What about Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven"? This was played at the most recent funeral I attended. The audio system suffered several times after it played.

This is an English list, dunno if that matters. I have a relative in the funeral support biz & she cited Stairway to Heaven, too. I'm kinda surprised Bobby Darin's Beyond the Sea isn't on the list but maybe those folks are already dead.
