We are trying to figure out the Mother/Son Dance:
Here is what we are trying to avoid:
Josh Groban (My Fiance is a musician and hates Josh…mainly because of how the music biz targets him to middle aged women)
Somewhere over the Rainbow – overdone – all versions are overdone even though I like the Eva Cassidy version
Mama – We love Boys 2 Men but Fiance thinks this one is to obvious
Any other cheezy overdone songs
Sorry if you did any of those songs. My Fiance is a music snob, and I guess now I am becoming one too.
Any other fun ideas? My Fiance and I are doing You are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontane and Dad and I are doing Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison.

This song might be overdone, but I think we are going with In My Life by the Beatles.

yeah….I like In My LIfe but I associate it with driving across Kansas as a kid because I got Rubber Soul as a Christmas gift 2 days before we moved across the country so my mom and I played it the whole time.

My husband and his mom danced to What a Wonderful World (I thought it was a boring choice).
I wanted them to dance to The One Who Knows by Dar Williams.
I’m not super wild about the music, but the lyrics are just wonderful…
Another sweet one (I danced to this with my mom) is Child of Mine by Carole King:
PS- I love your first dance choice! I hadn’t heard it before, it’s great!!

The One Who Knows by Dar Williams is very sweet –
Godspeed by the Dixie Chicks

@jocelyn: That’s what my Fiance is dancing with his mom to!
Also, you could do “Simple Man.”
