One classic song for a father-daughter dance at a sweet 16 party is Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely." This is a nostalgic song, told from the father's point of view as he sees his baby daughter for the first time.
Another classic is "Unforgettable." The virtual duet version of this song performed by real-life father and daughter Natalie and Nat King Cole turns a romantic melody into a family-oriented number. "Stand by Me" by Ben E. King reminds parent and child that they both have someone upon whom they can always depend. Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" describes happy moments families have shared. The title of one of Paul Simon's songs says it all: "Father and Daughter." The lyrics offer love, support and advice.Learn More
