    Funny you asked this, I’ve been debating the exact same question… I’m also a dancer and when I was a kid I performed a dance to that song that my dad really loved, so the song has special meaning for us. But even after reading through the lyrics I can’t quite decide for sure exactly what it’s about or whether it’s inappropriate!

    I vote no.  My mother was a dance teacher and I took for about 20 years.  That song is not about a friendship or relationship appropriate for a father daughter.

    How about something and choreographed?  Know you can ‘swing’ that right?

    good fun song if you want to get things moving:

    Dancin’ in the Streets

    and here are 10 more sentimental classics (voted on by dads for father daughter dances):


    Two which might work for you well from this list are Frank Sinatra’s version "The Way you Look Tonight" and "Unforgettable" duet by Natalie/Nat King Cole.  Either of these would be gorgeous with a touch of choreography!

    I voted "no" simply because I feel the song isn’t quite appropriate. The "tiny dancer" part is nice but not so much the rest.

    Hmm, I don’t think it’s that creepy.  The one line that gets me is "now she’s in me, always with me."  Yeah, it’s a close one.  Probably no one will be listening to the lyrics, but if it’s going to bother you, then I say go with something else.  What a shame, though!  Elton John is the best.  🙂

    A really good father daughter song is "Turn Around" by Harry Belafonte.

    It’s very touching, and nice and slow for your dad who is already a big guy, but then is going to have a lot of emotions effecting him then too.
