Recommended Mother-Son Dance Songs

I've found that the Mother-Son Dance song is one of the hardest special songs to select. Here are 20 candidates for a Mother-Son Dance with links to the accompanying videos!

"93 Million Miles" - Jason Mraz. A reference to a mother's message to her son and invitation to come home equals an interesting modern candidate for a modern Mother-Son dance.

"I Wish You Love" - Luke Higgins. Beautiful song - used by Patrick and his mother Patricia on 5/25/14 in Princeton NJ. Features endearing lyrics about having to let somebody go - but wishing them safety, warmth and love. I recommend the slow version of this song (as featured in this YouTube video).

"Letter to my Mother" - Edwin McCain. Beautiful melody! This is a unique song that shows love for both the man's natural mother (who gave him up for adoption) and for the mother who raised him. Listen carefully to the lyrics to make sure that it is appropriate for your Mother-Son dance.

"A Mother's Song"- T. Carter Music. A perfect new mother/son wedding dance song about growing up, the meaning of true love and making Mom proud. For additional special wedding songs from this independent artist, visit

    When my son was married three yrs ago this September this was our mother son dance song... He cried and held onto me like the lil boy he use to be there wasn't a dry eye in the building. I absolutely love this song and the best part is I have two more sons that will marry one day and I am sure we will use it then too.

"Happy Everafter In Your Eyes" by Ben Harper. Used by Loren & Troy, 3/29/13. Could also be used for Father-Daughter Dance or First Dance for Bride and Groom. This song is about the divine feeling of love.

"The Answer Lies Within" by Dream Theater. Used by Marge & Nick, 10/27/12. Words of advice from a mother to a son.

Bette Midler - Baby Mine (HQ Music Video). Reflects the sentiments of a mother loving and protecting her son. Used by 9-21-12 by groom Ken.

"The Circle Game" by Joni Mitchell. A beautiful folk song about time, the seasons, and growing up.

"On This Day" (Original Song) sung by Christian Barnes. This unique song combines perspective from Mother to Son, and Son to Mother. It concludes with these lyrics "On this wedding day, I just want to stop and thank you, I just want to say, I love... you... Mom." Emotionally powerful! This song is only available by download from the artist's website ($5.99) but is well worth the price!

    This is going to be the song I dance to with my son at his wedding. It is so beautiful and tells the story of a boy growing up to be a man who I am so proud of. Love, love this song. I am sure I will be crying at the wedding. Cry when I listen to the song now.
