19 Mother-Son Dance Songs That Haven’t Been Used A Million Times

There’s nothing wrong with the tried-and-true mother-son dance songs out there. Think “Forever Young” by Rod Stewart or “Wind Beneath My Wings” by Bette Midler ― hey, they’re classics for a reason!

But if you want something a little different for your dance with mom, look no further. Below, we’ve compiled 19 tunes you may not have considered before that would work beautifully for a mother-son moment. Then listen to them via the Spotify playlist below.

“Before the mountains call to you / Before you leave this home / I want to teach your heart to trust as I will teach my own / But sometimes I will ask the moon where it shined upon you last / And shake my head and laugh and say it all went by so fast”

“You know your love (your love keeps lifting me) / Keep on lifting (love keeps lifting me) / Higher (lifting me) / Higher and higher (higher)”

“Out on the ocean sailing away / I can hardly wait / To see you come of age”

“She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey / She’s an angel of the first degree / She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey / Just like honey from the bee”

“Then you should always know / Wherever you may go / No matter where you are / I never will be far away”

“I gotta get home there’s a garden to tend / All the seeds from the fruit buried and began their own family trees / Teach them thank you and please / As they spread their own roots then watch the young fruit grow again / This old trail will lead me right back to where it begins”

8. “Sweetest Devotion” by Adele

“You’re my light, you’re my darkness / You’re the right kind of madness / And you’re my hope, you’re my despair / You’re my scope, everything, everywhere”

“When you’re standing at the crossroads / And don’t know which path to choose / Let me come along / ’Cause even if you’re wrong / I’ll stand by you”
