    Thanks for this thread.  I have 1 problem...and please give me plenty of feedback.  I have 3 "dads": my biological father who was absent for 11 years of my life but he and I have formed a great relationship, his uncle who helped raise me and has been consistent in my life and has always supported me in EVERYTHING and then my stepfather, who has been with me since I was 14 and has NEVER treated my like anything but a daughter, we are actually closer than he is with his daughters.  Would it be too much to do short dances with all 3?  I know for my uncle, it will be My Girl by the Temptations.  He introduced me to music and this was one song we always sang together.  My stepdad, I am thinking Your Joy by Chrisette Michelle, I can still, at 28, curl up to him and talk about anything.  He and I talk more than my mom.  My main problem is with my dad.  We are much closer than ever imagined but I have no clue what song.  I was thinking of paying homage to him with some of my early memories of him and his music, however, I he was and still is a big NWA & LL Cool J fan.  Should I ask him what song he thinks?

      I'm going with Heartland..I have listenned to it a few times and every time I end up sobbing..it is so perfect for father daughter.   My dad cries when he hears it too, so I think it's a good pick.

        We are both going to dance at the same time to My Wish- Rascall flatts. I looked at some others as well but this seems the most fitting since we are doing both at the same time.

            1. Butterfly Kisses Bob Carlisle's Butterfly Kisses is one of the all-time favorites. The message is loved by dads and daughters alike and the tempo makes dancing easy. 2. When Angels Fly When Angels Fly is a new addition to our top ten list of father-daughter wedding songs. Performed by Tony Ransom & The Heavenly Light Orchestra, it is at once inspiring and memorable. 3. I Loved Her First What a great song for a father-daughter wedding dance! By the country/pop group Heartland, this song will melt the heart of daughter, father and every onlooker. 4. Through the Years Through the Years by Kenny Rogers is a timeless song of love and is a favorite of many of my friends. It is a little bit country, which appeals to many dads and daughters, but is sweet and memorable. 5. Sunrise Sunset The wedding song from the Fiddler on the Roof is a long time favorite for the dad and daughter dance. It was sung at my wedding reception 29 years ago, and has special memories for me. And it makes for an elegant dance given the slow and graceful tempo. 6. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You) This James Taylor classic hit is a great but less often used wedding dance choice. Many dads remember it from their youth and it is a lot of fun to dance to. This is not your classic waltz, but it is still memorable. 7. The Way You Look Tonight An old Frank Sinatra tune (with the Count Basie orchestra) is a wonderful dad and daughter dance number. It has a fun beat and is well crafted for a little swing dance at a wedding or reception. 8. Unforgettable You can't listen to Natalie Cole's version of her father's hit Unforgettable without feeling the warm affection between a father and a daughter. And it is easy to dance to as well. 9. Lullabye (Goodnight my Angel) One of Billy Joel's soulful songs sings a lullaby to his daughter and provides a favorite dance song for weddings. This is a unique song--not one you'll hear at every wedding--and still is meaningful to a dad and his newlywed daughter. 10. My Father's Eyes Amy Grant's performance of My Father's Eyes is sweet and soulful and will be loved by both you and your daughter.

            Great list... I let my dad pick a song and he chose...."i loved her first"! I had never heard it so I can home and listened to it...... Wow what a tear jerker.... But it's BEAUTIFUL!!

                    I thought my dad would pick one of the classics I suggested to him but he picked the one not many people will know because he liked the words so much, Edwin McCain - I'll Walk With you - definitely a tearjerker but definitely made for this specific occasion!
