In My Life (Beatles)
Sweet Baby James (James Taylor) - well, anything by Taylor. Fire and Rain comes to mind as well.
In A Sentimental Mood (Coltrane)- only the slower first half

The mother and son dance of my God-Daughter's wedding started out slow then switched to a real quick fast dance with twirls and some of that stuff they do on Dancing With The God-Daughter's husband and mom planned it real well!

Does Maurice do anything on the fast side?

There's a wonderful song by Carly Simon that she wrote for her son that might be nice. I think it's called something like "Love of my life." Not in the romantic way obviously, but it's so sweet from a mother to a son.

Congratulations on your sons upcoming marriage! Hope you have a great time at the wedding.

"First of May" but my son doesn't like it.

I'm kinda partial to "Because you Loved Me" by Johnny Mathis. They're having a Celine free event.

"A Song for Mama" by Boyz II Men

It is such a beautiful song, and perfect for a mother/son wedding dance. You can look it up on youtube to hear it, but I personally really like it... Let me know what you think!!!

Great minds! All of those are on the list ... thanks folks!

Tee hee!

My brother and my mum danced to "It's a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong at his wedding last summer.

It's Your Song by Garth Brooks gets me every time.
I can't post links yet, but you can watch the video on *********** if you're interested. (I looked for it on YouTube and it was all people doing covers which just isn't the same as Garth singing it!)

Okay, even the site name is being blocked. I can PM you the link if you'd like it.

My son and I danced to the song MY WISH. It was perfect!

Boyz to Men has a song called Mama's Song. I was at a wedding recently where that was used

This was our song at our Mother-Son/Father-Daughter dance (we combined ours into one dance)

Still brings tears to my was between this song and MY WISH and I choose this and use My Wish as his ringtone, lol. Of course they decided to run off to Hawaii and marry on the beach so never had that mother/son dance, lol.
