I need suggestions if father/daughter dance songs. Looking for r&b songs. Something other than Daddy-Beyoncé, Your Joy-Chrisette Michele, or Dance with my Father-Luther. Please help.

    My dad and I chose My Wish by Rascal flats. We chose it because the lyrics are exactly everything I have heard him tell me all my life.
    When you decide, I hope it means something to both of you. Good luck!

    My dad and I danced to My Girl by the temptations. I chose it because he gave me a card for my birthday one year and when I opened it that song played. I cried. It was only right to dance to that same song.

    I wanted to do that too cause my dad used to sing it all the time! But we are doing both our parent dances at the same time so that won't work

    Not R&B but listen to It Won’t Be Like This for Long by Darius Rucker. Or The Color Pink by Walker McGuire. They are more county but very sweet for father/daughter dances!

    I had the same issue as I love those songs but didn’t want the cliche’ Father-Daughter song. I happened to hear the song “If It Wasn’t For Your Love” by Heather Headley a couple of years ago and think it fits perfectly, especially if you’re doing both parent dances at the same time. It’s so beautiful, I plan to use it.

    Hope me this helps a little!

    Hello all, I tried to come up with or use one of the songs listed but it didn’t fit my dad’s Personality. I ended up using “One Love” by Bob Marley. Totally different from what I was going for but my dad was pleasantly surprised and he loved it.
