Songs for Remembrance Day

"In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below."

- John McCrae

As we approach Remembrance Day in the coming week, we remember those who fought so bravely for our country. For some, a grandparent, a relative, a brother or sister, a friend.

Remembrance Day is a day that can bring about reflection or difficult memories and feelings for others. Music is a unifying medium that has allowed for cathartic reflections and discussions to occur during sessions. Some of these discussions have led to tears and processing of loss. Others have led to cheerful memories of loved ones.

Here are some songs that I often share with my clients, as we reflect and remember together.

  • Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree

  • Keep the Home Fires Burning

  • It’s a Long Way to Tipperary

  • Lili Marlene

  • Pack Up Your Troubles

  • The Band Played On

  • The White Cliffs of Dover

  • We’ll Meet Again
