Father-Daughter Dance Songs You’ll Both Love

This is always a tough song to pick because the selection is somewhat limited. It’s even more challenging if your taste in music doesn’t line up with dad’s. To find a song that makes you both happy and shows the importance of your relationship, consider selecting modern version of Dad’s favorite song, like a Michael Bubl√© cover of his favorite Frank Sinatra or Queen song for the Father-Daughter dance.

Below, some of my recommendations.

Classics:
► “Have You Seen Her Face ” – The Byrds
► “God Only Knows ” – The Beach Boys
► “Pretty Woman ” – Roy Orbison
► “Teach Your Children ” – Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young
