Saying goodbye to Dad

A lot of people would reckon this song mawkish and sentimental and, of course, in their own terms, they’d be right. But for a great many other people, this would make an excellent funeral song. Luther Vandross wrote it from his own experience of his father’s death when he (Luther) was seven. 

Even if you don’t like it, it’s got plenty of blast from the past power. 

Here’s an alternative.  

Have you got any great funeral song ideas? Tell us, please!

    I liked both these songs for the simple honesty of their grief and their yearning.

    Yes, embarrassing/cheesy somehow, but worth trying to publicly remember our fathers and attempting to recapture some early sweetness?
