Cyndi Lauper Girls Just Want To Have Fun is such a great and fun song. Cyndi Lauper is one of those artists that it is hard not to like. She is fun, talented, creative and seems to always be completely herself in whatever she does. A true unique talent who has not veered from her own style and way of doing things. She was very loyal to her first band that she recorded with, Blue Angel, not allowing the record companies to break them apart. She eventually found her way as a solo artist and was the first woman to have four Top 5 hits from the same album.
“Lauper knew she could write songs, but the record company had a lot of material they wanted her to record. She altered a lot of the songs that were thrown her way, often changing the lyrics to suit her. An example is her Platinum-certified Cyndi Lauper Girls Just Want To Have Fun; Lauper says the original lyrics of the song dealt more with a girl pleasing a man, and therefore she changed the lyrics, wanting the song to be more of an anthem as she felt the original song seemed misogynistic.” Wikipedia

As we continue to explore the different possibilities for Wedding DJ Dance Songs, along with The Bridal Party Introduction Songs, First Dance Songs, Mother-Son Dance Songs, Bouquet Toss Songs, Garter Toss Songs, Cake Cutting Songs and Last Dance Songs, it seemed time to list the most popular Father Daughter Dance Songs.
I have included two separate lists of Father-Daughter Dance Songs for Wedding DJs below. The first list of Father-Daughter Dance Songs is taken from WeDj.com, a resource I use and am an active member. This list of Father-Daughter Dance Songs is more traditional and based on popularity. The secod list of Father-Daughter Dance Songs is taken from various wedding forums of Briddes conversations abouttheir upcoming weddings. They are alittle more off the beaten path and represent the non-traditonal Father-Daughter Dance Songs, Brides and Fathers. The non-traditional Father-Daughter Dance Songs also have a music player for you to listen to the Father-Daughter Dance Songs. There is some overlap but I wanted to keep the lists intact as they were for you.
Top 100 Wedding Father/Daughter Dance Songs
The following list represents the most popular wedding dance songs for father and daughter. It has been compiled from thousands of wedding requests, dynamically created by Gigbuilder, the most popular web-based event management system in the world.
It is still hard to imagine how globally popular Beyonce really is. I remember many times walking down streets of South Korea or Mongolia or Taiwan and hearing Beyonce Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it) blaring out of stores when passing by. It was typically a refreshing sound for me as an American in Asia. Most of the pop music there is an a language either I cannot speak at all or limited at best.
Young girls would ask me what the words of the song Beyonce Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it) meant from their American hero Beyonce. I would teach them words like ‘ring’ and ‘marriage’ and ‘it’ while watching them want to learn for the first time with vigor and passion. The same happened when Michael Jackson died with some of his songs like “Thriller” in particular.
I am not able to say why this global explosion for Beyonce has occurred. it is not that I doubt her talent or music, but she has a worldwide image that very few can rival. This song in particular, Beyonce Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it), has reached audiences and women everywhere. Whether the crowd is Indian, Korean or American, play Beyonce Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it) and the women will get up and dance. Another example of how music can erase boundaries as little else can.
It is equally surprising how this song has become a staple in the life of a professional Wedding DJ. A significant percentage of wedding Brides have Beyonce Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it) as the Bouquet Toss Song. I wonder how Beyonce feels about her song having that kind of appeal and use by professional Wedding DJs throughout The USA? I am curious if professional Wedding DJs will still be playing this at most wedding in ten years from now?
For reasons I have not completely figured out, when I first started my journey as a professional DJ, I was booked on a regular basis by local police and firefighters for parties. Many of these parties were reunions and local chapters of P.A.L. and other fraternal organizations. These events were all good times and primarily the music was Oldies centered, which typically make fun parties.
Today I still get to do some of these kinds of events but what has manifested recently is the opportunity to serve our troops by offering discounts to our military service men and women at their weddings. Last night I met with a young couple. The Groom is home in between deployments for his wedding. After spending time with both of them, I felt good about the decision I made a while back to offer professional DJ discounts to our troops.
The wedding should be fun. I look forward to being able to support them and be a apart of their day. We set-up the music and coordinated the events of the cocktail hour and reception. All systems go for a beautiful August wedding.
