Sunrise, Sunset - Steve Kirwan
Did You Know

Want to choose music for your wedding that shows off your unique style and flair? Most DJs have an extensive knowledge of jazz, golden oldies, show tunes and other musical categories. They can help you put together a customized program with selections you'd never have thought of yourself.

No list of mother-son wedding songs would be complete without this perennial favorite from the Broadway musical and 1971 film adaptation "Fiddler on the Roof." It's about the passage of time, changes and -- well, life. You don't have to be into show tunes to recognize the appropriateness of choosing this song for one of the parent dances. If you think it's a little too overused, look at it this way: Weddings celebrate tradition, and there's nothing more traditional when folks get married than taking a moment to pause and reflect on the meaning of life. There won't be a dry eye in the house.
