Theres one line that just makes me break down everytime I hear it...the end line to the chorus. The song talks about dancing on dad's toes as a little kid, then him spinning you around in the air. The end of the chorus goes... "How I'd love, love, love..to dance with my father again."

I'm sitting here bawling just thinking of it in my head. Great.
I am crying right along with you. Thats is a wonderful idea! I know I couldn't handle that so you are brave to do that.

My father passed in 1996 so my dance with be with my mom. It will be kind of funny because I am taller than her. We are thinking of Bob Dylans forever young. The lyrics remind me of what your parents would wish for you. Don't shoot me but I am not a huge Dylan fan! I know he is from MN and I should love him but his voice grates on me. I will work through it for this beautiful song. Also not a Rod Stewart fan so we must stick with the Dylan version.

No, I don't like Macy Grey either. Her voice is horrible though.. IMHO. Rod Stewart is a musical genius!

Hi! I am bumping this thread because I'm trying to decide on a father daughter song too and thought I'd see what others have come up with recently!

Yes, I've got the disco booked after our dinner at Mammee Bay. Chandlyn sent me a form that we can fill out and give the DJ with songs we want for "First song", "Father Daughter dance", "Mother Son dance", "All couples", etc, so this is my current focus is finding some perfect songs! :)

i let my dad choose and he knew right away he wanted, "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle. He said it has always given him goose bumps. I think he has been thinking about it for a while. So cute!

a girl I met the other day danced to "I loved her First" a country song that is a bit of a tear jerker.. so again not what you're looking for!

But for others who may be interested here's a link to it on youtube:

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
