Summer love. It's not just about new whirlwind romances but about weddings, family vacations and spending quality time with your dear ones.

It's also a time to celebrate the original No. 1 man in your life for Father's Day. We spoke to Toronto-based radio and TV personality Taylor Kaye about the most popular, cheesy and classic father-daughter songs. Dancing with your dad is sentimental to begin with, so why not milk it, right?

Kaye, a host on radio station KISS 92.5, says one music theme that's making a comeback in father-daughter dances is country.

"If you look at some of the country artists who are on mainstream TV maybe that's why ... Blake Shelton on 'The Voice.' Keith Urban on 'Idol', Kellie Pickler winning 'Dancing With the Stars,'" she says.

"Their songs may not be on the list, but for sure their country roots may be influencing how brides are picking their songs. Country lyrics seem to hit home for father daughter dances."

If you think it's hard to get even more cutesy, check out this hilarious father-daughter dance mash-ups.

We've also got a list of the top 25 non-cheesy father-daughter songs. What is your favourite father-daughter song? Let know in the comments below.
