Father Daughter Dance Song, help

I am having trouble picking a father daughter dance song.

Here's some backstory:

My father and I were pretty close during my childhood, not super close in my teen years, and we are decently close now. He wasn't around much while I was growing up because he worked far away so he was only home on the weekends. Then when I was in middle school my parents divorced and I saw him maybe once a month. He has always been a good supporter, but I don't have the typical warm fuzzy memories of being daddy's princess.

I want to find a song that works for us, but every one i find that could work is a funeral song.

    How about "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong?

    I should have added that was my parents first dance song at their wedding, if they were not divorced I would totally use that. Thank you for the suggestion though Smiley smile

    I don’t know if you’re into country, but I have a similar situation in that my dad and I are kind of just getting close again but we don’t have the warm fuzzy feelings yet that most father daughter songs have. So I’m picking “Stealing Cinderella” by Chuck Wicks because it focuses on the daughter being really young in the father’s memory and the singer is singing from a husband/fiancé point of view, saying he’s coming in and stealing the father’s little girl. I like it because I think it fits our situation, so maybe you could give it a shot too.

    I love county music, but my dad hates it unfortunately! I love that song for a father daughter dance song! I might be able to talk him in to it. Thank you for the suggestion Smiley smile

    Following. My dad and I have always been closed (so fortunate), but neither of us is really maudlin or sweet. So... trying to figure out a slower song that works has been a pain. I can empathize.

    It definitely is lol. If you were close with your dad but not super sweet and lovey listen to Dad by Tyler Wood. It makes me cry every time! I linked the music video below. It is so good!

    At the end of the song he does say " I am the man that I am because I call you dad " But I'm sure your dj could end it a few sends early to avoid that.

    Hi Molly! Perhaps a good classic song like It’s a wonderful world, Isn’t She Lovely, or an instrumental song? You are so thoughtful to give your dad this moment with you and I’m sure he is touched you are including him, even if he may not be the type to express his emotions. ❤️
