Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N Roses. 

 The lyrics are cute though.

She’s got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I’d stare too long
I’d probably break down and cry

Sweet child o’ mine
Sweet love of mine

She’s got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I’d hide
And pray for the thunder
And the rain
To quietly pass me by

Sweet child o’ mine
Sweet love of mine

Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Sweet child o’ mine

I seriously considered Sweet Child of Mine!  But, oh, the guitar solos.  No idea how one would actually dance to that song.  😀

I’m thinking of some version of "Me and My Shadow". My mom always used to sing that around the house if you were following someone around eagerly. It was most frequently used with the …eh hem… dog (she was a very hungry dog…) but it would also be used if you were following someone around because you knew they were going to do something special for you (like give you a present or good news or something like that).  Anyway, there’s a fun and upbeat version with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr.

Sheryl Crowe actually does a cool version of Sweet Child O’ Mine that is without the guitar solos

I danced with my dad to "Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra.  Sentimental enough, but with a boppy beat so it’s not too tragic!  It got a lot of "aaaaahs" when we started.

Then my husband and his mom joined in half-way through the song.

I take it that most people are having a DJ?  We are having a little jazz combo with a torch singer for part of the evening and a two-girl duo for part of the evening.  So we are sort of picking any song we want, and they can do it in any style (punch it up a little, slow it down).  They are super talented, and have come up with really unique and fun arrangements for some of the standards (mostly in response to my comment that I hate this or that song as it is so overdone).  If you have musicians, I would encourage you to try that!

We danced to In my life by the Beatles

<pre class=”lc”>There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
