I know there have been a few posts recently about what song everyone is doing their Father/Daughter dance to. But I just can’t find anything that resonates with me.
My dad is a classic rock guy who loves Bob Dylan, Led Zepplin, Little Feat . . . basically anything 60s/70s. Anyone have a good recommendation for a classic rock song that would be appropriate for a Father/Daughter dance?

I am interested in responses to this too! (sorry I couldn’t help though….)

I’ve sifted through similiar posts and have gotten this list of options together so far:
Stand by Me – John Lennon
In My Father’s Eyes – Eric Clapton
In My Life – Beatles
Father and Daughter – Simon and Garfunkel
You Got It – Roy Orbinson
Tupelo Honey – Van Morrison
Secret of Life – James Taylor
Love and Happiness – Emmylou Harris & Mark Knopfler
@jennybirdy – Thanks for the recommendation! Not sure whether the song is good for dancing!

PS – I know Emmylou Harris isn’t classic rock 🙂 We also dig old school folky country music too!

I’m partial to Clapton myself, so I would say “Father’s Eyes” too – people also know that song but won’t expect it, a very cool surprise. 🙂

A friend let me borrow a “the knot” book that has a chapter on dance songs. They’re all in the category of “First Dance” but maybe some of these might work:
And I love her- Beatles
Best of my love- the Eagles
Ill have to say i love you in a song- Jim Croce
time in a bottle- Jim Croce
You’re my best friend- Queen
Baby i love your way- peter frampton
beautiful girl – inxs
have i told you lately that i love you- van morrison
i will- beatles
I haven’t listened to them, but maybe they could work…

The song that I’m going to use which is from the same era (1979) is Harry Chapin’s “Tangled up Puppet.” It is a beautiful song which I’ve loved for a long time (my mom is a big Chapin fan). It is the song he wrote for his daughter. It’s a pity it never had the same popularity as “Cat’s Cradle” because I think it is so much more beautiful.

What about “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac?

Oh, these are good!
Does anyone have a fun Elvis song for a Father/Daughter song?

What a great question! I’d love to hear some more recommendations… this is definitely our style.

Neil Young–Long May You Run
Rolling Stones–Wild Horses
Tom Petty–Here Comes My Girl or Learning to Fly

Hope you don’t mind this plug- I just published a new song on iTunes & CD Baby: “Father Daughter Song It’s Your World”. (Nov 2014) A rockin’ upbeat song. Consider for wedding or baby girl shower playlists? Enjoy, Jimmy Wendt. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/father-daughter-song-its-your/id938504174?i=938504183

Growing up, my stepdad and I drove up to the ski hill every weekend (in the winter!), listening to Guns N’ Roses. My father/daughter song is “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.
