Australian churches ban sports songs from funerals
[link to www.google.com]

MELBOURNE — Sports anthems and popular songs such as Frank Sinatra's "My Way" have been banned from funerals at more than 200 Australian churches after new orders from Melbourne's archbishop.

The edict follows a study that found the signature song for Australian Rules Football team Collingwood was one of the top requests at Melbourne funerals, along with "My Way" and the Bette Midler version of "The Wind Beneath My Wings".

Melbourne Archbishop Denis Hart said sports songs were not appropriate for a service which emphasises the solemn nature of death and is not designed as a celebration of the deceased's life.

Say I was an Australia, and I was religious, and my favorite song was some kind of sports song, and in my will I asked for it to be played, would the church deny me my dying wish?

The funeral is a sacred liturgy and what the Church is saying is that you can't ''secularize'' the sacred.

More than likely. You have to find a funeral home who would accomodate your wishes, they would have to find a church that son't have a problem with the music.
