Adele, Robbie Williams most played at funerals
Los Angeles: The songs of Adele and Robbie Williams are most played at the funerals.
Williams` "Angels" and Adele`s "Someone like you" are both listed among the favourite songs to play at a funeral in a poll by Co-operative Funeralcare.
The Williams, 38, took fifth position on the chart, while Adele placed at number 22 less than two years after its release.
Frank Sinatra`s "My Way" topped the chart for a seventh consecutive year with 15 percent of the vote, Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli`s "Time to say goodbye" came second and Bette Midler took third with "Wind beneath my wings", reports digitalspy.co.uk.
The study also revealed that a quarter of funeral homes refuse to play John Lennon`s "Imagine" on the grounds of taste, as it includes the line: "Imagine there`s no heaven."
The poll also showed a decline in hymns in favour of pop music at two-thirds of British services, dropping from 41 percent to 30 percent. Only 4 percent of services feature classical music.
