Best Songs to Dad Dance to

For when you really just need to wiggle your dad hips.

By Sylvia Rani


“Taste” - Tyga ft. Offset


It’s no secret that Tyga is the lyrical Shakespeare of this generation. With lines like “Say the wrong word, you be hangman/ Watch me stick to your b**** like a spray tan” and a sick beat to match, “Taste” is an ideal song to get a little dad dance action in. This is one of those songs with such a good beat, it’s hard to resist the urge to boogie. Bump this one at your next cookout and watch all the dads get lit in the best way.


“thank u, next” - Ariana Grande


From teenage girls to middle-aged dads, everyone has experienced the tragic loss of a relationship that didn’t work out. Fortunately for the broken-hearted, Ari is here to turn the pain into a lesson. Relationships are ephemeral, self-love is forever. While you might not catch your dad blasting this in the house, he definitely turns up the volume and lip syncs when it comes on the radio.


“I Gotta Feeling” - The Black Eyed Peas


An oldie but a goodie. When his song is on, 9 out of 10 dads will start fist pumping. Bonus points if your dad can pump to the beat.


“Old Town Road” - Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus


Billy Ray Cyrus is an inspiration to all dads, only getting cooler with age. His verse on “Old Town Road” is an ode to the flyness that comes with being a man with few worries and money to spend. Dads of all varieties will appreciate the cowboy fantasy that Billy Ray so effortlessly embodies.
