What are some good Groom and mother dance songs when the mother has passed?
Im going to have my sister fill in for my mother. I just dont know if there are any special songs that exist for that instance or not.

If you're not opposed to country music, you could play 'You Should Be Here,' by Cole Swindell. It was actually written about his father, but could be used in this situation, too.

Don't play songs that will be sad in any way. Celebrate the fact that your mother had you and your sister, and play something beautiful. If your mother loved to dance certain kinds of dances (waltzes, sambas, etc.), pick a song that would commemorate her specialty in dancing and give it your best dance ever in that style.

I know of no songs written with that scenario in mind. But regardless of that, the most appropriate choice would be a song your mother liked.

Did you and your sister share an interest of certain groups? What did the both of you like when you were teens?
I think it's really nice that you have chosen your sister to fill in as Mother of the Groom.
There's a sort of family unity to this idea, and I like it.
I hope you have a really nice wedding.... Congratulations

There are no special songs that exist for a groom to dance with his sister who is "filling in" for his mother. Pick out a song you like, and go with it.
How about "Lean On Me", by Bill Withers; or "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother', by the Hollies; or You've Got A Friend", by James Taylor; or (just for the fun of it) "Friends In Low Places", by Garth Brooks. All those songs by the original artists can be found on Amazon.

I would pick "Tears In Heaven" by Eric Clapton. "Revelation (Mother Earth)" by Ozzy Osbourne is nice too.

There are zero "my mom is dead so I'm dancing with my sister" songs.
Why not just pick a song you both like? This is your sister and your reception is a party. Why not choose something funny or that you can seriously boogie down to?
No one really wants to watch you get all serious and sappy with your sister, a wedding reception is not a memorial service, and quite frankly, no one really wants to watch you dance with your sister unless you're going to be at least remotely entertaining.
ETA: There are zero good hosts who don't care what their guests prefer. "Retard"? Nice manners. Good luck with your wedding and marriage. You sound like a real winner. By the way, it's only 50% your wedding and the reception isn't your wedding at all. The reception is how you thank your guests for taking time out of their lives to witness your ceremony.
I have a song for you....It's my party and I'll cry if I want to...
