I am helping a friend do a photo montage DVD for her fathers 60th birthday. Her parents are divorced and she only recently started talking with him again so I'm not looking for the typical Father/Daughter lovey-dovey song.

The montage is really more about his life. We are starting out with photos from his childhood through the most recent ones. My friend says he likes Neil Diamond and she really wants to use "The Story of My Life".

Not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just that we couldn't think of another song that would even come close to working.

Anyone got any suggestions on a slow song that talks about growing up?

I used "Wonderful World" by Louie Armstrong in similar fashion with great success. It's easy to edit to and is always well received in a group setting.
