    Okay, I have looked through HUNDREDS (Maybe I'm exaggerating) of lists of songs that I could use for my father/daughter dance.

    I'm being so difficult and it's driving me crazy.
    This is one of the most important dances to me because my dad and I are very close.

    I'm looking for something with a bit of an edge but I still want to have a beautiful song.

    For example..
    For my first dance it's going to be "Thank You" (originally performed by Led Zepplin) By Chris Cornell.

    It's a beautiful song, but it has a bit of a rock edge to it.

    Do ANY of you girls have any suggestions?

        I am a huge fan of led zeppling and had never realized what an amazing song that is!!
        I would suggest you listen to the Chris Cornell version if you haven't!

          Do you two have a song that is special to you both?

          Maybe something you used to sing when you were little?

          A friend danced with her dad to "Rainbow Connection" by Kermit the Frog because it was something that she always sang to him and they used to watch the Muppets together.

          John Mayer's "Daughters" is kinda different.

          i got stressed trying to find the perfect song for me & my dad too. so i let him pick. he ended up picking a song i actually sort of hated, but it was still perfect anyway. my stepmom told me he spent a whole week on the computer going through music trying to find the perfect song. so then i didnt hate it as much when i realized that he spent soooo much time looking for what he thought was the perfect song for us.

          honestly, the only thing i remember is having such a fun time dancing with my dad, having that daddy-daughter moment, that i dont even remember the music playing!

            definitely check out lyrics ... not sure all these would be appropriate for father/daughter, just looking for songs that are sorta "rock" ballads.

            i'll stand by you - the pretenders
            stand by me - john lennon
            good riddance (time of your life) - green day
            your song - elton john
            sweet child o' mine - guns 'n' roses
            i don't wanna miss a thing - aerosmith
            time after time - cyndi lauper or bon jovi
            drive - the cars
            wherever you will go - the calling

                i didn't want to do a real slow song with my dad so i've been looking at different options. since my friends call my dad 'pistol pete' because he's a total gun-toter and has all daughters (no sons), i'm thinking we're going to dance to rodney atkins "cleaning this gun" hahha

                brown eyed girl is also a contender

                  I'm so glad you posted this, because I was just thinking about songs the other day!
                  My best friend got married last year and for her father/daughter dance they used "My Wish" by Rascall Flatts, it was a tearjerker!
