    Ok... so I'm reading this thread at work, and am pretty much balling at this point. Just thinking about that dance. My dad and I have always been so close, and since we're true southerners, it would only be appropriate to use a country song. I grew up on it, and love it. So now it's time to pull myself together, and go look at the funnies board. Awesome suggestions everyone!... (tear)

      Thanks for the post! There are a lot of songs that I never even thought of!

        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:

        YouTube - I Loved Her First
        I just went to You Tube and listened to it. Thank you for sharing because I just found the song for my Father-Daughter Dance!!!

          I am thinking of 'I'll stand by you' by Rod Stewart since my dad is a big Rod Stewart fan. The Carrie Underwood version is also very nice.

            I was just about to make a post about "I'll stand by you." I was thinking the Carrie Underwood version. We are doing the father/daughter and mother/son dance at the same time, so I was hoping this would work..

              Mt stepmom wants us to dance to Butterfly Kisses. But I am not sure that I want a father/daughter dance. I LOVE MY DAD! If we do wind up having one it will be an upbeat dance. Probably an oldie. Everyone is so surpirsed (my FI is mainly embrassed) that I know oldies as well as I do. But that is what we use to listen to on road trips.

                I haven't chosen a song yet, but my dad and i aren't particularly close so i'm not doing an "announced" father-daughter dance...i'll just choose a song and when the dj plays it, i'll find my dad and dance with him. keeps the uncomfortable all alone center of attention thing down, but we'll still have a dance together.

                  That's a good suggestion! I actually work with my dad so our relationship is weird, we are almost too close! We spend EVERY day together! I think I need to do something upbeat and happy not sappy.

                    I think I've decided on "Two People Fell in Love" by Brad Paisley. It's me and my dad's favorite song because it's so close to our family. It's a beautiful and heartfelt song about how the only reason we are here is because two people fell in love and cycle it takes. It just hits close to home when it talks about the family reunions and stuff. Definitely give it a listen, if you don't know the song... Here are the lyrics:

                    Two People Fell In Love lyrics

                    A baby's born in the middle of the night in a local delivery room
                    They grab his feet, smack him till he cries he goes home the next afternoon
                    'Fore you know it he's off to school and then he graduates in May
                    Goes out and gets a Ph.D. and then cures all sorts of things
                    Wins a Nobel Prize and saves a million different lives
                    The world's a better place for all he's done
                    It's funny when you think about the reason he's alive
                    It's all because two people fell in love

                    Right now at a picnic shelter down by Caney Creek
                    You'll find potato salad hot dogs and baked beans
                    The whole Wilson family's lined up fillin' their paper plates
                    They've drove or flown in here from fifteen different states
                    Well Stanley Wilson says that sixty years ago he knew
                    That Miss Emma Tucker was the one
                    Now five generations get together every June
                    All because two people fell in love

                    [1st Chorus]
                    There ain't nothin' not affected
                    When two hearts get connected
                    All that is, will be, or ever was
                    Every single choice we make
                    Every breath we get to take
                    Is all because two people fell in love

                    Well, I recall a young man who was driftin' aimlessly
                    And a young waitress who seemed lonesome as could be
                    But in a little caf°³ right off of fourteenth avenue
                    With a whole lotta help from up above
                    We met and things sure turned around for me and you
                    And all because two people fell in love

                    [2nd Chorus]
                    Baby, there ain't nothin' not affected
                    When two hearts get connected
                    All that is, will be, or ever was
                    I'm glad your dad could not resist
                    Your mama's charms and you exist
                    All because two people fell in love

                    [Tag]
                    You know, to me it's all so clear
                    Every one of us is here
                    All because two people fell in love

                    A baby's born in the middle of the night in a local delivery room
                    They grab his feet, smack him till he cries he goes home the next afternoon

                      A girl I work with used "To Sir with Love" for her dance with her dad.
