When it comes to the father/daughter dance song, I really want to find a song that both my dad and I really like,. I don’t want to be a crying mess dancing with my dad—I want to have a good time and ‘dance it out’ with my dad.
I’ve been listening to a lot of music my dad used to play to me while I was growing up. While some songs are not as appropriate (The Monkeys), others are good contenders (Elton John, Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, etc). Here are a few songs I’ve been listening to.
Fleetwood Mac “Landslide”
Elton John “Tiny Dancer”
Billy Joel “Lullaby”
Elton John “Your Song”
John Mayer “Daughters”
Elton John “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”
Tom Petty “Free Fallin’” (Live from Gainesville ROCK CITY!)
John Mayer does an acoustic version of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin” but I prefer the original (even if it isn’t really wedding appropriate).
Okay, so there are quite a few from Elton John. What can I say? I’ve got a thing for Elton. I have so many songs I like… are we allowed more then just 1 father/daughter dance?
Which one do y’all like most? Do you have any other suggestions? What does Dolphin Dad think?
