Choosing Song For Grandma

Postby Vinson » Sun Mar 12, 2017 6:23 pm

Hey, my grandmother's 80th birthday celebration is coming up and my cousin(who is female) and I are going to dedicate a song to her. We are going to perform in a hall. It is going to be an acoustic song, with me on the guitar and her singing. We're finding it hard to choose a song that would have lyrics applicable to my grandmother, who is sort of the head of my huge family and has taken great care of all her children and grandchildren over the years. I realize their aren't any songs directly about grandmothers, but any song talking about someone special, who we love, who we respect, look up to, appreciate would do.

The only suggestion I've got so far is In My Life by the Beatles, which the chorus works.

What I'm asking for is any nice acoustic song(from any time) that could be sang to a gradmother? We don't want it too old though, like nothing from 50's for instance. Just because its my grandmother, the song doesnt have to sound like a real oldie.

Both me and my cousin are 20 years old by the way.

Thanks a lot.

Choosing Song For Grandma

Ravi,

First of all, I just wanted to say I think it is wonderful that you and your family are doing this!  What a wonderful tribute to her love and dedication to your family!

Here are a few songs that make me think of MY Grandma :)

Of course there is the obvious choice :Wind Beneath My Wings-Bette Midler And some others:

1) Time-Paul Overstreet(look these lyrics up...time well spent)

2) Blessed-Martina McBride

3) Teach Your Children-Crosby, Stills, and Nash

4) I'll Be-Reba McEntire

5) Long Line of Love-Paul Overstreet(an hommage to the family in general)

6) Song for Momma(change to Grandma) Boyz II Men

7) Hero-Mariah Carey

8) Through the Years-Kenny Rogers

9)and finally..even though I'm Not a Celine Dione FAN...Because You Loved Me"

For all those times you stood by me

For all the truth that you made me see

For all the joy you brought to my life

For all the wrong that you made right

For every dream you made come true

For all the love I found in you

I'll be forever thankful You're the one who held me up

Never let me fall

You're the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith 'coz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly

You touched my hand I could touch the sky

I lost my faith, you gave it back to me

You said no star was out of reach

You stood by me and I stood tall

I had your love I had it all

I'm grateful for each day you gave me

Maybe I don't know that much

But I know this much is true

I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith 'coz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

You were always there for me

The tender wind that carried me

A light in the dark shining your love into my life

You've been my inspiration

Through the lies you were the truth

My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn't speak

You were my eyes when I couldn't see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach

You gave me faith 'coz you believed

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me

I'm everything I am

Because you loved me HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR GRANDMA!!!!
