'Goodbye My Lover' - y'know, one of many songs about some pretty face that ol' ugger James Blunt likes to bash one off to (possibly) - has been named the song that _most UK residents would like to soundtrack their funeral.
Fifty-one per cent of those polled - of which there were 5,000 individuals - selected the song above previous number one 'Angels' by Robbie Williams. Which suggests that fifty-one per cent of those polled are filthy sadists who hate their families and friends.
After all, it's not like you can hear things - even spectacularly awful ballads - when you're dead.

Say the people at The Bereavement Register:
_ "(This) 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. Everyone has a favourite song that means something very special to them, often connected to a particular time and place."_
