20 Songs for the Mother Groom Dance

Looking for a mother son dance song? Here are 20 suggestions that will suit many tastes of your mom. There are more suggestions out on the internet, but a lot of them are either super cheesy or inappropriate.

Note: it can feel a little long to be dancing with just you and your mom on the dance floor for over 4min. For my customers, I try to find a spot somewhere between the 2:45 – 4min mark where I can nicely fade out the song. You may want to ask your DJ to do the same.

1. The Beatles – Across the Universe (naked version) – If your mom is a Beatles fan, she’ll love this striped down version of Across the Universe.
2. The Byrds – Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season) – Not at all cheesy and not too slow.
3. Bob Dylan – Forever Young
4. The Band – Forever Young – A different version
5. James Taylor – How Sweet It Is
