So I am 25 years old and getting ready for the one of the biggest day of my life only to realise I have never danced with my dad. I need a song for not only it being the father daughter dance but something to say this is the first time we have danced any song suggestions?

@ABalman: I had a hard time because a lot of the father/daughter dance songs I’ve heard are very predictable and seems like I’ve heard all before.
I wanted a song that meant something and moved me (cheesy, I know). So I chose Never Alone by Lady Antebellum. SUCH a great song and the words are spectacular.
You might want to youtube it and check it out. My work computer no likey the youtube. 🙁

Is there a song that both you and your dad love? If I hadn’t known what song I wanted, that’s what I would have looked at. It doesn’t have to be a song about a father and daughter or about weddings, it can just be a song you both love or that means something special to you both.
The song I chose is very common, but I love the meaning and knew the first time I heard it that I’d dance to it with my dad. 🙂

I second @dodgercpkl I looked for a while for a song that reminded me of my dad or a memory we had together. In the end I went for one that made me think of my dad and smile, AND we could dance too.
We are dancing to Paul Simon “Father and Daughter” but I also considered Willie Nelson because we played that a lot together when i was growing up and “Annie Song” by John Denver as it remindes me of a few great vacations together. I also considered “baby mine” from Dumbo because I watched it every day for over a year. None of my alternates had anything to do with father and daughters but just happy memories we had together

@magicchill: That’s what we’re using! 🙂 I actually hope a few people get weepy ’cause I’m probably going to be bawling. I’ve never danced with my father either.

My dad and I are in the same position and we both don’t really like to dance, so I am worried it’s going to be super awkward. He decided he wanted to start out with a slow song and then break out into some goofy dance like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaazQs3H0-U
I guess we’ll see how it goes. We don’t have the songs chosen yet.
