For the father daughter dance, people love songs that incorporate the word daughter. Whether it's Paul Simon or John Mayer those are complete classics.

Definitely choose something that means something to you and your father. It could be a song from a movie that you loved together growing up or a Broadway show, or even just something you love just bopping around to. Make sure it's not too inappropriate. Sometimes people choose love songs not realizing it but it makes the crowd feel a little bit uncomfortable.
