Meet my dad.I have always loved and really looked up to my dad.I appreciate his smarts and level headedness. He is a big part of the reason why I went into engineering. Here I am, following in his footsteps after getting my iron ring for becoming an engineer.That being said, my dad also knows how to be a bit goofy from time to time.I really wanted to find a song for our father-daughter that was perfect for the kind of relationship that we have. It isn’t a shmoopy one, so when I googled “father-daughter dance songs” none of the songs seemed right. I went through all the Top 100 songs from the 1980s and 1990s trying to find a song that we both loved. The only thing I found was a bunch of songs that I had completely forgotten about and band names that didn’t ring a bell anymore (one hit wonder anyone?). I wracked my brain thinking of artists I know my dad liked.
Men At Work? Catchy tunes, but no. Dire Straits? The songs weren’t quite right for a father-daughter dance. The Police? Er, songs not appropriate.
Phil Collins? None of his tunes that I remembered listening to as a kid were quite right… But there was one song. You’ll Be In My Heart from the Tarzan soundtrack.
What song did you and your dad pick for your father-daughter dance?
Great choice for the father-daughter dance!!
We did a father-daughter (and I have 2 dads) and mother-son dance together so we went with What a Wonderful World as that seemed to work well with all 3 situations!
That's a great song, I like that choice!! We danced to Paul Simon "Fathers and Daughters"
What a great song. Dads are the best. Our song was Tim McGraw's "My little girl"...it starts "Better hold on easy as I let you go"....I cry every time I think about it. My dance with my dad was one of the best moments of our wedding, actually of my entire life. Glad you find a song that hit you just right!!!
Great song choice!
