So my dad is pretty traditional I’m finding out through this wedding process, and I’m his only child. I wanted something special for our daddy/daughter dance, as I’m his only, but the songs I love, he’s not such a fan of. I LOVE “Walk with you” by Edwin McCain and “I loved her first” by Heartland. Both of which are country songs. Then I thought of having a random fun dance of his choice in the middle, just because it’d be fun. But he didn’t like that idea either. He’s a classic rock guy, pretty easy going. But he said that he doesn’t want rock, he doesn’t want something silly, he doesn’t want country… I just don’t know what’s left.
Any traditional sweet father/daughter songs that you bees can think of?

My dad is a classic rock guy too and he hates country. So we decided to dance to “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. My dad is majorly in love with Stevie Nicks so that was a bonus. Also, when I was reading about the song I discovered that she wrote it for her dad which made it seem so perfect.

Daughters by John Mayer? Daughters by Loudon Wainwright? Isn’t she lovely by Stevie Wonder (which was written when his daughter was born)? Somewhere over the Rainbow? What a wonderful world by Louis Armstrong? Anything by the Beatles, like all you need is love?

I just found Father and Daughter by Paul Simon on Brides.com. It’s so perfect for my dad and I, and it’s got a more “rock” feel, so maybe it will work for your dad too 🙂

Just a note, if you actually read the lyrics to the John Mayer song, it’s not really father/daughter appropriate as it basically talks about a father who walked out on his daughter . . .
