I`m looking for the perfect father/daughter song...but there`s a catch. I`ll be dancing to this song with my step-dad. He`s my only father so I feel bad for calling him my step-dad. Finding the perfect song has been a little tough because he`s been in my life since I was 9 years old and a lot of the songs have things in it about being a baby with your father. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

I would check out some songs on Christina Aaguilerra`s albums.

Have you listened to the song Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle. It starts off with singing about when the girl was a young girl, but it doesn`t sing about babies. It then goes on to sing about the girl`s sweet sixteen and then her wedding day. The father is singing about how lucky he is too have her in his life and how he can`t believe how fast she has grown up. It`s a really nice song. If you are any bit as emotional as me, you will probably cry when you listen to it.

What about "Unforgettable"? It is a father/ daughter duet with Nat King and Natalie Cole.

My niece danced w/ her natural father to the song "To Sir, With Love" from the Sidney Poitier film by the same name. In the film, a singer named Lulu plays a high-school student who sings this to her teacher. It might be very fitting for your situation, & your dad will likely know the song.
If you rent the film to hear it, the song is sung at its end, at the "prom".

I don`t know how involved your father has been in your life but Celine Dion`s, Because You Loved Me is a great father/daughter/mother song

I am going to be dancing with my grandfather instead of my dad ( long story) and we are dancing to Unforgettable. It`s such a pretty song.

I love Natalie Merchant`s song Kind and Generous. It`s a great song for any ocassion really!
I know exactly how you feel. I personally am going with the song Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle. It is a beautiful song!

The song by Brad Paisley, He Didn`t Have To Be, is an amazing stepfather/stepchild song. It`s a male singing about himself, but I`m almost positive it`ll get the point across. (My H2B gave it to his stepdad for chrismas. Many tears ensued!)

He didn`t have to be is a beautiful song, but listen to the lyrics. It is about a man singing about how he wants to be the type of father his stepfather was. There is nothing in there about daughters at all. Yes i agree there are a lot of beautiful songs, but one must look at whether or not there are appropriate for a wedding.

For my wedding I used "There you`ll be" by Faith Hill. It`s on the Pearl Harbor soundtrack. There`s a line that says " I`ll keep a part of you with me and everywhere I am there you`ll be." It`s a wonderful song.

The faith hill song is very pretty, but isn`t it about losing a loved one??? I don`t know if that would be a good song.
