So this is part funny (to me at least) story and part actual advice question. My fiancé is at a loss for a mother-son dance song- he knows it's important to her to have one but he is not a mushy guy and can't think what to choose.
Today we were talking to FMIL about it and she said the song that comes to mind for her is Carly Simmon's "Love of My Life". Having never heard that song before we listened to it after we left her house on the way home- OMG. I was cracking up and FI was HORRIFIED. I mean no offense if that is your style but we just thought the song was waaaaay over the top, mushy, creepy, and just not a good song in general. Not being parents ourselves we really don't get the sentiment that your child can be the "love of your life" and the song is just suuuuuper corny.
Anyway, it's a non-issue because FMIL decided she doesn't want that song because she would cry too much (she literally started crying mentioning the song in the context of this conversation sooooo...). But now we are back to having no song because FMIL didn't have any other ideas. And FI is kind of scarred to boot because he really thought the song she associates with him is super creepy... but he'll live.
The question is-
1) Does anyone else have fun horror stories about creepy mother-son dance selections (and am I the only one who thinks this particular song is kind of crazy)?
2) What are good mother-son dance songs for a guy who is not comfortable with much mush but a mom whose tastes obviously lean in that direction?
