That’s awesome that’s your dancing with your mom!

I agree with ejs4y8 above… is there a group you especially remember your mom listening to when you were young?

I’d probably end up with something by the Beatles *lol*… you could even go with a faun dance-related song, like Footloose, or Let’s Dance by David Bowie. Some kind of “get the party started” song!

I’m in the same boat and we really have no idea what songs work for this, so many songs are clearly about a male and a female! I’m very curious to see any responses.

I know you said you don’t want to do a slow song because it’s too wierd but there is a song (country) that makes me cry every time. It’s Somebody’s Hero by Jamie O’Neil. It is slow but instead of dancing the “normal” way you could kind of hug or just do a dedication as well. I thought of singing it to my mom but I’m not sure if I’d be able to make it through without crying! it goes:

She’s never pulled anybody from a burning building                                      She’s never rocked central park to a half a million fans                                   Screaming out her name, she’s never                                                               Hit a shot to win the game.                                                                         She’s never left her footprints on the moon.                                                    She’s never made a solo hot air balloon ride, around the world.                           No she’s just your everyday average girl and..

She’s sombody’s hero                                                                                      A hero to her baby with the skinned up knee                                                      A little kiss is all she needs.                                                                          The keeper of the cheerio’s.                                                                          the voice that brings Snow White to life.                                                      Bedtime stories every night.                                                                          And that smile lets her know, she’s sombody’s hero.

She didn’t get a check every week like the nine to fiver                                     But she’s been a waiter and a cook and a taxi driver                                         For twenty years, there at home, until the day her girl was grown.                   giving all her love to her was her life’s ambition.                                              Now her baby’s moving on and she’ll soon be missing her.                                But not today, those are tears of joy rolling down her face.                            

She’s sombody’s hero.                                                                                     A hero to her daughter in the wedding dress.                                                  She gave her wings to leave the nest.                                                               It hurts to let her baby go, down the aisle she walks right by                                Looks back into her mother’s eyes.                                                                And that smile lets her know, she’s somebody’s hero.

Thirty years have flown right past.                                                                  Her daughter’s staring at all the photographs, of her mother.                            And she wishes she could be like that.                                                             Oh but she already is.                                                                               

She’s sombody’s hero.                                                                                     A hero to her mother in the rocking chair.                                                       She runs a brush through her silver hair.                                                        The envy of the nursing home, she drops by every afternoon.                         Feeds her mama with a spoon.                                                                      And that smile lets her know, her mother’s smile lets her know                       she’s sombody’s hero.

And I had to think about the end..it’s not saying your mom is that “old” now…it’s 30 years from your wedding day!! 🙂
