British Woman Requests Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” To Be Played At The End Of Her Funeral

What a way to go out.

A celebration of life has become more and more common these days as people choose to make funerals about celebrating the life their loved ones lived versus sitting in a church pew sobbing about the loss.

While some still take a traditional approach, one social media user took to TikTok recently to show how their late aunt, Margaret Colvin of Stratford, United Kingdom, wanted to be remembered through the music she picked during their celebration of life.

And man, do I want to be friends with this lady because she chose to close out her marriage with Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!”

“My lovely legend of an aunt, we laid her to rest today. This was her final song she wanted played.”

And Colvin apparently had good taste in music: The opening song to the service was Patsy Cline’s “Crazy,” which the program notes was “Margaret’s go-to karaoke song.”

I can already imagine looking at the coffin, hearing the intro to the hit ’90s song, and instantly cracking a smile through the tears. The song was placed at the end of the funeral, following an emotional Celine Dion song, “Because You Loved Me.” What a mood switch to hear the closing of that track, followed by the iconic opening line of Twain’s track.

“Let’s go girlsC’mon”

Talk about an absolute legend move to put this twanger on during your funeral. You know that will get the folks dancing on their way out, sealing the deal of a fun, lasting memory of you.

I mean, hey, she could have picked something worse (or better, depending on your outlook) like “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen.
