Father-Daughter Dance Song Classic Rock??
So I have been trying to find a song to dance to with my dad. There are the usual ones that a lot of people suggest but those ones don't really fit my dad and I. The only song I have come up with is Celine Dion "Because you loved me" and that is because I used to love her when I was a kid and my dad would always buy me her CDs. I asked him about that song and he seemed like he didn't want that one. So I was back to the drawing board. I went to my first concert with my dad to see KISS. He is a huge classic rock fan and likes Journey, Bon Jovi, Peter Frampton, etc...can't think of all of them, but you get the idea. So far I have struck out on slow songs for Journey and KISS because they were definitely love songs (ones that I would feel awkward dancing with my dad to). Any ideas of a slow song from a classic rock band that isn't going to be weird to dance to with my dad??

Oh and my dad jokingly said lets dance to "Peter Frampton Comes Alive"...which if you don't know that song is almost 15 minutes long. At least I hope it was a joke!! LOL

Like a Bridge Over Troubled Water. Simon & Garfunkel?

Not sure if this classifies as classic rock but.... :)
edit: hmmmm I listened to it again...maybe it's too sad? I originally really liked it because it seems to have the message "I'm always there for you" kind of thing...anyway I hope you find something you like, I am having trouble with this one too-it's tough!

Ha! If you're going to do untraditional anyway, pick a faster song and dance differently to it! Do the twist or something. It may be less sentimental but it will certainly be memorable!

I wonder if it's possible to dance to "Sweet Home Alabama"? My dad grew up in Alabama and everytime that song plays we always turn it up and sing it really loud. I just never thought of it for a father-daughter dance song.

I like this song and have been thinking of using it for my dance with my father, because he doesn't want a mushy song to make him tear up but I am looking in the same route, he loves the allman brothers, eagles, moody blues - but they are all jam bands and their songs are about 20 minutes long! lol

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I am creating a list so my dad has some choices because I somehow doubt he will be able to come up with one on his own. I am starting to think that he is worried that whatever song it is will make him cry. He likes to play tough, but he is really sensitive when it comes to family and his little girl :)

Lauren....Trust me, I have done it twice, no matter what song you pick, your father is going to cry. Being a serious classic rock fan, I applaud your idea to go the classic rock route. I don't know if your father likes Billy Joel. He is softer rock. However, his lullaby to his daughter is outstanding and a tear jerker. It is called "Lullyby" Good Night My Angel)

Here are the words:

Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you've been asking me
I think you know what I've been trying to say
I promised I would never leave you
Then you should always know
Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
I never will be far away

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay
And like a boat out on the ocean
I'm rocking you to sleep
The water's dark and deep, inside this ancient heart
You'll always be a part of me

Goodnight my angel, now it's time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me
Someday we'll all be gone
But lullabies go on and on
They never die
That's how you and I will be

If you do Frampton comes alive (FH loves Peter Frampton) you could always ask the DJ to cut down to your favorite minute or two instead of dancing to 15 minutes of song. My dad hasn't chosen yet but if he can't think of one we'll probably do "youve got a friend in me" and cut it down to a couple of minutes. I don't want to be dancing to 2 full songs in front of a bunch of people!

Thanks for all these great suggestions. I am in search of a song for the father-daughter dance as well. Love the Billy Joel Song!

You might want to totally surprise your dad by choosing a song from you to him -a tribute to him. Take a listen to "You're My Hero" at www.weddingmusiccentral.com. Most of these songs are from a dad to his daughter but this would be about your feelings for him. It is a great song and you won't hear it at everyone's wedding!

Amanda....Holy crap! I totally forgot about that song!

So my dad is so unpredictable. I sent him a list of the songs you all recommended and he comes back with a curve ball...he picked a song...on his own lol. I was shocked. He wants to dance to "Aubrey" by Bread...I have never heard of that song, but I listened to it and it was beautiful. So I guess that is settled. Thanks for all of the advice.
