    Hmmm, that’s definitely tricky!  I’m not too farmiliar with the songs above just based on title and artist.  I think it’s a matter of what makes them both more comfortable — to pick a song that “speaks” to their situation, or one that’s more traditional.

    I’m sorry it’s such a sticky situation between your Fiance and his mother.  i absolutely love james morrison, and i think it would totally work. “i’m still here and it hasn’t been easy” sort of seems like it describes their relationship… let us know what you end up choosing!

    Maybe they could talk to each other and decide together.

    I voted Lynard Skynard. I think it conveys a mother/son relationship without being too emotional.  Remember your wedding day is about the happiness and love of your and your FH, so I don’t think it is necessary have a super emotional, on the relationship of your FH and his mother.  But I also don’t think they necessarily need to put on happy faces and go with a traditional song either.  The point of your wedding day is to celebrate your love for each other and focus on that.  All the rest is the smaller details that come with that.  I think Lynard Skynard can balance not pretending their relationship is something that is not, but also not being too depressing and emotional.
