1 JAMES BLUNT Goodbye My Lover
2 ROBBIE WILLIAMS Angels
3 JENNIFER WARNES AND BILL MEDLEY I’ve Had The Time Of My Life
4 BETTE MIDLER Wind beneath my wings
5 REQUIEM Pie Jesu
6 ELTON JOHN Candle In The Wind
7 U2 With Or Without You
8 ERIC CLAPTON Tears In Heaven
9 THE POLICE Every Breath You Take
10 RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS Unchained Melody
11 DANIEL O’DONNELL Danny Boy
12 SARAH BRIGHTMAN Time To Say Goodbye
13 LOUIS ARMSTRONG What A Wonderful World
14 BOB DYLAN Knocking On Heaven’s Door
15 AEROSMITH I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing
16 ART GARFUNKEL Bright Eyes
17 THE BANGLES Eternal Flame
18 BON JOVI I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead
19 THE KIDS FROM FAME I Want To Live Forever
20 S CLUB 7 Reach For The Stars

Utmost respect is due to those who chose these, of course, but… Do people really want to journey to the next world with The Kids From Fame Ringing in their ears? And why no Living In A Box? Any howling omissions? Let us know…
