Father Daughter Dance-- Looking for a Great song!

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

I'm looking for a song for my dad and I to dance to in June. He isn't into country (sad, I know, I love it) and I'm very against bad 1970s music -- or anything that sounds like it.

 

I'd really love something contemporary or funky, like a David Gray or Eva Cassidy. Any ideas?? Thanks a million in advance, you ladies always have so many great ideas!

I'm not one of the ladies...

 

...but there are some great songs out there. Check out some suggestions in this thread:

For me, the song I'm going to dance to with my daughter on her wedding day is "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman - Not very funky, but describes exactly the way I feel about her.

 

Check out these lyrics:

 

She spins and she sways to whatever song plays,

Without a care in the world.

And I'm sittin' here wearin' the weight of the world on my shoulders.

It's been a long day and there's still work to do,

She's pulling at me saying "Dad I need you!

There's a ball at the castle and I've been invited and I need to practice my dancin'"

"Oh please, daddy, please!"

 

So I will dance with Cinderella

While she is here in my arms

'Cause I know something the prince never knew

Oh I will dance with Cinderella

I don't wanna miss even one song,

Cuz all too soon the clock will strike midnight

And she'll be gone

 

She says he's a nice guy and I'd be impressed

She wants to know if I approve of the dress

She says "Dad, the prom is just one week away,

And I need to practice my dancin'"

"Oh please, daddy, please!"

 

So I will dance with Cinderella

While she is here in my arms

'Cause I know something the prince never knew

Ohh-oh ohh-oh, I will dance with Cinderella

I don't wanna miss even one song,

Cuz all too soon the clock will strike midnight

And she'll be gone

She will be gone.

 

Well, she came home today

With a ring on her hand

Just glowin' and tellin' us all they had planned

She says "Dad, the wedding's still six months away

but I need to practice my dancin'"

"Oh please, daddy please!"

 

So I will dance with Cinderella

While she is here in my arms

'Cause I know something the prince never knew

Ohh-oh ohh-oh, I will dance with Cinderella

I don't wanna miss even one song,

(even one song)

Cuz all too soon the clock will strike midnight

And she'll be gone

i have the opposite problem, LOL! i loathe most country music, but someone played heartland's "i loved her first" for him and he loves it. the lyrics are nice, so i'm gonna suck it up since it's what he picked and he loves it so much. i just really didn't want a tearjerker since i'm such a crybaby, LOL.

I checked around and found a song by Billy Joel, what do you guys think?

 

Billy Joel - Lullaby (Good Night My Angel)

 

YouTube - Billy Joel - Lullaby (Goodnight, My Angel) - with lyrics

 

*Verse 1*

Good night my angel time to close you eyes

And save these questions for another day

I think I know what you've been asking me

I think you know what I've been trying to say

 

I promised I would never leave you

And you should always know

Where ever you may go

No matter where you are

I never will be far away

 

*Verse 2*

Good night my angel now it's time to sleep

And still so many things I want to say

Remember all the songs you sang for me

When we went sailing on an emerald bay

 

And like a boat out on the ocean

I'm rocking you to sleep

The water's dark and deep

Inside this ancient heart

You'll always be a part of me

 

(Musical Bridge)

Do do do do...

 

*Verse 3*

Goodnight my angel now it's time to dream

And dream how wondeful your life will be

Someday your child will cry and if you sing this lullaby

Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

 

Someday we'll all be gone

But lullabies go on and on

They never die that's how you and I will be

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
