Songs for our fathers

Consider this a feeble attempt at coming up with a list of suitable songs for Father's Day. The most important word in the previous sentence was "feeble" and the least important was "suitable." If you can do better or have some suggestions, please share with the rest of the class:

1. The Foundation by Xzibit

2. Bridging the Gap by Nas and Olu Dara.

3. Papa Was A Rolling Stone by The Temptations - this song seems a bit cliche for the list but, upon closer listen, is one of the most thoughtfully written songs that I've ever heard in my life.

4. Be a Father to Your Child by Ed O.G. & Da Bulldogs.

5. Something by Eddie and Gerald Levert. You choose.

Bonus track: 6. What U See is What U Get by Xzibit. Not the song. But the video.

Bridging the Gap--Now that is a good one.
