If you’re anything like me, you know the right music can make or break the mood of an event. One of my favorite things to do is create playlists and be the DJ at any time needed. A baby shower is such a special time to celebrate both the mother and soon-to-be newborn! There are so many sweet tunes to choose from, but I have selected twenty-five of my favorites for the ultimate baby shower playlist.
Best Baby Shower Playlist Songs
Daughters – John Mayer
This is probably the first song that comes to my mind regarding babies, especially little girls! John Mayer is one of my favorite musicians, and I think this is such a precious tribute to daughters everywhere.
Boy – Lee Brice
There are quite a few country songs about having children. I only picked my absolute favorites for this list, but it was definitely hard. “Boy” is a father addressing his new son about all the lessons he learned as a boy himself.
It Won’t Be Like This For Long – Darius Rucker
If you’ve been through the newborn stage, you can fully relate to this song! Darius Rucker sings about not letting moments pass you by even when they seem difficult. I also played this song at the end of my pregnancy when I was past my due date and desperately ready to give birth. It helped remind me to cherish every last moment since life was about to change forever!
You Are The Best Thing – Ray LaMontagne
This song was my first dance song with my husband at our wedding. I have the lyrics on the wall in our bathroom! It’s such a beautiful song. I think it would be perfect for celebrating the joyous occasion of bringing a baby into the world!
All American Girl – Carrie Underwood
I love this precious song about a father who finds out he is having a girl! It talks about how he grows to love being a girl dad and how special it is.
Better Together – Jack Johnson
I adore this song from Jack Johnson about another person bringing out the best in you! A baby certainly does bring out great things in you as you become a mother.
Anything Like Me – Brad Paisley
Brad Paisley’s song is about a father recounting his own years growing up and readying himself for what may be to come in the future. There is a saying: “You pay for your raising,” that I think this song perfectly encompasses!
Your Song – Elton John
This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I have the lyrics to this song in my son’s nursery. Even before I was ever pregnant, I knew this song would somehow be a part of my future child’s room! It perfectly describes how beautiful life becomes when your baby joins your family.
I Saw God Today – George Straight
This song about the miracle of birth is a tear-jerker. I always get a little misty-eyed listening to George Strait give an account of a father who just had his first child! A baby truly is a miracle, and this sweet song paints a beautiful picture of it.
ily (I love you baby) – by Surf Mesa ft. Emilee
This is a newer song I discovered, and I think it’s so cute. It makes me think of the newborn stage when they sleep all the time and are just so peaceful!
You’re Gonna Miss This – Trace Adkins
If you can get through this song without shedding a tear, I really commend you. Every time motherhood is hard, I hear the lyrics from this song in my head and try to remember at some point, I will miss every single stage. The days are long, but the years are short, which is perfectly demonstrated throughout this song!
American Girl – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
A classic rock tune about an all-American girl! I love the chorus and beat. It’s definitely one to sing along to!
My Wish – Rascal Flatts
This song was on my senior ad in the yearbook in high school. I absolutely think these wishes are what all parents have for their children!
You & Me – Dave Matthews Band
I love this song about all of the things you can do together! It’s great to imagine that with your future baby.
Make You Feel My Love – Adele
There are many versions of this same song, but I love Adele’s because she is a mother herself. It’s just a beautiful tune about how much you would go through to show those you love that you care about them.
Never Grow Up – Taylor Swift
Don’t we all wish they would always stay little? I love this Taylor Swift song about trying to hold on to childhood and not rush growing up!
Sweet Pea – Amos Lee
A cute tune about that special little person in your life! Such a sweet song.
Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
This was the song I danced to with my father at my wedding! I love this upbeat tune.
Little Bitty Pretty One – Thurston Harris, The Sharps
I love classic songs like this one! This whole era in music was so great. I think it is perfect for a baby shower!
My Little Girl – Tim McGraw
A sweet song about a father’s love for his baby girl. I love that Tim McGraw is really a girl dad in real life! Totally qualified to sing about this.
Baby Love – The Supremes
Love, at first sight, is sure to happen the moment you meet your new baby! This happy tune is a great addition to your baby shower playlist.
Sweet Child O’ Mine – Guns N’ Roses
This is more of a play on words since it says child in the lyrics, but it’s always a crowd-pleaser! You have to have some upbeat songs to balance out the emotional ones. You don’t want to cry the entire time!
Love Without End, Amen – George Strait
George Strait is on here twice, but he has so many that would be great for a baby shower playlist! I actually had to narrow it down and exclude a few I like. I love that he talks about loving your baby forever, whether they are a baby or an adult!
Father and Daughter – Paul Simon
A sweet song about a father’s love for his daughter! Such a great classic song.
My Girl – The Temptations
I love this darling song! Such an addictive chorus that will really get the party going.
