@Bears-bub:  If you want to do something really non-traditional, you could perhaps do a song that reflects something about both you and your dad, but isn’t necessarily a father-daughter dance kind of song.  For example, if the two of you love the movies, maybe you could dance to a piece from your favorite one, or something like that.  My dad is very proud of his Polish heritage, and so we decided yesterday that instead of doing something traditional and sappy, we were going to break out into a polka!

I’m doing “Isn’t she lovely” by Stevie Wonder. It’s fun and classic!

I’m dancing with my dad to Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant. Fiance is dancing with his mom to Johnny Cash’s version of You are My Sunshine.

ETA – @sweetiejewels: I love that!

“What a Wonderful World” covered by Carnie Wilson (faded out about 2 minutes in). I love the Louis Armstrong version too, but this one broke up the all male singers for our first dance, father/daughter, and mother/son.

Paul Simon, “Father and Daughter” is a really sweet one, totally secular.

@Bears-bub: Why not let your dad pick the song, and surprise you with it? I think that would be fun, and I think I’m going to ask my dad to do the same thing.

I am trying to come up suggestions for my dad too.  He has a strong preference for older music.  I’m thinking about suggesting “G-d Only Knows” by the Beach Boys but I am not sure I want to commit to it because of the Love, Actually reference.  (I like the movie, but I don’t want people to think that’s why I picked the song.)

Fi is dancing with his mom and I’m dancing with my dad to Somebody by Reba.

Fi is dancing with my mom and I’m dancing with his dad to Pretty Lady by Trooper.

 

Somebody is one of his Mom’s favourite songs, and Pretty Lady is one of my mom’s.
