Check out songs by James Taylor or maybe something by Carly Simon? My lullaby as a kid was Sweet Baby James. Kenny Loggins has some sweet songs about his kids too. I know that your fiance hasn’t known your mom since he was a baby, but I’m trying to brainstorm songs that have a theme of parent/child, instead of romance. I see a lot of people dance to songs with their parents that they think are about one thing but are really about romance or sex or something, it’s super awkward. 

 

There’s a john mayer song that mentions his parents but I think it’s the one that’s like “stop this train, I want to get off and go home again” which would be very inappropriate for a wedding probably haha. That’s the one part of becoming an adult that’s FUN.  

 

I’ll keep thinking and look back on old set lists. A LOT of people where I live dance to Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd for the mother/son. It does have great lyrics. But it’s like 10 minutes long so be sure to pick out the part he likes the best and just play a minute or two. Do a verse or two and a chorus.

What about You’ve Got A Friend by Randy Newman? 

 

ETA I love the James Taylor You’ve Got a Friend as well and I think that’s a fantastic suggestion. 🙂

My Fiance is considering The Rainbow Connection for the mother/son dance. I also feel like Moon River could work for a parent dance, maybe?
