I just googled "father dance wedding songs" and this was the first link I clicked on:

http://www.nycityweddings.com/planning/wedding_songs/?Display=FatherDance&P=1

It has a lot of different songs, many of which aren’t country and daddy’s little girl-ish. They may or may not be sappy–depending on you definition of sappy–but it’s worth a look. 

But seeing as you may have already seen this list and not cared for it, since what I did, anyone could do, haha, Do you both have a favorite song/singer? You could go non-traditional and just pick a song that reminds you of your time together. Or just something that you both would love to dance to together. A newer song that I was thinking about for our dance was "Your Joy" by Chrisette Michele (it’s a little sappy, but I like it). Good luck!

How about a little Motown with "My Girl"?

Or "Isn’t She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder.  It’s about his daughter, and there are a bunch of covers out there so you can find a style you like.

Paul Simon has a good one.  I think it was on the soundtrack to a kids’ movie.  Not Rugrats.  The other one.  Anyway, my sister used that one.  (My other sister used a country song.)  I haven’t decided yet.

We are dancing to Secret of Life by James Taylor … it’s not totally "father-daughter" but the lyrics are awesome.

You could use anything that you want for a Daddy Daughter Dance song. I would have used "Desperado" by the Eagles for mine (Dad passed away last May). I’m still playing the song but nobody will be dancing to it. 🙁

Great ideas! my mom said there is this OLD song called "daddys little girl" that I HAVE to have. Whatever, we’ll see. I don’t want some hokey dokey song about me being his little baby or something. I’m just not into that. I told my dad i’m ok with him p;icking led Zeppelin and so he’s trying to figure out if we’re going to go rock n roll or traditional, lol. My dad’s really into his rock and roll. Long hair, tattoos, plays guitars, etc. Kinda looks like a biker =]
