I’m surprised no one said this yet, but ours will be “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle. I’ve known this from when I was little.

I don’t mean to hijack this thread, but does anyone have suggestions that could work for an uncle/niece dance? I will be asking my uncle, who I see as a father figure, to dance with me, but I don’t really want any songs about fathers/daughters. He’s really into country music, if that helps. Thanks for any suggestions!

 

If I were to do a father/daughter dance, I would probably do “And Then They Do” By Trace Adkins or “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” by Darius Rucker.

Ours is “Father and Daughter” by Paul Simon. My dad’s a big Paul Simon fan, and while we are very close, nothing too sappy would “fit” us. Even though I don’t think it’s a very sappy song, I played it the other night and FH said “oh man, your dad is going to be BAWLING!!!!” LOL, and he prob will be. Poor dad! 😉

@thimble and @gabrielleelise – i adore that Paul Simon song! It’s so sweet.

We are dancing to ‘You Are the Sunshine of My Life’ by Stevie Wonder.

@curlyncurvy:

I thought of a couple that could work:

– Because you loved me – Celine Dion

– My Wish- Rascal Flatts

– What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

– In my Life -The Beatles

– Little Wonders – Rob Thomas

Hope some of those help 🙂

We’re using Angel – Sarah McLachlan (he loves her music and this is the song he chose)

We were gong to use “Magic” by Ben Folds Five, but then changed it to “In My Life” by the Beatles.  We’re combining the father/daughter and mother/son dances into one.
