    MY dad and i are dancing to Frank Sinatra's "the way you look tonight".

    i also like Harry Conick Jr's "Wink and Smile" but we're huge Sinatra fans so there it is.

          We FINALLY agreed on a song! We're going to dance to "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this song? I am worried it might be more of a love song than anything- though it does talk about being there and being your friend etc. Here are the lyrics though I am sure everyone has heard the song:

            You walked with me,
            Footprints in the sand,
            And help me understand,
            Where I'm going,

            You walked with me,
            When I was all alone,
            With so much unknown,
            Along the way,
            Then I heard you say,

            I promise you,
            I'm always there,
            When your heart is filled
            With sorrow and despair,
            I'll carry you
            When you need a friend,
            You'll find my footprints in the sand.

            I see my life flash across the sky,
            So many times have I been so afraid.
            And just when I, I thought I lost my way,
            You give me strength to carry on,
            That's when I heard you say,

            I promise you
            I'm always there
            When your heart is filled
            With sorrow and despair
            And, I'll carry you
            When you need a friend
            You'll find my footprints in the sand.

            When I'm with you,
            Well I know you've been there,
            And I can feel you when you say,

            I promise you (you)
            I'm always there
            When your heart is filled (when your heart)
            With sadness and despair (and despair)
            I'll carry you when you need a friend (need a friend)
            You'll find my footprints in the sand. (I promise you)

            Ohh. (I'm always there)

            When your heart is full of
            Sadness and despair, (and despair)
            I'll carry you when you need a friend. (I'll carry you)
            You'll find my footprints in the sand.

            Scarletina--- I think that sounds like a great "father-daughter" song! Go for it!

                  Can't remember if it's been mentioned, but "Daddy's Angel" is a pretty perfect country song.

                  Also, for those looking for a song from the daughter's point of view, there's a song called "It's for My Dad" by Nancy Sinatra (it starts a bit slow, but gets much more dance-able after the intro).

                  Still don't know what I'm picking, and the wedding is in a week!

                    Me either!! But I might hope on the "A Wink & A Smile" Harry Connick Jr. boat as my father and I have exactly that relationship ... we're friends and we have SUCH a laugh ... it has to be something a bit more lighthearted I think ...

                    Though I do love Sinatra and so does he ... hmmm ... I have no idea!!

                      I'm trying to decide, but right now am leaning towards "My Girl"
