My Way is most popular funeral song

AC/DC, Meat Loaf and Queen also in poll

Frank Sinatra's hit My Way is the most popular song to be played at funerals, according to a poll released today.

But stranger choices such as Highway to Hell by AC/DC, Queen's Another One Bites The Dust and Bat Out Of Hell by Meat Loaf were also in the list, compiled by Co-operative Funeralcare.

Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah predictably rose in popularity after X Factor winner Alexandra Burke scored last year's Christmas number one with a cover version of it.

TV themes from Top Gear and Benny Hill were included as well as, bizarrely, the music from the shipping forecast on Radio Four.

Apparently, clergymen reject one in ten requests for music because of 'inappropriateness'.
