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!
