good dad songs

Unread postby RC611V » Tue Nov 12, 2013 8:13 pm

We have a thread somewhere about good dad movies, maybe one about good songs already too, but I haven't seen it.

I originally just liked the music in this song, but as I listen more, the lyrics are pretty cool and I like them too. I was driving with my daughter the other day, and we listened to it, and she identified a line in the chorus that says 'Try your best... try everything you can' and she said, 'Hey dad, that's like you, you do your best!'. I had recently talked with my kids about something that I felt I'd messed up on, and I told them I make mistakes but I do my best and they can always talk to me and I'll do my best for them. She was referring to that, I am pretty sure.
Another part of the chorus says 'Little girl you're in the middle of the ride', and when I told my daughter that, she said 'No it doesn't!' and I said yeah it does, so she listened to it closer and heard it, and now it is a little part of something that is ours.

I'd never watched the video before I made this post, and it doesn't look especially 'dad friendly' or whatever, so just listen to the song if you want to get my meaning, hehe.

Any songs you like that motivate you?

On a side note, I am listening to a relatively new world of music lately, and finding out that happy music isn't so gay, hehe.

Also, this song has some lyrics that apply a lot to divorce.

A lot of us start out thinking EOW is all we're going to get. We believe the < feces > the world has told us about what we're going to get in the divorce.

For me, and I think a lot of guys, the biggest obstacle is learning to ignore that stuff. The song says a lot about forgetting what other people say and doing the best you can. And it takes time, but everything will be alright.

I am not religious, but I believe that more now than when I did believe in god. I have more hope and confidence and joy believing in myself than when I trusted in god an thought I was worth dust.

Not a huge fan of this group, but I like this song. He wrote it for his daughter.

There's an R&B song that Daddies of daughters would hope their sweeties might sing...

It's all good until the little girl goes home with the drummer. Enjoy:

The video is super cheesy, but the song always gets me when I think of my D10 growing up.

I like happy music most of the time and play songs on the way to school that I hope lift up the kids; they do it for me. So this isn't specifically 'dad' music but I like it for when I'm with my kids.

I like this song for the same reason. I put this stuff in Pandora but don't get a lot of similar songs... if you got any, let me know...
