A good song for a grandfather and granddaughter dance shows something about their relationship, such as "You're the Inspiration" from Chicago. It depicts a bond that lasts a lifetime.
If the granddaughter regularly looks to her grandfather for advice, the Judds' song, "Grandpa, Tell Me Bout the Good Ol' Days," is appropriate. It describes a conversation where the granddaughter asks about days long gone. "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong is a classic song that looks at life in a positive, optimistic way, so it is appropriate for a close and happy relationship. The support a grandfather has offered throughout a girl's life is displayed in Celine Dion's song, "Because You Loved Me."
