Music from Pretty Little Liars Season 2, Episode 22: “Father Knows Best”

Spencer and Peter Hastings at the dance - "Father Knows Best"The father-daughter dance at Rosewood High was every bit as lovely as we had imagined it to be. From the decorations that transformed the plain cafeteria into a marvelous party venue to the dads who nostalgically twirled their little girls around and around, this was one happy occasion for many families in Rosewood. The only ones not having the time of their lives? Hanna, Spencer, and Aria.

Whereas Emily actually seemed to be savoring every second spent with her wonderful dad (kudos to her for that, the other girls were wallowing in despair and anger. Aria didn’t feel like posing for photos with her dad Byron — especially since he’s totally anti-Ezria. Spencer was furious with her father Peter for withholding major secrets from his family (like, oh say, $10,000 worth). And poor Hanna’s dad basically stood her up. Thankfully though, despite all the family drama, DJ Mike along with DJ Gavin kept the unforgettable beats coming to lighten the mood!
