May I pick your brains...
I need help finding a mother-son song for dancing at my eldest son's wedding.

My youngest son and I danced to "Stand By Me" ...Seal's version. It is hard to find a song with meaning that isn't saccharine and has a moderately fast beat and isn't filled with sensual terminology.

Billy Joel's "Just The Way You Are" works well, but a close friend of his just used this song for the mother-son dance at his wedding.

In this new tradition, my family prefers to avoid the "traditional" style if we can, so I am open to all reasonable suggestions. Dire Straits, AC/DC...Stones? Celtic? "The Mountains of Mourne" is a beautiful melody, but a rather moody song. Cajun?

Still...we have to get it by his fiancee... Or not...

I appreciate any help.

Congrats on the upcoming wedding! Smile

Bette Midler's You are the Wind Beneath My Wings was at one of my friend's weddings. I thought that was kind of nice.

When I get married mine's going to be Jennifer Juniper by Donovan, a song my dad always said reminded him of me. The reason I mention this--Are there any songs when your son was younger, that reminded you of him or that you associate with him?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
