Don't Worry 'Bout Me (Frank Sinatra - with Lyrics)
It's a song about the end of a relationship, not a life, but it struck me as a good choice for a recent funeral, because the person who'd died was a huge fan of Sinatra (and no mean singer himself), but also because some of the words seemed to fit:
Forget about me, be happy my love,
Let's say that our little show is over,
And so the story ends
Why not call it a day the sensible way....
Bit too stoical for many people, perhaps ("Forget..." really?) but a valid way of looking things, I daresay.
And what a belting performance from the arrangement by the mighty Nelson Riddle.
