Thats because many famous Dad ditties could actually hurt pops pride.
For example, Harry Chapins Cats In The Cradle is a sarcastic Daddy sing-along with a cruel chorus: When you coming home, Dad? I dont know when/ Well get together then, Son/ You know well have a good time then.
And though Dad may like Neil Young, skip his ballad Old Man, unless you want Dad to think it Doesnt mean that much to me, to mean that much to you.
Rockers should steer clear of Everclears Father of Mine because it includes the bitter lyrics, Father of mine/ Tell me where do you sleep/ With the children you abandoned/ And the wife I saw you beat.
Definitely dont play The Doors The End, even Oedipus would agree that Father? Yes, son?/ I want to kill you, wont help Dad celebrate his big day.
Finally, avoid Eminems Daddy, Dont Go, which guarantees a dysfunctional Dad day, as Slim Shady rhymes: Now you know that I really hate you/ I wish I could shoot you.
