Help Father of the bride dance song.

Please help me fellow gonners. My daughter is getting married next Saturday. She's asked me to choose the song for the fathers dance with the bride. Your suggestions would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
My daugther and I danced to "I Loved Her First" by Heartland.

Another good one is "I'll Be" by Edwin Mccain.
How about Clapton's "Beautiful Tonight"
And then there's Butterfly Kisses...that is, if you want to spend that dance wiping away tears...LOL
Daddy's Little Girl--Michael Bolton version
My kid brought tears to my eyes when she chose "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders (Chrissie Hynde)

Congrats of your daughter's wedding!

My daughter was married last weekend,we danced to "The Way You Look Tonight" from the Father of the Bride movie.
Special moment,doesn't get much better for a dad.
"I only have eyes for you". Alot of performers did this cover, I think the best was by Art Garfunkel
Butterfly Kisses--hands down--thread is now concluded--NEXT:-)
I love the Pretenders choice. It's a great song. Check out Larry Graham's "One in a Million You". Larry was the cool wickedly funky bass player in Sly and the Family Stone but this song is a departure being a ballad. Beautifully sung, a tad on the cheesy side, but killer R & B. PLEASE don't select the Clapton choice. It is positively lame.
What about "Big Papa" by Notorius B I G? LOL....just kidding of course.

Definitely the Sinatra version of " The Way You Look Tonight", an excellent tempo and the theme sends the proper message without choking everyone up. Your daughters wedding should be fun.

Congratulations and I hope it goe without a hitch!

I have used "Turn Around" as sung by Nanci Griffith from the album "Other Voices, Other Rooms" for years - (I perform at a lot of weddings, and I often DJ the receptions.)
IMHO, it's less syrupy than Butterfly Kisses and Daddy's Little Girl, but every bit as poignant. Never a dry eye in the house after this one!
Was written by Malvina Reynolds, Harry Belafonte & Allen Greene, but I love Nanci's version the best.
Lyrics include:

Where are you goin' my little one, little one?
Where are you goin' my baby my own?
Turn around and you're two
Turn around and you're four
Turn around and you're a young girl
Going out of the door

Where are you goin' my little one, little one?
Little dirndles and petticoats, where have you gone?
Turn around and you're tiny
Turn around and you're grown
Turn around and you're a young wife
With babes of your own

Congrats and enjoy!

here's a different train of thought...

I doubt any song is adequately going to convey proper sentiments or speak to one’s soul. I’d choose something uplifting that you and her can dance too easily. Perhaps something by someone she likes, or something that touches some prior event you both enjoyed. It’s a big day for the both of you, maybe something out of both of your past remembrances’ would suffice. It isn’t necessary to shoot for perfect here…. Merely pleasant.
Just married off my daughter over the weekend! I used "Love and Happiness" by EmmyLou Harris off the "All the Road Running" cd by Mark Knofler. Beautiful song about your wishes for your children.
I knew I could count on you guys. Thanks you've been a big help. I'm not sure of the final final choice yet but I'm leaning towards the Prentenders "I'll stand By You", Fleetwood Mac "Landslide". I still have to check out some of these other suggestions.
Thanks again to all.
You might want to check out the song "Daughter" by Peter Blegvad. It's probably best known in the version performed by Loudon Wainright III at the end of the movie "Knocked Up". I think you'll find the lyric moving and it is certainly appropriate for that dance.

Good Luck

Leon Russell, "Lady Blue". Beautiful song written for his daughter.
My daughter and I danced to "Boogie Shoes." As you might expect, there is an inside joke there.

Mills Brothers " Daddy's Little Girl " fantastic harmony, a REAL CLASSIC !

JK, thougt it was hialrious in the movie.
