For the woman who still has Dad wrapped around her little finger, this song is perfect for the father-daughter dance. While it's fairly new, the song has a vintage feel reminiscent of Wainwright's '70s folk-rock hits. "Daughter" offers a quirky, upbeat alternative to the classic ballad, with a mid-tempo beat that's easy to dance to. The lyrics describe the wonder, humor and joy of fatherhood, combined with Dad's knowledge of just how vulnerable he is to the whims of his little girl. Because of the truly heartfelt feeling behind the song, it's best for brides who share a solid history with Dad. It's unique but appropriate for any type of wedding.
