Our families liked “A Mother Like Mine” by The Band Perry that we used it in both my brother’s wedding and mine (my husband just didn’t want to look for songs on his own so I kind of chose for him).  It was the least cheesy, sappy one we could find.

“Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd or “Heart of Gold” by Neil Young might be good options.

@bookends: 

why didn’t I think of simple man, that’s actually one of my all time favorite songs. I’m a mother of boys and when I hear this song in the car you would think I’m at karaoke night. It really touches me. And with the rhythm of the song I think this would be a perfect mother/son song.

Bob Dylan’s”Forever Young SLOW version, not Rod Stewart. It make me cry whenever I hear it.

One might say it’s  sappy but it’s appropriate. Louis Armstrong’s 

What a Wonderul World.

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye. It’s upbeat, easy to dance to, and mamas would do anything for their sons!

My husband and his mother danced to “Mom” by Meghan Trainor. It’s upbeat and fun, yet still sweet! I think it was the perfect song. I don’t personally think it’s too sappy or cheesy.
