Are you putting together a family slide show? If so, you’re going to want some great family slideshow songs to accompany your photos. These are just a few suggestions, but there are tons of tracks to choose from.  It all depends on the mood you want to set – whether your slideshow is funny, heartfelt, or just plain beautiful.

When it comes to slideshow song ideas, there are plenty of choices, particularly where family slideshows are concerned. Some of the family slideshow songs on this list are classics, including the ever-present “We Are Family” by Sister Sledge. Fun fact: “We Are Family” was co-composed by Nile Rodgers. If you’re putting together the perfect family slideshow playlist, consider your audience. Do your family members love light, hilarious songs? Consider Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” as an option. It’s one of many cute family slideshow songs. If you’re going for the classics, consider The Beatles. “In My Life” is unforgettable, and you can’t go wrong with “All You Need is Love.”

From “Family Affair” by Sly and the Family Stone to “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong, these are some of the best tunes to include when putting together a slideshow of your family. Be sure to vote up your favorites!
