Top Father-Daughter First Dance Songs


After the crowd wipes away teary eyes from you and your new mister's first dance, the waterworks start again as they gaze upon you and the man that raised you taking the dance floor.

He's the man who held you tight when you stubbed your toe, who put a band-aid on your skinned knee after you fell, who taught you how to throw a tight spiral and go out for a pass, who read The Best Nest to you in a funny voice (just to make you laugh) . . .the man who shared his wisdom without even trying.

Whether you and your old man have more than your fair share of fights and disagreements or are the best of friends, the first dance is a time to celebrate the man that raised you to be the woman you are today. No matter how many times you may have failed each other, love has somehow conquered all.

It's the last time he will be your caretaker before he hands you over to your new protector, and you want a song that captures all that he means to you. These are the 100 most popular first dance songs for a new bride and her father:
