12. Papa Don’t Take No Mess • Hell (1974) • James Brown
We think the title speaks for itself.
13. My Heart Belongs to Daddy • That Bad Eartha (1953) • Eartha Kitt
My Heart Belongs to Daddy may be the ultimate Father’s Day song. A number of amazing singers have made this song their own—Mary Martin, Marilyn Monroe, and Ella Fitzgerald to name a few. But we love Eartha’s purr.
