"When You and I Were Young, Maggie"--my grandad, who died over 30 yrs ago, and then I played it for a best friend's father's funeral last year. His wife's name is Maggie.
"Amazing Grace"--yea, I know the stoopid tune of all time, but it was sung at the funeral of our Super Friend, Lt. Mark, who was killed in the line of duty here in Small Town USA. We booked it out of the funeral and headed for Highland Games. Got there in time to hear the Massed Pipe Bands play it as the closing tune at the Tattoo. We were not the only ones standing proud, with tears running. That was 10 yrs ago, and we still can't listen to it without tears.
"Morning Has Broken"--my wedding
CCR's "Proud Mary", for a lot of reasons....
