Growing up, my hometown always had a daddy-daughter dance. Up until the age of twelve, my father and I would attend and they are some of the most precious moments we had. Even though dad has some cringe-worthy moves (sorry pops) there were certain songs that really got the party started.

It is safe to say that if it wasn’t for my dad, I wouldn’t have the taste in music I do today. With this in mind, Thortful.com has created the ultimate top dad dancing playlist. Here are the top 10 songs and artists on the list:
