Last week’s blogpost looked at some of the best father/daughter wedding dance songs. This week, let’s consider some of the best mother/son wedding dance songs.
A good place to start is Carole King’s “Child of Mine” from her iconic 1970s Tapestry album:
The lyrics are tender because they come from a mother’s perspective:
Child of mine
Child of mine
Oh, yes sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine.
Josh Groban had a big hit with another beautiful song that works well for a mother/son wedding dance song: “You Raise Me Up”:
The lyrics are truly touching, coming from a son’s perspective who appreciates his mother and finds strength from her loving presence:
When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be
If you like a country feel to your songs, check out Lee Ann Womack’s big cross over hit, “I Hope You Dance”:
American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks had a hit with a song sung from the son’s perspective to his mom, “Do I Make Your Proud?”:
The refrain poses this question:
“This is what we dream about
But the only question with me now
Is do I make you proud?
Stronger than I’ve ever been now
Never been afraid of standing out
Do I make you proud?”
The answer is found in a mother’s tears as she dances with her newly married son.
