A play list for a Christmas party for 7-9 year olds?

I have agreed to compile a play list for a Christmas party for 7-9 year olds. My own musical tastes will not cut it and I am woefully out of touch with what the yoof of today listen to. Feeling a touch out of my depth.
Can anyone save me a lot of time, and suggest what might be a success?
It has to be squeaky clean.
Thank you!

Oh I'd do a mix of pop and Christmas songs

So...

Happy by Pharrel Williams
Call me Maybe
Best Song Ever
I Gotta Feeling Black Eyed Peas
Just Dance
Gangnam Style
Firework
Party in the USA
Live While We're Young
Roar

Merry Christmas Everybody
Santa Claus is Comin to Town
Jingle Bell Rock
I Wish it Could be Christmas Every Day

There are more on Youtube if you just put in the Christmas songs and more will be suggested. Same with the pop songs.

Intersperse the pop with the Christmas. There'll be fewer suitable Christmas songs than general pop so do, two or three pop and then a Christmas.

Finish the playlist with Santa Claus is Comin to Town.

Yay, thank you smile
I like the idea of mixing it up with Christmas songs. My own kids' tastes are as niche as mine, and when I asked my class what they listen to (right age range, urban primary) and went home and checked it is out on YouTube, I needed eye bleach afterwards.
