Funeral music is said to soothe the soul. Incorporating funeral songs into a service is a wonderful way to start the healing process. While the main purpose of the funeral songs is to serve as a backdrop and to set the tone of the service it can also be incorporated into a video tribute. These DVD tribute videos are an exceptional as a way to not only honor a loved one and share their life’s story with family and friends, but also can be a beautiful, lasting keepsake.
One misconception about funeral music is that it has to be sad. This is simply untrue. Just because it’s a funeral doesn’t mean that the songs played during a service or in a video tribute have to be sad. In fact, it’s important when selecting the funeral music to not lose sight of the fact that, you are indeed celebrating someone’s life. It’s totally appropriate to laugh and remember, and listen to upbeat music, just as it would be to cry and share special moments. There isn’t a right or wrong choice when it comes to funeral songs. The selection should simply have meaning to the family and a connection to the deceased.
Creating a memorial video using funeral songs to honor and remember a loved one used to be an arduous process that the family took on themselves. Finding the right photographs, scanning them into a computer and selecting the music took hours. Adding special effects were an afterthought that many do-it-yourself-ers didn’t have the time or the expertise to muster. Sometimes the results showed their effort, but not a great tribute video.
