70 Best Father-Son Songs – Dad Son
Occasionally we take a tangent from the wedding-only song lists. There are several types of occasions that require a special song. One of them is a wedding, yes. Others are for family celebrations and, sadly, funerals. This article features our list of special songs between a son and his father.
What Are Father-Son Songs?
Father-son songs are special when a groom wishes to dedicate a special song to his father at the wedding reception. You can use this song in a slideshow or it can be included in the DJ’s playlist for your wedding reception. If you plan to surprise your father, be sure to talk about it with your partner and a professional wedding coordinator.
This wouldn’t necessarily be a dance song. Rather, suggest playing a song in the middle of the wedding reception that everyone can dance to, whether it be a fast or slow song.
Of course, if you and your father are dancers, feel free to create a choreographed routine and bring in the groomsmen or the groom’s siblings. This can be especially meaningful if the father has a milestone birthday near the wedding date. Heck, it could be the other way around. Maybe it’s the father’s second wedding and his son is turning 25. It’s completely up to you.
How Do You Choose a Father-Son Song?
Set some time aside to think about what your father means to you (or vice versa). List some of the qualities he has that are meaningful to you. Journal notes about some special memories. If you do this while listening to our Spotify playlist, we’re certain one will resonate with you.
We recommend that you choose a song that conveys a special meaning between the father and his son. Think of a song where the lyrics speak to you. If a special song doesn’t come to your mind right away, don’t worry. We have 70 of the Top Father-Son gongs to choose from here.
Other Occasions for Father-Son Songs
Father-Son songs aren’t just for your wedding reception. These sentimental songs can also be played to celebrate a milestone birthday, your Father’s retirement, or even Father’s Day. It is already a day to celebrate Fathers so why not dedicate a song to your father?
Fathers can also play the songs to celebrate the birth of their new baby boy, their graduation, or to commemorate special bonding days like a fishing trip.
