-Well, I think the point is this:  Why that particular song?  Obviously
-it reminded him of Laura in some way.  It may not be a "strange" song
-but it's also not one you hear a lot anymore either.

Actually it's one of those songs for which it's cliche'd that a father 
would teach his daughter how to dance to.  Just about any Big Band song 
would have worked; Pennsylvania 6-5000, is probably one of Lynch's favorites.

Funny how now that Laura's mom has controlled her grief (she seemed more
in control, anyway) that dad broke down.  Real life pretty much works
this way too.
