James Blunt's Goodbye My Lover is the song most requested at British funerals and remembrance services, closely followed by Robbie Williams' Angels, according to a survey released today. Research for the Bereavement Register found 51 per cent of people ask for a specific song to be played at their funeral and 79 per cent talk with family and friends about possible song choices.

The survey of 5000 people also uncovered some unusual final choices, including I'll Steep When I Am Dead by Bon Jovi. "The top 20 really shows how far we have come in terms of saying goodbye. Gone are the dirges of yore, instead we are seeing contemporary music that is easier to relate to," said Mark Roy, founder of the Bereavement Register. ' There have been some consistent favourites over recent years like Wind Beneath My Wings at No. 4 and Candle In The Wind - a reworked version of which played at Princess Diana's funeral in 1997-which was at No. 6.
Others in the top 20 included Knocking On Heaven's Door by Bob Dylan and, perhaps unexpectedly, I Want To Live Forever from the movie Fame.

The top 10 requested songs were:
1. Goodbye My Lover - James Blunt
2. Angels - Robbie Williams
3. I've Had The Time Of My Life - Jennifer Wames and Bill Medley
4. Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler
5. Pie Jesu - Requiem
6. Candle In The Wind - Elton John
7. With Or Without You - U2
8. Tears From Heaven - Eric Clapton
9. Every Breath You Take - The Police
10. Unchained Melody - Righteous Brothers
