Most Popular Funeral Songs: Adele's 'Someone Like You' Makes List In The United Kingdom

Forget about rolling in the deep. Adele's music may have some people rolling in their graves.

The pops singer's hit ballad "Someone Like You" made the list of this year's top 30 most commonly requested funeral songs in the United Kingdom, NME.com reports, coming in at number 22. The finding came out of a survey of 30,000 funerals conducted The Co-operative Funeralcare, the UK's largest funeral director, over the past 12 months.

“Song lyrics now provide the poignant words to remember a loved one’s life," notes Lorinda Robinson, Co-operative marketing head.

In "Someone Like You," those lyrics include "Never mind, I'll find someone like you."

While the tune -- which is well-known for making everyone, even pets, cry -- is sure to get the tears flowing at a funeral, the underlying message may be somewhat offensive to the average cadaver. Adele has stated the song is about her reaction to finding out that her ex-boyfriend is married. In the song's chorus, she declares she will just move on with a similar person.

Another popular request is "The Muppet Show Theme Song."
