HELP! Songs to use for a slideshow
« on: December 08, 2008, 09:41:47 AM »
I am racking my brain trying to find songs to put on a slideshow movie that I am giving my mother for Christmas. It is mainly going to be pictures of her grandchildren, but some of me and my sister as well. I have been scouring the internet trying to find songs that would fit but have only a couple. Does anybody have any suggestions that would be good? So far I have Kenny Chesney's, Thank God for Kids, Elton John's, Blessed (or whatever the name of it actually is) Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo Ole'. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My mom is partial to country music by the way. Thanks guys !

   I assume your mother is of the older generation.   Don't have much knowledge when it comes to country music, so I think any advice I would offer would probably help nil.  With that said, what about Elvis's Bridge Over Troubled Waters?  I know that song is not generally associated with happiness, but his version has a beautiful feeling to it.

  If it was me I would have put some Black Sabbath on there.  Something like Iron Man or War Pigs....
I despise the song Love is in the Air, you should too.

Hi Jenny-
I am awful at remembering song lyrics and don't know any country any way but when I googled --

Country songs for mothers and daughters I got

"You Can't Lose Me" - Faith Hill
"I Hope You Dance" - Lee Ann Womack
"In My Daughter's Eyes" and "Blessed" - Martina McBride
"26 Cents" - The Wilkinsons
"Baby Girl" - Sugarland
"I'll Be" - Reba McEntire
"Somebody's Hero" - Jamie O'Neal

I also saw Harper Valley PTA by Dolly Parton?

I've always liked "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole or the remake by his daughter Natalie Cole.
