Get Your Groove on with the Perfect Mother-Son Dance Songs

Photo Credit: Alamo Photographic

The mother and son dance is an expression in itself.  Your mother has had that maternal bond with you since your birth.  She has cared for you and made sure you were safe, fed and clothed.  Now she is passing that torch onto your wife. The song you choose can perfectly express the bond between you and your mother, can tell the story of your relationship, and is your opportunity to honor and thank her for all she has done for you.

Sit down with mama and go over some of these songs and see if any spark her interest:

Classics:

  • A Song for Mama –Boys II Men
  • Blessed –Elton John
  • Close to You –The Carpenters
  • In My Life –The Beatles
  • What a Wonderful World –Louis Armstrong
  • You are the Sunshine of My Life –Stevie Wonder
  • Simple Man –Lyrnyrd Skynyrd
  • First Lady in My Life-Paul Todd
  • Stand by Me –Ben E. King
  • First Time I Saw Your Face –Roberta Flack
  • Sunrise, Sunset –Steve Kirwan

Country:

  • I Hope You Dance –LeAnn Womack
  • Heart to Heart –Toby Keith
  • The Best Day –Taylor Swift
  • Angels –Randy Travis
  • It’s Your Song –Garth Brooks
  • I’ll Be –Reba McEntire

Modern classics:

  • Hero –Mariah Carey
  • Wind Beneath My Wings –Gary Morris
  • Greatest Love of All –Whitney Houston

Not so mainstream:

  • Dear Mama –Tupac

So many of the mother-son and father-daughter songs are interchangeable; don’t feel like you can’t do The Beatles’ In My Life with your dad just because it’s on this list. Listen to the lyrics and what speaks to you and your mother or father. And remember that you can always do a google search to help in this quest…last time we checked there was about 2 million hits about this topic, so you are sure to find something you can dance to!
