Father/Daughter 80s song

Hi Ladies,
     I'm trying to find a great father/daughter dance song from the 80s. I've tried googling what was popular for father/daughter dances back in the 80s but with very little luck. My dad is one of those guys who kinda never got out of the 80s so I think it would be really appropriate. I'll ask him for ideas too, but I know most of his favorite songs are about sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll which wouldn't really go over that well. Any ideas would be great!

  • I'm looking for a song from the 80's to dance with dad to on my wedding too. 
    I love the suggestion of the Stevie Wonder song "I just called to say I love you"! My dad and I used to sing that song together when I was a little girl. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

  • Depending on your relationship with your dad, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" could be absolutely hilarious.
