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.

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”.
