9. My Father's Eyes by Eric Clapton A heartbreaking song that has a beat to it - listen to lyrics to hear why.

8. Papa was a Rolling Stone by The Temptations This was the tune in 1972 and still a solid track for you and dad! Listen up and we dare you not to dance!

7. Daughters by John Mayer Mayer's Grammy-winning single, 'Daughters' encouraged fathers to "be good" to their daughters while they're young, so that they too can have positive relationships with their loved ones in the present and future.
