    I don't mean Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I mean unique rock, alternative, pop, etc. songs.

    Rock, alt, pop is broad. For us, It's more what they gravitate to than anything else and then ruling things out as needed.

    I'm not seeking parenting advice.

    If you were to make a list of your top 5, what would they be? I'm not looking for any special genre, just songs that kids would enjoy too.

    Those are awesome suggestions, but I'm looking more for songs that are not necessarily geared toward children. Songs that kids would enjoy, yet aren't made specifically for children. I have covered TMBG, Devo, B-52s etc, but I need songs from other parts of the musical landscape.

    For example:

    If you were to create a mix that you'd have to listen to for hours upon hours without shooting your face off, what would be on it?

    What do you mean by "kids?" I feel like there is a tremendous difference in the attnetion spa n and interest in very small amounts of time. Like 3-5, 5-7-, 7-9, etc.

    Yes. This is more about creating a playlist of background tunes that can be played while working on other things. The music doesn't have to be the focus of the activity.

    My boyfriend's son, who is 9, really loves this song. He asks me to play it in the car a lot. I think it's the fact that it's about mosquitos, has Karen O's interesting voice, and has an easy chorus. But for smaller kids, I don't know:



    Also: Black Keys are a good bet, I have picked up the little guy at school many times when the kids are listening to them on the playground and going nuts.

    My 2 year old loves this song! Once she hears that baseline at the beginning of the song, her eyes light up with joy! Of course there's that lyric where he sings "I wonder how many times you've had sex" but we'll just have to talk to her about that later..

    When this song was popular it was all that I ever heard the kids around me sing.

    I think this would be a great song for kids to dance to.

    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
