Here are some of our top recommendations for Mother-Son dance songs.
What a Wonderful World-Louis Armstrong: What a Wonderful World was written in the late 1960’s at the height of the great civil and political turmoil, in hopes of quelling tensions. It was optimistic and serene at a time when those sentiments were hard to come by. The tune moves at a slow and steady pace. Louis Armstrong’s rich, deep voice is rounded out with an elegant string section and the warm sound of horns.
Wind Beneath My Wings-Bette Midler: With lyrics like “Did you ever know that you’re my hero,” Wind Beneath my Wings is not a song that you can dance to with just anybody, but no one fits the bill more than Mom. It’s hard to think of a better way for a son to express his gratitude than with this song of utmost support and thanks, carried by Bette Midler’s powerhouse voice.
You are the Sunshine of My Life-Stevie Wonder: This uplifting, groovy Stevie Wonder tune is a little less bold than”Wind Beneath my Wings” but the message is the same. It’s great easy-listening music, in case your guests have particularly rigid taste.
Through the Years-Kenny Rogers: This 1981 ballad is a soft-spoken but powerful tune about the kind of devotion and commitment that grows with a relationship over time. Kenny Rogers’ calm voice is backed by smooth piano stylings.
A Song for Mama-Boyz II Men: Boyz II Men forever solidified their place in R&B history with this hit tune, which-as you might have guessed by the name-is a perfect mother-son song.
A Song for My Son by Mikki Viereck-And since we included a great song from a son to his mother, it’s only appropriate that we include a song from a mother to her son. This song was specifically written for a son on his wedding day.
Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion-You’d be hard-pressed to find a more passionate singer than Celine Dion and this goes along with “Wind Beneath My Wings” as one of the most ideal songs for a groom to show the depths of his gratitude.
Unforgettable-Natalie & Nat King Cole: This song is already fitting in that it’s the collaborative effort of a parent and child, but it’s also heartwarming and endearing. It’s very old-fashioned and nostalgic of a different time in American music, but sometimes, that’s exactly what you’ll want for this dance.
Have I Told You Lately by Rod Stewart:This song was originally written by Van Morrison but Rod Stewart recorded a great rendition in 1993 and it’s rarely gone un-played at receptions since. His heartfelt vocal style perfectly punctuates the emotional significance of the moment.
