Music has the power to connect us all, and a recent survey by Dignity Health has found that dads are actively choosing to use music to bond with their children.

96% of dads said they listen to music with their kids at least once a week. This simple act can make dads feel happier and more in-tune with their children. The survey revealed that:

  • Music makes dads happier and more connected: 78% of dads surveyed feel happy when they listen to music with their children and 61% say it makes them feel more connected.
  • Music plays a role for the majority of dads with young children: 50% of dads with kids five and under listen to music every single day as an activity with their children.
  • Dads and teens still bond over music: More than 1 in 3 dads still listen to music daily with their teenagers.

The top 10 songs dads reported listening to with their children at the moment are:

  1. “Natural” by Imagine Dragons
  2. “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey
  3. “Baby Shark”  
  4. “Livin’ On A Prayer” by Bon Jovi
