Father/Daughter Dance song...

My dad and I have a different relationship. I love him, and he is my father, but we haven't been very close in the last few years. My brother is walking me down the aisle, and my dad was disappointed by this (but it surprised me that he didn't realize that would happen). I told him that we would still be dancing.

I am trying to find a good song. I suggested to him one song that he used to play on the organ and we used to sing together to, but he doesn't seem to care for it (Fly Me to the Moon)... He suggested another Frank Sinatra song, but it's a very sappy love song that will not fit at all. 

I guess I am looking for some good song suggestions... We are not a Butterfly Kisses and Daddys Little Girl relationship type... so I just need something sweet and simple, a little affectionate, but not overly sappy... Thoughts??? :)
