(Life.com) -- In 1995, the singer-songwriter — and wonderful cartoonist — Peter Blegvad released a song later made semi-famous when a cover version by Loudon Wainwright III was featured on the soundtrack for Judd Apatow's film "Knocked Up." The song, "Daughter," is as sweet and true as any song ever written by a parent to a child, and manages to capture in relatively few words the intense, tender, exasperating, fraught and — with luck — loving relationships that dads and their female progeny enjoy -- and sometimes merely endure.

In a special Father's Day gallery, LIFE.com applauds that unique familial bond with photos of famous fathers and their daughters.
