Help! Dance Songs

I have quite a predeicament on my hands, it seems. I will be having a father/daughter dance (because I think it's the right thing to do), a gradfather/granddaughter dance (because he's my grandfather) AND  an uncle/niece dance (because he's the one who's been there for me) at my wedding. I have my dad pegged, but can't seem to find a good song for my grandfather or my uncle. I have aske for their help as well, but anything you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated.
SN: I hate country.
I already listened to "Ballerina Girl" by Lionel Richie and "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole

    I think that is a lot of dances to make your guests sit through.  Are you going to do them one right after the other, or spread them out throughout the night?  Maybe you could just do one song, and start with your dad, have your grandpa cut in, and then have your uncle cut in and finish the song with him.

    One of my favorite songs of all time is Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.

    I agree w/PP. You could dance w/uncle and grandpa w/out making it an "event" that everyone has to stop and watch.

    If you do decide to make it a special event, maybe you could ask them if they have anything specific in mind. Or pick a song by a band/singer you know they like. HTH!

    I agree with pp's.  You want to make all of them feel special, but you don't want your guests to get bored.  Ten minutes of watching two poeple dance is a little much.  Doing one song and having them all cut in would be really sweet.

    "Unforgettable" is a great song.

    I'm using "I Loved Her First" by Heartland for my father/daughter dance.  Maybe you could use that for one of them.

    I'm not making my guests "sit through" anything. Everyone is invited to dance the entire time. I will make a short announcement that a particular song is dedicated to a particular person. So I don't think my guests would be "bored" knowing that they are welcome to dance as well.
    I originally asked for songs that would be good. But I found them regardless. Thanks!
