Rock and Pop for Kids

Recommended Posts

When I was six, I played the soundtrack to "Lady and the Tramp" and Sean Cassidy on my Fisher Price record player (which had my sister's name in brown crayon scrawled across the top).

My six year old and my eight year old have MP3 players.

I have no philosophy or strategy for guiding my children's tastes. I just want songs that they are likely to enjoy that are not about the Britney's sexual exploits. Mostly, I just want them to love music.

So I'm looking for fun and pretty innocuous. Here's some of the stuff they have right now...

Plain White Tees - 1,2,3,4

Panic at the Disco - Nine in the Afternoon

Don't worry be happy -Bobby McFerrin

Some Taylor Swift

Some Jack Johnson

A fair amount of Sam Cooke

Gypsy Kings



I know those are sort of all over the map. Many of them are influenced by what they hear on films or Rock Band.

What do your kids listen to?
