I am dancing with my dad to Billy Joel’s “Lullabye”.  VERY sentimental but very sweet….we ALSO have a tedency to swing each other around other people’s wedding to the song “Cotton Eye Joe”…and we are horrible dancers and everyone laughs and loves it…..  My dad Hates!…sentimental So…the plan…we play my song and have the DJ scratch it into “cotton eye joe” half way through. 

 

Could you play your song for a bit and then have them shift into something that your dad could rock you around the floor to that he loves from the oldies?

I had to let the father/daughter dance thing go too.  I wanted to dance with him to Tiny Dancer, but he wants to dance to the song he named me after, which is DEFINITELY not a father/daughter dance song.

Could you maybe let your dad have this one and dance to Only You?  I honestly don’t think it matters too much if a song “screams father/daughter song”

What about My Girl? It’s only kind of sappy, it’s an oldie, and it sounds like it could fit both of you.

Or maybe I’m way off base?

I wish my Dad had an opinion on the father/daughter dance song…I’m trying to get him to help me pick one, but he just has no opinions on it!

We’re dancing to that song!!  My dad thought it was a little different, but he’s a really good dancer, so he’ll work something out to it!  I’m sorry that he doesn’t like it…I hope you find something that you’ll love equally as much!

@HotChild! I wanted to dance to TinyDancer.  Have you heard the instrumental version by Vitamin String Quartet?  That is my favorite song ever!

I finally decided to dance to the song Last Date.  It is a song my Dad has played on the piano for years.  So I’m having him play it on his keyboard and record it.  Then all we have to do is have someone go over and press the first key on the piano and his recorded version will start to play.  We’ve hired a band and I think they’ll play with it.  Sooo excited about that song choice!

I decided to let my Dad have complete control over the father/daughter dance song.  I trust his judgment, and it’s a way to get him involved in the wedding.  In my mind, the song doesn’t have to be “perfect,” it’s the thought that he picked something out that counts.  Sorry, I don’t have any really great suggestions for song choices.

We’re dancing to Two of Us, by The Beatles.  But I suggested those two songs (“Daughter” and “Father and Daughter”) to my dad as well, because I love all of them.  Two of Us made him cry, because it’s not a typical father/daughter song, and he was really touched that it reminded me of us.  I do have a Beatles theme running through my wedding, so it may not be your style like it is mine, but something to think about.  Play him Father and Daughter!!  It’s great!  You’ll figure it out–sorry it’s difficult!

We chose Fathers & Daughters by Paul Simon, but some other options that I selected were Stand by Me, Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison, Anything You Want by Roy Orbinson and There are Places I Remember by the Beatles.

Awww… I love that song.  It’s such a perfect father/daughter dance song.  Oh well.  There are lots of other good ones out there too…

My dad doesn’t like my songs either. He wants to do a fast goofy dance, but I can’t bare to do it. If it were up to him we’d probably be dancing to Love Shack by the B52’s. That was his favorite song to dance and embarass me to. lol. I picked Gracie by Ben Folds. Oh well, maybe I’ll opt for The Beatles :).
