So, went to a very nice wedding for a dear friend last night. You know it’s a nice wedding when they perform the complete “Dance Suite,” including the touching father-daughter dance. Last night’s song was “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle, a touching little ditty. Very appropriate for the occasion.
As “Friends” is to graduations, “Butterfly Kisses” is to weddings: required.
But that got me thinking: What would be the top 5 most inappropriate father-daughter dances? Well, here’s a list, but I’m sure you can come up with better ones.
- “Let’s Get It On,” Marvin Gaye (over the line? Maybe?)
- “Sexual Healing,” Marvin Gaye (ah, there’s the line)
- “Baby Got Back,” Sir Mix-a-Lot
- “Beds are Burning,” Midnight Oil (There’s nothing like making a political statement and awful double-entendre at the same time!)
- “Every Breath You Take,” The Police (It’s not a good sign for the groom.)
Honorable Mentions: “Mean Old Man,” Jerry Lee Lewis; “Open Arms,” Journey (or almost any song from their greatest hits album); “Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself?” Morrissey; “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” Joan Jett and the Blackhearts …
And the list goes on. Your turn.
