The Friendly Funeralista

Archive for the ‘music’ Category


The St. Patrick’s Day celebrations are going full tilt here in Toronto.  Wednesday is the big day.  Let’s face it, no one knows how to throw a funeral like the Irish and of course, the show stopping folksong “Danny Boy” is a must play selection. So here are a few versions of the song that you might enjoy.  I think the first version would be my choice for my funeral.  Oh boy, oh boy!

Option 1

Option 2


The composer Frederic Chopin turns 200 today.  So here is one of his best known tunes, played oddly enough, on guitar.  If you can figure out what the video footage is showing, you’re better than me!   Quick tip:  if you can hold on until 1:22 into the piece, the music becomes decidedly brighter.  Enjoy!
