The Ultimate Soundtrack to Fatherhood

Today we celebrate Dad. The man, the myth, the legend in his own living room.

You can’t help but love that guy! You’ve been through so much together – ups, downs, falling out, falling around laughing, loud fights, white lies and a million stories.

 So it’s time to relive all those moments with a musical tribute to Daddy Cool. This is the soundtrack to your time together – the ultimate soundtrack to fatherhood!

 

There is a Light that Never Goes Out - The Smiths

Can you imagine how miserable the perma-gloomy Morrissey would be if he ever tried to soothe a newborn into sleeping through the night?

 


I'm Going Slightly Mad – Queen

And as the delirious exhaustion sets in the next day, your poor dad felt like he was losing it.

 


Born to be Wild - Steppenwolf

Because sometimes when you were feeding credit cards into the video player and trying to eat the cat’s dinner, he wondered if you’d ever be tamed.

 


Blue Monday - New Order

And for all those hours he spent slogging away at work, just to keep you in the chips and crisps lifestyle you lived.

 


Friday I'm in Love - The Cure

After a long week of earning a crust, nobody deserves a relaxing weekend more than dear old dad (but don’t let mum hear that).

 


Paint it Black - The Rolling Stones

For all those dad-roles he fulfilled without complaining (much), like mum’s decorator…

 


Driving in My Car - Madness

…and your personal chauffeur.

 


Don't Look Back in Anger - Oasis

For all the times you misbehaved and had to beg for a merciful reduction in your grounding.

 


We Didn't Start the Fire - Billy Joel

Because he caught you playing with a lighter that time.

 


Hard to Handle - Otis Redding

And because no matter how good you tried to be, there were always times you over-stepped the mark and made steam come out of his ears…

 


I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys

For all the times he embarrassed you with his dancing at weddings.

 


Dancing in the Dark – Bruce Springsteen

And because that dancing looked like this.

 


Out of Touch - Hall and Oates

Because he just couldn’t understand how vital it was you got those cool Nike Air Max before school started back.

 


Hero - Foo Fighters

And for all the times you’d be lost without him…

 


Keep up the awesome work, dad!
