Quality Kid's Music

On the way home last week I started a Pandora station for the kids. We're not big on kid's music in the car. They dig what we dig. But I thought it might be fun to see what came up. I, of course enjoyed the Disney classics and a few Veggie Tales' songs. Then the most horrendous thing happened: Alvin and the Chipmunks came on. They were singing: ALL THE SMALL THINGS by Blink 182. I am not Blink 182's biggest fan. I'm not even a fan. I'm not even willing to listen to Blink 182.

I also talked to my brother, Aaron the music guy, about good kid's music last week. He brought up Johnny Cash's kid's album with The Dinosaur Song. What a fun kid's CD- it's quality. I love Mr. Cash and for him to be singing about dinosaurs to my 3 year old, it makes my day!

I used some Amazon gift card $ from Swagbucks to buy music for the kids. I got the Johnny Cash album and a few Rockabye Baby rendition songs:

-Kashmir by Led Zeppelin (most epic song opening, even in lullaby form)

- Enter Sandman by Metallica (Metallica isn't really my cup of tea, but how could I resist buying this song to help put my children to sleep?)

-Come as You Are by Nirvana (for the nights they wear their flannel jammies to sleep)

-Wish you were Here by Pink Floyd (I just ♥ this song)

-You're my Best Friend by Queen (We played this song at our wedding)

What good kid's music do you like?? Any hints?

Thanks for the advice. I'll have to look into this album! We're not much into kids music either. Norah likes Ben Folds. I listened to him a lot when I was preggers.
