Are you stuck on picking out a song for your parent dance?Â You want something that fits your relationship…something different…but not too different?
A few tips before you start beating your head against the wall in frustration over finding the “perfect” parent dance song:
- Ask your mom or dad if they have a particular song in mind.Â If they come up with a song that’s special for them, it’s one less thing you have to worry about.Â Job done!
- Think back to your childhood.Â Is there any song or artist who makes you think of your dad?Â Does he have a favorite singer?Â If so, this could point you to the right song for your parent dance together.
- Don’t worry about the lyrics too much.Â (Most people don’t listen that close anyway.)Â If you find a song that’s meaningful to you, who cares if it’s an “official” parent dance song.Â You and your dad will get it.
- If you do choose a less traditional song for your parent dance, ask your entertainer to provide a simple explanation for your audience.Â For example, “Jennifer picked out ‘You Are My Sunshine’ for her special dance with her father because he sang it to her when she was a little girl.”Â Instantly an unusual parent dance choice becomes perfect.
