Let’s Dance

Thursday, July 10th, 2014


The dance between father and daughter or mother and son during a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a special moment for that pair. But there is a high chance that Little Johnny would rather not go to his own Bar Mitzvah rather than dance with his mother to some sappy song about him growing up.

To ease the stress of choosing a song that both you and your child will enjoy dancing to during that special moment, we have created a list of songs that are sure to exert a few tears (of joy, not of frustration).


“Special Moment” songs:

1) Rod Stewart – “Have I Told You Lately”

2) Israel ‘Iz’ Kamakawiwo’ole – “Over The Rainbow”

3) Rascal Flatts – “I Wish”

4) Louis Armstrong – “What A Wonderful World”

5) Taylor Hicks – “Do I Make You Proud”

6) James Taylor – “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)”

7) Debbie Boone – “You Light Up My Life”

8) R. Kelly & Celine Dion – “I’m Your Angel”

9) John Mayer – “Daughters”

10) Temptations – “My Girl”
