I had a sister who passed away last year when she was thirteen. I want a good memorial song for her to play while showing her photos on a projector in my wedding.

  • First of all, sorry for your loss. However, I think the question is off-topic here, it is way to opinion based. Having said that, I would play a song that meant much to her.

  • Welcome to the site, sorry to hear about the circumstances. For a small (family) ceremony, I agree that the ideal song would be one that she liked, that means something to you too, would be familiar to those attending the ceremony, and would work as a celebration of her life and fit with the photos you're showing. Quite a tough choice! Sometimes instrumentals can work better than tracks with vocals, as they are less distracting. You might be able to find an instrumental version of a favourite song of hers, maybe?

    While this question is very much off topic on the main site, I have no problem with it on Meta. I'm sorry for your loss, and I hope you find a good song to remember her by.

    However, condolences aside, I can't see how this question makes any sense on the meta site either. It is not about this site or its community at all. Meta seems rather inappropriate as a dump for questions that are just deemed too opinion-based for the main site, that's not what meta is for.

Sorry for your loss. My wife went through this process a few years after we married when her brother died suddenly. She was putting together a slideshow as well. She went with a quasi-religious song even though her brother had probably never heard it and probably wouldn't have liked it, it just seemed fitting.

Having said that, there is this song https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=A7ry4cx6HfY which although from a metal band (that I don't really like), is actually quite emotionally rich, written for their drummer who had passed away. If the music style is a little too harsh, you can find acoustic covers online.

Good luck with your new life with your wife.


Anything that your sister liked is what you should play. That's just what I think, but there's no right or wrong answer here. Honour her with her favourite music.
