My dad passed away almost 10 years ago. My mom is walking down the aisle and i'm having both my brothers dance with me. One cutting in on the other one. I love my brothers and they would be there for me if I really need something but were not really the closest. But they also remind me so much of my dad. So it will be special..

I need help finding a song to dance to with them. Its really hard for me to find..

any help???

what about something non-slow /traditional.....

I just googled it and someone suggested praise you by fat boy slim ("We've come a long long way together, through the hard times and the good. I want to celebrate you baby, I want to Praise you like I should") or another obvious choice (in my mind) would be we are family by sly & family stone

Wildflowers by Tom Petty is a favorite of mine...and it has a great instrumental part in the middle that would be a good time for brother 1 to hand you off to brother 2 :)

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere all bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover
Run away, let your heart be your guide
You deserve the deepest of cover
You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free

Aww forestdancer, if I were getting married I'd be in the same boat as you. This is something I've wondered about nearly all my life, as my dad passed when I was just 6 years old. I plan to do the same with my younger bros and my dad was a HUGE Springsteen fan...when I heard this song for the 1st time yeeeears ago, I knew it will be in the running when my turn comes. Beautiful instrumental strings in it too :heart:

"You're Missing"
Bruce Springsteen

Shirts in the closet, shoes in the hall
Mama's in the kitchen, baby and all
Everything is everything
Everything is everything
But you're missing

Coffee cups on the counter, jackets on the chair
Papers on the doorstep, you're not there
Everything is everything
Everything is everything
But you're missing

Pictures on the nightstand, TV's on in the den
Your house is waiting, your house is waiting
For you to walk in, for you to walk in
But you're missing, you're missing
You're missing when I shut out the lights
You're missing when I close my eyes
You're missing when I see the sun rise
You're missing

Children are asking if it's alright
Will you be in our arms tonight?

Morning is morning, the evening falls I have
Too much room in my bed, too many phone calls
How's everything, everything?
Everything, everything
You're missing, you're missing

God's drifting in heaven, devil's in the mailbox
I got dust on my shoes, nothing but teardrops
