Is 'Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car' too fast or odd for a Father/Daughter song?

Looks like folks are forgetting you asked for a Father/Daugher dance - LOL

"All I want is you" would be a little creepy :)

 

Here's a few for you...

 

"Someone to watch over me" - lots of artists have covered it

"The way you look tonight" - again, lots of folks have covered it

"Things we've handed down" - Marc Cohn (this is the song I danced to with my father 9 years ago)

 

Cheers,

Anna

I believe when Bono wrote Original of the Species, he had Edge's daughter in mind, but I could be mistaken. I thought I read it in U2 byU2. He generalized it for public consumption. Not sure how that one would fly...check it out though.

Q Magazine November 2004

The Edge: "The last time I cried was listening to that song. It was a song Bono started on the last record about my daughterHolly. He's her godfather. The lyric became more universal. About being young and full of doubt about yourself. He probably won'tagree, but I think it has connotations for Bono, looking back to when he was 20."

U2 Has Luck Of The Irish For Biggest Ireland Gig

By Michael Roddy

SLANE, Ireland (Reuters) - It was a beautiful day, and night too, as Irish supergroup U2 brought its world tour back home on Saturday for an emotion-chargedconcert before its biggest audience ever in Ireland. "Thank you so much for coming out," lead singer Bono, whose real name is Paul Hewson, told80,000 adoring fans packed into a huge field beside Slane Castle on the Boyne River north of Dublin, under clear night skies. The mostly young audience wentwild as the supergroup launched into some of its biggest hits, including "It's a Beautiful Day," "End of the World" and the political"Sunday, Bloody Sunday" about killings in Northern Ireland in 1972.

The most poignant moment came when Bono sang "Kite," a song he hasdedicated to his father, Bob Hewson, a retired postal clerk who died on Tuesday after a long illness.

"I want to thank God for taking my old man away from his sickness and his tired old body and giving him a new one," Bono said before launchinginto the ballad, which includes the lyrics: "Who's to know when the time has come around/ Don't want to see youcry/I know this is not goodbye."

 

He may have wrote in for his daughters but it seems more poignant as a song for hisfather.

See you in Vegas Toddv!!

I'm glad Fortitude got my joke. I was trying to get the thread back on 'Father/Daughter dance' track.

 

Cheers,

Sammi
