What My Five-Year-Old Is Listening To

My five-year-old has her own CD player in her room. No phone, yet, and no TV. And no Nintendo anywhere in the house. But she's gotta have her tunes, right? So here's the playlist on her latest CD (burned by yours truly); incidentally, all of these songs were hand-picked by her.
The Spongebob Squarepants Theme Song
There Is (Boxcar Racer)
Da Da Da (Trio)
Who Woke Snow White Up? (Baha Men)
What I Like About You (The Romantics)
Beep Beep (The Playmates)
YMCA (The Village People)
Kiss Me Deadly (Lita Ford)
Wooly Bully (Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs)
Under the Sea (The Little Mermaid)
Le Banana Split (Sandra Lou)
That's My Name (Bear in the Big Blue House)
Who Let the Dogs Out? (Baha Men)
Lollipop (The Sensations)
The Bridesmaid Dress Song (Deirdre Flint)
What Do I Do? (Jimmie's Chicken Shack)
Pop Music (Devo)
Chantilly Lace (The Big Bopper)
Elvira (The Oak Ridge Boys)
A Whole New World (Aladdin and Jasmine)
The Tide is High (Blondie)
Sk8r Boi (Avril Lavigne)
Robot Parade (They Might Be Giants)
Me Lost Me Cookie at the Disco (Cookie Monster)
You'll note that I've included just a few hyperlinks; I find that it's disheartening to see too many places to visit. Enjoy!

You are doing an excellent job in raising such a very musically diverse kiddie. Keep up the good work!

That is SO GREAT! My kids love all kinds of music too. My 10 year old son is a major Tom Waits fan... ;)

Ha! Looks like our five-year olds have been file-sharing on the internet.

"Pop Music" was actually by a band called "M", not Devo.

This is a girl who is clearly after my own heart.:)

Panthergirl, I too am a huge Tom Waits fan. I didn't discover him until high school. I am very impressed that a 10-year old likes such interesting and poetic lyrics. Wife says he sounds like he has throat cancer. We won't go into her taste in music or lack thereof.
