I know there are tons of posts about father/daughter dances. I tried going through them but started to become overwhelmed by them all. Heres a little background. I was going to dance to one of my dads favourite songs until I listed to the lyrics and realized it was a little inappropriate (Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd). We aren’t the sappy type so I don’t want some sappy song. I have asked him for suggestion but has basically given me the job to pick the song. I don’t think its because he doesn’t care, I think he just wants me to be happy. I’ve looked up popular songs but I don’t see anything that catches my eye. I also don’t want to go with something thats over used as much. I don’t want something too too old (in the sense of I was trying to find something we both might enjoy). Growing up we use to listen to country on the radio all the time when we took trips together but I can’t seem to find a good song from the time frame. If anyone out there might have any good country songs from the 1990’s that might be a good fit for a father/daughter dance that would be awesome! <br />Thanks so much!!

The song I chose for my dad and I is “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Not sure exactly when that came out though.

My first daughter to marry also used “I Loved her First.” I listened to all the band’s songs, in that group, to narrow it down for her. I sobbed through the whole song. I played it for her and she did the same thing, so it was a winner. I tried to listen to it every day, to build up my endurance so I wouldn’t cry at the wedding. My son on law took a cellphone video, of the dance, so I have it on my phone. It gets me every time, especially since my husband had to start using a cane, a few months later. My second daughter is using Martina McBride’s “In my Daughter’s Eyes.” We heard her band do it at a preview, and we each went through 2 tissues. Since her father is more disabled now (incurable muscular disease), the first two verses are very appropriate:
In my daughter’s eyes I am a hero. I am strong and wise, and I know no fear. But the truth is plain to see, She was sent to rescue me. I see who I wanna be, In my daughter’s eyes. In my daughter’s eyes, everyone is equal. Darkness turns to light, and the world is at peace. This miracle God gave to me, gives me strength when I am weak. I find reason to believe, In my daughter’s eyes. I’m crying again. Good luck!
