I like “My Girl” best. My dad and I danced to “Isnt she Lovely”. It is overdone, but I always really liked the song anyway.

Did you ask your dad for his input? Not that you have to, but it made it easier for me. I think you should go with what is most sentimental to you, screw it if anyone doesn’t get it! 

Also really love My Girl! I wanted to go with The Rolling Stones version ๐Ÿ™‚

Dance to what you like,  Im not a particularly sentimental person and gave my dad some options,  he came back with butterfly kisses.  I maybe rolled my eyes a little because it’s definitely not a ‘me’ song,  and he danced to it with 2 of my other sisters.

  Humumph, he is now considering his options and says we don’t have to be in a hurry to pick something.  I really like the ukulele version of somewhere over the rainbow.

I wouldn’t use Can You Feel The Love Tonight simply based on the lyrics.

I like My Girl!

One option is “When you need me” by Bruce Springsteen.

I never even heard the song till my Dad picked it (I didn’t know till we did our dance!) but it was perfect. My Dad and I have had a rough relationship growing up, but as I have gotten older we have gotten better. We just don’t express our emotions well =) But it does a great job without being overly sappy. Just an idea! =)

#1 isn’t really danceable in my opinion.

I’d go with 2 or 3.  Probably 2 since you know your dad is a fan.

That opening bass line to “My Girl” is perfect like just roll the credits there & it’s a happy ending.

”Can you feel the Love tonight” is a bit heavy or a father daughter dance.

What did your Dad say?

My Girl was my song with my dad. It was so sweet and everyone knows it.

My Girl has the least  inapproriate lyrics and everybody knows them.

I like “Isn’t she lovely” Stevie Wonder. When I was a little girl my dad and I had a special song, “I want to hold your hand” Beatles ๐Ÿ™‚
