@Beachy0404:  I like “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton. Its not “peppy” upbeat, but its not a slow ballad. And the lyrics apply to any type of relationship (family, romantic, friends, etc).

It’s hard trying to find one that’s not too sappy/weirdly romantic hahaha!

Sweet Pea – Amos Lee


Jack Johnson – Better Together


Maybe cut the Jack Johnson one before he starts talking about waking up next to someone?? Hahaha.

Queen – You’re My Best Friend



I’ll keep looking!

Now for your hipster options, hahaha.

Zee Avi – Just You and Me


Bahamas – Already Yours


Devendra Banhart – Baby


Cayucas – Cayucos (this song is just pure fun, so I thought I’d include it haha)


Feist – Tout Doucement


EDIT: OMG I TOTALLY forgot that that Devendra Banhart video had butts and stuff in it. Edited! So sorry!

I really think fast or more upbeat songs are awkward to dance to and watch. I had a hard time finding a song that my dad and I wanted to dance to because we’re not the sappy type, so we found a beautiful song in Italian. It was easy to dance to, and really lovely. MIL chose an upbeat song to dance with DH with. She looked all sorts of weird up there with him and essentially asked the DJ to cut the song off 30 seconds in.

@Beachy0404:  You could always go for ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – upbeat, non-sappy, gender versatile and no weird lyrics 🙂

My dad and I danced to “In the Mood” by Glen Miller Orchestra. We ended up having the DJ cut the song short because it was tough for us to swing dance for 3 minutes!

A bit of a different song choice, but it’s a song my dad and I have been dancing to since father/daughter type girl scout dances 🙂

It was fun for us to dance to and our guests loved it. No words too…

@Beachy0404:  We did a father/daughter/mother/son dance to Islands in the Sun by Weezer.  It was fun and upbeat.

FI and his mom and my dad and I are dancing to Teach Your Children by Crosby, stills, Nash and young. Definitely classic rock, and definitely upbeat.
