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!

"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
