Songs For Dad


Sometimes we get to reflecting and thinking about our childhood years and our days of growing up so long ago (depending upon your age now). Our memories transport us back to our youth and how we interacted with our parents and siblings – the good times, the not-so-good times, the sad times and how we learned to cope with what we had. And for many of us that had a strong and caring father (or father figure) in our lives, we think back on how our lives were shaped into who we are today. The music list below represents songs that can remind us of our dad, some more insightful than others, some with not so perfect situations, but none-the-less, still remind us about him. Whether you called him dad, daddy, father, pops, papa or any other special name, this will serve as a collection of songs to find to download to your mp3 or computer or to burn to disc. This song inventory could also help make an ideal birthday gift to dad, or could serve as a fitting tribute for dad’s memory. Whatever the situation, here it is for you to decide.

JUST A NOTE >> A majority of the songs below are also listed in the Father’s Day post awhile back, but have been listed again due to the fact of the Father’s Day Song post being referenced only once or twice a year in early June. This reference is meant to be for year-round use as necessary.
