    Memory jogger ............Don't you rock me daddy o.........Lonnie Donnegan

  • How about Daddy, Daddy Cool by 'Boney M' FROM 1976. My kids were always singing it to me when they used it on a Vauxhall advert on TV. Happy memories before it became uncool to sing to your dad in the car.

    Tony

  • That was also by the Darts.

  • Oh Yeh, I remember them now, Talk about the boy in New York City and stuff

    in a sort of 50s style.

    Well spotted King

  • I think it was Lionel Richie

  • Luther van dross

  • Well done

  • "Song For Dad" by Keith Urban

    Lately I've been noticing

    I say the same things he used to say

    And I even find myself acting the very same way

    I tap my fingers on the table

    To the rhythm in my soul

    And I jingle the car keys

    When I'm ready to go

    When I look in the mirror

    He's right there in my eyes

    Starin' back at me and I realize

    The older I get

    The more I can see

    How much he loved my mother and my brother and me

    And he did the best that he could

    And I only hope when I have my own family

    That everyday I see

    A little more of my father in me

    There were times I thought he was bein'

    Just a little bit hard on me

    But now I understand he was makin' me

    Become the man he knew that I could be

    In everything he ever did

    He always did with love

    And I'm proud today to say I'm his son

    When somebody says I hope I get to meet your dad

    I just smile and say you already have

    The older I get

    The more I can see

    How much he loved my mother and my brother and me

    And he did the best that he could

    And I only hope when I have my own family

    That everyday I see

    A little more of my father in me

    He's in my eyes

    My heart, my soul

    My hands, my pride

    And when I feel alone

    And I think I can't go on

    I hear him sayin' "Son you'll be alright"

    Everything's gonna be alright"

    Yes it is

    The older I get

    The more I can see

    That he loved my mother and my brother and me

    And he did the best that he could

    And I only hope when I have my own family

    That everyday I see

    Oh I hope I see

    I hope everyday I see

    A little more of my father in me

    A little more of my father in me

    I hope everyday I see in me

    In me

    In me

    I hope everyday I see

    A little more of my father in me

    "He Didn't Have To Be" Brad Paisley

    When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new

    It always winds up feeling more like a job interview

    My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone

    Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

    I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old

    He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go

    A few months later I remember lying there in bed

    I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she'd say yes

    And then all of a sudden

    Oh, it seemed so strange to me

    How we went from something's missing

    To a family

    Lookin' back all I can say

    About all the things he did for me

    Is I hope I'm at least half the dad

    That he didn't have to be

    I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago

    We had the perfect marriage but we wanted somethin' more

    Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends

    Crowded 'round the nursery window as they bring the baby in

    And now all of a sudden

    It seemed so strange to me

    How we've gone from something's missing

    To a family

    Lookin' through the glass I think about the man

    That's standin' next to me

    And I hope I'm at least half the dad

    That he didn't have to be

    Lookin' back all I can say

    About all the things he did for me

    Is I hope I'm at least half the dad

    That he didn't have to be

    Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad

    That he didn't have to be

    Because he didn't have to be

    You know he didn't have to be

  • Super,I had never heard that one

  • ooo Libby, tears rolling down my face with this one xx

  • We all used to sing " Don't jump of the roof Dad" by Tommy Cooper. When I go out playing my 50's and 60's music, it still goes down well.

  • That was the top requested song on Fathers day on Radio Nottingham

  • Hi King

  • .Oh my pappa'was thw first record my dad bought me.Come to think of it ,it was the only record he ever bought me.

  • some great songs here - some I had never heard of thank you x I'd suggest 'Pappa was a rolling stone' (wish he was would be very, very, very rich ha ha) by Sly and the Family Stone I think - anyone remember it? and ??? I'm not your Daddy' by someone.

  • Hey... I heard this topic or a similar one on the radio on Sunday. I thought of Don't Cry Daddy by our other great king - Elvis Presley! . Lovelight x
