Help Me Decide

My daughter asked me to pick a song for the daughter dad dance at her wedding in a couple of weeks. We really don't have a song with special meaning that would work for this dance so I'm open to ideas.  

I know this group is a silly lot but I'm actually asking for help here.

Got any ideas???

That's What Friends are For....by Dionne Warwick.  Isn't that what a parent is for a child who is grown-up....and one day you will not be around...?  I'm sorry....I lost my father....I did count on him.... "knowing you can always count on me, for good and bad times..."

For grown daughter, either somehow being inspired by the daughter growing up or etc.?

Lyrics

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you
And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you
And then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my heart
And then if you can remember

Oh, keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
Oh, that's what friends are for

Oh, keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
Oh, that's what friends are for

Oh, keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
'Cause I tell youl, that's what friends are for
Oh, good times and for bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
Oh, that's what friends are for (that's what friends are for, ya)
On me for sure (count on me for sure, count on me for sure)
That's what friends are for

I'm laster than you.  I had Weird Al Yankovic's One More Minute played at my daughter's wedding, but not for the Father-Daughter dance. 

So which Weird Al song DID you have for the father daughter dance? :D

We wound up with Sam Cooke's Nothing Can Change This Love.

I tried to find a Johnny Hartman or Nat King Cole one.  I Wish You Love sung by Nat or Natalie was a runner up.

At my wedding, the song was Unforgettable -- the duet version with NAt and his daughter.  It was a surprise and it was wonderful.

 This is what I told Ralph when he asked.

OH my  gosh.  I think I have been waiting to answer this question my whole Iife-- so many lyrics stuck in my head--

1.  I loved her first by Heartand

I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it's still hard to give her away
I loved her first 

2.  Paul Simon- Father and Daugher

there will never be a father that loves more than I love you

3.  Daddy;s Angel-- I can only remember the part that says-- I am giving you away but I'm not letting go

4, Daddy;s Little Girl- Tim McGraw

You're beautiful baby, from the outside in
Chase your dreams but always know
The road that will lead you home again
Go on, take on this old world but to me
You know you'll always be my little girl

 

5. And maybe my current favorite by Miranda Lambert-- He gave me roots, she gave me wings

When my oldest daughter gets married, I am going to suggest "Time after Time" by Cyndi Lauper. She was 2 when MTV was popular AND played music videos. Every time this video played, she would run from wherever she was in the house to see/listen to it. I recently re-looked at the lyrics. They would be appropriate.
