I am father to a wonderful daughter and songs like that creep me out.
Doood, not at any point did i endorse using the snark, its just an ok tuner. I Can detect a very serious tone in your postYour the one desperately concerned about the snowflake groom and some inane need for dad to show "confidence" in him and you want to get snarky with me?
Tell us more, I love stuff like that. X rated Weird Al.Gotta be careful with that stuff. Back in the day one of our favorite past-times was to see who could come up with the vilest, most vulgar lyrics to the saccharine garbage we had to play.
Those lyrics tend to sneak out of the band room at the worst possible moments, if you get my drift.
That was 27 years ago... Only one that comes to mind is the one we did for Groovy Kind of Love, which we got as a wedding reception request.Tell us more, I love stuff like that. X rated Weird Al.
Opposite of that, I was working on comically G rated alternate lyrics for Buck Cherry's "Crazy Bitch" so the cover band I was in could play it in front of any audience. All I came up with was "Goose, you're a silly goose. I'm really thirsty and I want some juice."
Yeah you can love and devote yourself to your daughter without the creepy jealous thoughts a lot of these dads have. TGP seems to be in to it though.It's creepy the possessive, borderline sexual relationship some Dads have with their daughters.
My Dad wasn't like that with my sister and my wife's Dad wasn't like that with me.
Even the song - Is the singer so insecure about himself that he has to spell it out like that, and go through the trouble of writing a song about it, spending money on top NAshville session cats, and studios, etc . . .?
The song choice just doesn't really seem to beam with confidence in the groom at all
I'm just not getting the whole sexual angle to this conversation. I suppose that's my point.I am, what's your point? This song is about fatherly love competing with romantic/sexual love. It's beyond weird.
I definitely get the sentimental next-phase-of-life part. But you wouldn't sing "I loved him first" about your son... because it'd be a real weird thing to say, just like this.I'm just not getting the whole sexual angle to this conversation. I suppose that's my point.
This is actually the heart of it that I didn't even realize until some very astute fathers as yourself and others brought this up.I have a daughter and this song is very strange. Why go out of your way to compare your parental love to the groom's romantic/sexual love?
They are both important and also very different. At least they're supposed to be. Seems like we have a lot of confused dads here...
We've played it many times. It's an excellent Daddy/daughter dance song. Great melody, touching lyrics, perfect dance tempo and great instrumentation. There's a reason why we're even discussing it. Because it works.Yeah, I'm about as unsentimental a guy that you're gonna meet, but I had to learn that song for a wedding gig last year, and I had to practice singing it about 40 times before I could get through it without getting a bit, uh, emotional. I have a 21 year-old daughter.
That said, the song is pure cheese.
From your avatar photo, I'm suspecting you're not married.Okay this we can agree on. Definitely from a Pure commercial utility perspective it definitely works.
I guess excessive pesticides work also on the food that we eat
