They have provided us our freedom.
3. When I Look To The Sky – Train
This song is a great current mainstream rock song.
A great phrase in the song “When I look to the sky, something tells me you’re here with me and you make everything alright”.
2. People Are Crazy – Billy Currington
This is our oddball pick but one of our favorites.
The song is about a man meeting a second man in a bar and the second man passes away. The chorus of the song is said by the second man at the bar – God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy. The first man leaves a six-pack on the dead man’s grave out of respect.
1. My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion
This was the main theme song of the movie Titanic.
The song is about how to carry on after the death of a loved one.
