"That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine": The Mother of All Father's Day Playlists

Posted: Updated:

"That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine" has been gone for more than a year now, so these days I'm pretty much in the business of getting father's day gifts rather than giving them. But I will always believe that the gift of music is more beautiful and powerful than even the nicest tie or pen set. So here's my musical gift for all of the other dads out there in Huffington Post-land. As always, please add your own and let's help make this the mother of all Father's Day Playlists:
