Let Them Be Little - Lonestar
You're Gonna Miss This - Trace Adkins

These both make me cry, but they are beautiful in kid picture slide shows.

"My Wish" by Rascal Flatts. My daughter's t-ball team made a slide show with this song and it was perfect.

Another thought...One year DS's preschool used a bunch of the songs that they sing with the kids. DS loves watching that slideshow. I think the songs bring back as many memories as the pictures.

My daughter's kindergarten used: Upside Down by Jack Johnson (otherwise known as the Curious George song) and My Own Two Hands by Ben Harper

Little Wonders - by the guy from Matchbox 20 (I think). Yes, Steve Thomas!!!

It was from that movie with the kid and the robots?? Wow, I'm really drawing a blank here. LOL

Rob Thomas, and that is one of my favorite songs! The movie is Meet the Robinsons.

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong that PP's have mentioned is a very popular song for preschools. I also like the Jack Johnson ideas!

My son has one that has "You've got a friend in me" from Toy Story and "Somewhere over the rainbow". Makes me cry every time I watch it!!:confused3

My dd got a dvd of a play she was in and for a picture montage in the beginning, they used 'I am your Child' by Barry Manilow. Can't get through it with a dry eye!

I have made many DVDs using photos and music for various occasions. I find that the best music is instrumental only - no vocal. For kids pics I like any Disney music.
