Video: Monty Python top Britain’s funeral song chart

The Monty Python classic ‘Always look on the bright side of life’ has rocketed to the top of the charts of the most played funeral songs in the UK, knocking Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way’ off the top spot for the first time in over ten years. The chart, based on over 30,000 funerals, details the tunes of choice being played to celebrate and remember the lives of loved ones, reflecting a marked shift – even a generational change - towards more personalised and individual funeral services. And while traditional favourites such as the Lord is My Shepherd and Abide with Me are still a mainstay of funerals, pop songs, golden oldies, humour and sport themes make up 60% of the Top Ten choices.
