Song Ideas

Any song suggestions for Step Father and Daughter Dance?
I’m dancing with my Dad too, but my Step dad and I are much closer. He’s literally my best friend. I am just having a hard time picking the perfect song without hurting feelings (I know I shouldn’t care but I do)

thank you!

    I completely understand! I originally had chosen “I loved her first” for my dad and “stealing Cinderella” for my step-dad and I thought both of those were really good. I have now settled on “Just Fishing” for my step-dad because I can remember up even until now going out just him and I fishing. It is not your typical father/daughter song but it really speaks about our relationship.

    Just find something that means a lot to you and go with it. Hopefully everyone with understand and not have any hurt feelings. Good luck!!

    This One's for You By Luke Combs. I danced to that with my Father In Law at my wedding.

    Hey Brooklyn!

    What genre of music do you or your stepdad like?

    Some option that I like are -

    Wildflowers by Tom Petty

    You Are the Sunshine of My Life - Stevie Wonder

    When You Need Me - Bruce Springsteen

    To Make You Feel My Love - Bob Dylan

    My step-dad and I will be dancing to Brad Paisley- He didn't have to be.

    My dad was never in the picture and my mom married a couple times after that. My step-dad stayed my dad even after they divorced. He is very important to me because of the way he accepted me and treated me as his own.

    Your post made me immediately think of You're my Best Friend by Queen.
