A list: 5 father-daughter songs

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.
