Re: Brother is giving me away...

    For anyone else who may be looking, I've stumbled across a lot of lists that say the same few songs, and I really wasn't feeling most of them for my dance with my brother. I think I've decided on "In My Life" by the Beatles (he always teased my love for Beatles, but I think he'd appreciate these lyrics).

    For anyone who is looking for brother/bride songs, though, here's the list that turned up over and over in all of my searches.

    Brotherly LoveKeith Whitley & Earl Thomas Connally
    Come DancingThe Kinks
    He Ain't Heavy, He's My BrotherThe Hollies
    I Wish You LoveNat King Cole, Natalie Cole, Or Barbara Streisand
    Lean On MeBill Withers
    MemoryBarbara Streisand
    Rainbow ConnectionKermit The Frog
    Through The YearsKenny Rogers
    UnforgettableNat King & Natalie Cole
    What A Wonderful WorldLouis Armstrong
    Wind Beneath My WingsBette Midler
    You've Got A FriendJames Taylor Or Carole King

    I am sorry to hear about your Dad. Maybe try asking your brother if he has a special song in mind? If not, I think any song you like and is meaningful to you, will work.

    My brother is going to be giving me away as well bc my dad has passed away.  I never thought about doing a dance with him though...  I would say, don't feel like you HAVE to.  More power to ya if you wanna go for it though.

    I'm gonna youtube all of these songs thought, just in case. (haha)  Who know... maybe I'll change my mind.  Thanks for the song list!

    My little brother 9yrs younger is giving me away as well I am 38yrs old.  I struggled A LOT with this as my dad passed away 3yrs ago and I never imagined he would not have the opportunity to give me away.  When my Dad was dying Kenny Chesney's song "Don't Blink" came out everytime I hear the song it has a special place in my heart for my Dad so my brother & I will dance to that song first then we will do a second song something on the silly side as that is the kind of relationship me and my brother had.  I have got close to my brothers in our adulthood but as kids different story.

    Good Luck!
