With Father’s Day just around the corner, cue the overflow of golf related items, wallets, socks, and the latest tech gadgets on store shelves. With family celebrations and gatherings, there’s always the need for music to set the mood.
In need of some Father’s Day songs to make that brunch playlist just perfect? Fear not my friends, here are 6 under-rated Dad dedicated tunes that are bound to warm everyone’s hearts this June 19th!
- The Best Day – Taylor Swift
It is eery how accurately this song depicts my relationship with my father. From the first time I heard it, I knew that when (if) I get married, this would be my father-daughter-dance song.
- Daughters – John Mayer
This song ended up winning Mayer a Grammy, and it’s no surprise why. Definitely a tune to listen to the other 364 days of the year.
- Beautiful Boy – John Lennon
For all our readers who are sons- this one’s for you. Mix John Lennon’s musical gift with some tear jerking lyrics and you’ve got yourself one hell of a melody. Keep the tissues close.
- Butterfly Kisses – Bob Carlisle
This song is about a father getting ready to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding, and if that doesn’t give you warm fuzzies, I don’t know what will.
5. Dance With My Father – Jessica Sanchez
This song was originally written by Luther Vandross, but this version is the perfect modern remake of a timeless classic.
- Dance With My Daughter – Jason Blaine
If your Dad loves country music, this one will be your winner! Originally written as a tribute to his daughters, this song is guaranteed to pull on everyone’s heartstrings.
They say that music can set the mood for an event, so hit up your Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music (or whatever you use) libraries with these classics. Grab your Dad, or Grandfather, or Uncle and give them a squeeze because if these songs don’t hit you in the feels, I don’t know what will. Here’s to all the men who have acted like fathers to us over the years, this day is for you!
