    My best friends son tragically passed away in an accident last weekend and the family asked me to put together some songs for his funeral. He was a big metal & classic Rock fan. I thought I'd share the list....The family was very grateful and I was pretty proud of this last disc I made up as a tribute to my friend. The 1st 4 songs were songs they played at the funeral at the families request. The remainder was dedicated to him.

    Ironically, I don't fancy myself as a big Country fan but have to say the Brad Paisley duet with Dolly Parton was one of my favorite songs.

    1. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven
    2. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird
    3. Kid Rock - Born Free
    4. Brad Paisley with Dolly Party - When I get Where I'm Going
    5. Queensryche - Silent Lucidity
    6. Kansas - Dust in the Wind
    7. Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven
    8. Great White - The Angel Song
    9. Jars of Clay - All My Tears
    10. Evanescence - My Immortal
    11. Within Temptation - Memories
    12. Alter Bridge - In Loving Memory
    13. Megadeth - A Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free)
    14. Creed - My Sacrifice
    15. Ozzy Osbourne - See You On The Other Side

    There were some others that didn't make the CD
    Pink FLoyd - Wish You were Here
    Metallica - Nothing Else Matters
    Sevendust - Angels Son
    Motley Crue - Home Sweet Home

    Sorry to hear about your friends son passing, that was a nice thing to put together for him. Big Props for that!

    In Loving Memory from Alter Bridge I played alot after my mother passed away. Mark Tremonti wrote that for his mother after she passed, such a great song!

    I will third the Spirit Carries On. Listened to that a lot when my aunt died and it still chokes me up. Also have always wanted Led Zepplin's 'In My Time Of Dying" to be played at my own funeral.

    Sorry if I posted to many videos. Your post had me thinking when I read it. Some other idea's and non-metal songs that come to mind are:

    Sara Evens....I Could Not Ask for More
    Chantel Kreviazuk....In this Life
    Theory of a Deadman.....Heaven (Little by Little)
    Carole King.....So Far Away

    Please excuse the Anime video as it is the only album version of Poe's Fly Away I could find. Beautiful song.
