need a GRANDPA & Granddaughter dance song

SOOOOO..long story short...my grandparents raised me..and my gramps is my daddy.


All the father daughter songs seem to say something about daughter or daddy...does anyone know of a song I could dance to with my gramps since we'd be doing the father daughter dance together..he's walking me down the aisle and all.


I want it to be special and maybe something he may know(he's 86..so maybe something retro/oldies...but something new is fine too).


I'm a hip hop & r&b junkie..so my music taste...is not helpful in this search haha.

Ahh man.  I wouldn't even know where to start.  Hadn't had to think about it because unfortunately both my GP's have passed away.  What about a classic?  Something like by Ray Charles or Frank Sinatra or something.  What's that song "The Way You Look Tonight".

Grandpa by the Judd's  =)  It's country, but a great song.

My Dad and I danced to Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller Band for our first dance. Its all instrumental and I bet your gramps would know and like that song

I was raised by my grandfather also and am in the same situation.  I think we are dancing to "What A Wonderful World"-Louis Armstrong.  It's a great song that he will appreciate and it's slow enough for him too.

I like Butterfly Kisses and I saw her first. I don't think those have father daughter in them.

Missx...My grandpa is walking me down the aisle too. I gave him a bunch of different songs just as a go by and he ended up picking I Loved her First by Heartland...It's a country song.


My thinking was that my real dad has been MIA for so long that my grandpa is for all intensive purposes my dad...any song that has "dad" or "father" in it I think of my grandpa anyway.

I don't have a suggestion but I love this! My grandfather didn't raise me but if he were still alive I would have made sure to dance with him too!

I found this one, have not heard then music but the lyrics seem cute


Grandpa-The Judds

Words and Music by Jamie O'Hara

Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like
This world's gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy

(Chorus)

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress
But I just don't know
And Grandpa, let's wander back into the past
And paint me the picture
Of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

I'm gonna cry listening the song "Grandpa" by the Judds.  My father hasn't been apart of my life since I was very little and my Grandfather has always been a father to me.  He is walking me down the aisle and my two Uncles who were also like fathers to me as a child are walking me down the stairs to him.

How about Frank Sinatra - The Way You Look Tonight.  Here are the lyrics:


Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you...
And the way you look tonight.

Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart...
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart.

Lovely ... Never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it ?
'Cause I love you ... Just the way you look tonight.

Mm, Mm, Mm, Mm,
Just the way you look to-night.

I've been having a really hard time with this. I have a dad who raised me, but my grandpa has been there right behind me. Anything that my dad wouldnt support, my grandpa did. He lived seriously less than a mile away. So I want to have a dance for both of them.


for my dad- I loved her first by heartland


for my grandpa- The way you look tonight by michael buble


I really look forward to having the pictures of us dancing to show my children and such. I know he may not have much time left and it would be really special to have my grandpa dancing with me in my wedding gown. I just love him so much

 I'm also stuck in a similar situation.. Both my parents passed away & my cousin who is like a brother to me will be walking me out to my grandpa while the traditional "here comes the bride" song plays but then I'm stuck as to what song to play while Grandpa walks me down the aisle. I would use Grandpa by the Judd's but my older cousin used it as he walked her down.. HELP! Lol.

 Not necessarily for a Grandparent dance, but for anyone that isn't able to dance with their Dad (and wants their guests to dehydrate from crying too much!) how about 'Dance with my Father' by Luther Vandross???
