Songs written by a dad for their infant daughter:

"Jessica," Dickey Betts, Allman Brothers Band
"Aubergine of the Sun," Ott
"Isn't She Lovely," Stevie Wonder

Anything else? There's "Still Fighting It" by Ben Folds, but it a) is written about his son, not a daughter and b) instead of being "oh man you are great holy shit I am in love with my brand new kid" it's all "someday you're going to grow up and it's all going to be depressing!" which is not the vibe for which I am looking.

Any other nominations which fit the theme?

Man, I thought about Gracie but kind of reject it, because it was written when she was years older. And I heard him tell the story about it when I saw him this summer, and it made me hate him for a minute. To sum up: "So my wife had twins, and I immediately wrote a song for my son. But I didn't write one for my daughter. And then I didn't release another album for years, haha! But then eventually I did, so obviously I *had* to write a song about Gracie, otherwise I would get in trouble; but she was old enough to understand stuff, so I had to write a song that a 5 year old could understand! Hahaha, aren't I adorable?" Man, eff you Ben Folds. YOU ARE A MUSICIAN. FUCKING WRITE A SONG FOR YOUR INFANT DAUGHTER EVEN THOUGH YOU DON'T HAVE AN ALBUM COMING OUT. OMG WTF.

So, uh, vetoed.

And is "Stay Up Late" actually about his own kid? Seems unlikely. No one wants their kid to stay up late. Sorry for having such stringent rules about my imaginary mixtape!
