Modern Father Daughter Dance Songs


If you're like us, you devour new tunes, cherish a good melody, and love when a song gives you goosebumps.  When you and your dad take a spin on the dance floor you want it to feel memorable and sentimental without being overly-sappy. We asked the team over at Scratch Weddings what they recommend for this once-in-a-lifetime father-daughter moment and, along with a few of our favorites, created this list of ten songs that totally fit the bill. 

“Gracie” – Ben Folds

“Sweet Pea” – Amos Lee

“Daughters” – John Mayer

“It Won’t Be Like This For Long” – Darius Rucker

"Home" - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" - Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole 

"Paradise" - Coldplay 

“Unforgettable” – Nat King and Natalie Cole (A 3rd time remake) 

"100 Years" - Five for Fighting

"Green Eyes" - Colplay
