What song should i use for the child/ parents dance?

So before my 8th grade graduation, ( like a few days) we have this thing called Dinner Dance. We cater in food & have a DJ. But I need to tell him what song he should use for the first dance; which is a dance with your dad if your a girl, or mom is your a guy.

I have no idea what song to use.. /:

i thought maybe 'Dance with my father again'- luther vandross

but thats more daddy/daughter. Please help!

What Are You Willing To Sacrifice To Become The Best Writer Possible?

(I wrote this some years back as I was pondering the cost of giving up a well-paying job to free up more time for my artistic life.)



How about the conceptualization of
intra psychic structures? For fun?

Balderdash, say you? Tennis, anyone?
Tennyson, anyone? Not keen on Lord Alfred?
Can't say I blame you. Being long dead
might just explain why he's under-read.

While starlets and scalawags share a bed
true genius seldom keeps the family fed.

Stephen Hawking taps his fingers to the beat
of Coleman Hawkins, while his quarks collide
with grand octaves - music and math glorified.

One bled this from his soul.
The other one just knows.

While there is no correlation between creativity
and financial gain, both provide their rewards.

The trick is in choosing
what the spirit can afford.

How much is one willing to give up to ensure
either smugness of mind or stock options galore?


How readily do we barter the soul?
And when we do who's left to know?

And at what point do saints
take on the role of sinners?

And when all is said and done
who dictates the real winners?


(The point is, what are we willing to sacrifice for our art, be it painting or writing or whatever creative field we are drawn towards?)
Eythan, I did walk away from a well-paying job to have the time to paint. But I also waited at least until my daughter was through college and out on her own.
And, by the way, I may not have much security-wise but I'm creating my best work now.
Yahoo only allows for one 'best' answer and there are several here I would very much like give this to. So please don't feel slighted it your reply wasn't chosen.

I thank you all for your sincere responces.
