Find me on:

It’s the moment when all eyes will be on the groom, when he takes center stage with the first woman he’s ever loved, his mom. The mother-son dance is a moment filled with love, joy, pride, and a hint of the bittersweet as a mother witnesses her son become a husband.

So, how does one even begin to capture the bond between a mother and her son? The perfect song, of course, but -- that’s not always easy. You don’t want awkward lyrics but you want those lyrics to tell your story. Let’s start with what mom likes: is she a country gal? Prefer the classics? Or does she appreciate good ‘ol fashioned rock n’ roll?

If you’re struggling to find that *perfect* song, you’re in luck! We asked our DJ’s here at Mike Staff Productions offices in Michigan and Chicago which songs never go out of style. Check out the list -- do these tracks help help tell your mother-son story?

  1. Simple Man - Shinedown
  2. Forever Young - Rod Stewart
  3. In My Life - The Beatles
  4. Make You Feel My Love - Adele
  5. Unforgettable - Nat King Cole
  6. Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
  7. God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
