Vote in the second My Last Song poll!August 18th, 2010 by Paul Hensby
Well, I have to say how pleased I am with the publicity gained by the press release I wrote which gave the results and assessment of the first My Last Song poll.
It was about funeral music choices. The fact that the release included some pop song titles meant the Mirror covered it.
And the Telegraph stressed the demise of hymns, which is the more interesting point. The Telegraph’s website reprinted the press release virtually verbatim, for which I’m grateful.
The second poll, which went up on the site yesterday, is on funeral choices: burial, cremation, eco-friendly options, donating the body to medical research or leaving it up to your family.
It’s too early to spot any trends, though after a dozen or so votes cremation is ahead followed, I’m annoyed to relate, by leaving it to the family to decide.
My hope is that donating the body to medical research comes first, followed by the eco-friendly options as these will get journalists more interested than cremation and burial which isn’t news.
But, should you feel like going on to the home page of My Last Song and clicking on the Poll in the right hand column, don’t let me influence your vote, or that of the other people you will, I hope, pass this news on to. (Don’t end sentence with a preposition – ed).
