Wedding: Song for Father-in-Law Dance

My husband has two brothers, and the last one is getting married this weekend. Because he has no sisters, his father has never had a father-daughter dance at a wedding. My future sister-in-law wants to remedy this and have a special FIL dance at the wedding (and she wants to have me and our other sister-in-law participate). Anyone have song ideas? It doesn't have to be a slow song. Thanks!

What can I do next?

What a wonderful idea! All the song's I come up with are definately geared towards a father and daughter but that is the idea...right?

Daddy's Hands by Holly Dunn
My Little Girl by Tim McGraw
Butterfly Kisses (can't remember who sings it)

Update - Just thought of Family Tradition by Hank Williams Jr since it doesn't have to a slow song.

My old friend is a dj and here are some suggestions they have for the parent/child dances. Some of these i wouldn't rally agree with, but maybe they will give you some ideas:

Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion
Isn’t She Lovely - Stevie Wonder
I Loved Her First - Heartland
How Sweet it is to be Loved by You - Marvin Gaye
Have I Told You Lately that I Love You - Rod Stewart
I Wish You Love - Natalie Cole
In My Life - the Beatles
Oh, Mother of Mine - The Temptations
You’ve Got a Friend - James Taylor
I Hope You Dance - Leann Womack

Here are a few more:

Most of these ones are a little less "sappy" and a little faster paced:

You FIL is lucky to have such wonder DIL's to think of him.

Good luck.

Go to www.ask.com and type in father daughter dance songs and you will get a bunch of web sites that let you listen to the songs so you can pick one. I doubt that they will have one for FIL daughter but she will be his daughter now so father daughter will work.

"What A Wonderful World"- Louis Armstrong

Great idea!
We Are Family by Sister Sledge?

What about a classic Beatles song? In My Life.

The Way You Look Tonight - Frank Sinatra

I think that since you are not his "daughters",exactly, it might "get weird" if you do one of traditional daddy/daughter songs...
