DD's Dad has got her a nano and I'm going to put some music on there and wondered if anyone had any suggestions?

Thanks,

Jules

My daughter (similar age) likes things she has heard on CBeebies, eg

Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild
Madonna - Hung Up

Also

Kylie - anything but especially the Locomotion
Pogues - Fairy tale of New York (mercifully she can't discern most of the lyrics but the inclusion of the word bum is very amusing)
Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancing

Rhianna

Blimey.

I'd suggest The Hippopotamus Song by Flanders and Swann, Waltz of the Flowers by Tchaikovsky, Day tripper and Paperback Writer by the Beatles, Don't be Cruel and Blue Suede Shoes by Elvis.

I find my kids mostly like whatever music I usually listen to, or the soundtrack to their fave movies, pixar etc.
Go through some random stuff on you tube and let her listen to various things, and show you which songs to click on next. my two have discovered lots of incredibally annoying music this way grin

incredibally hmm (possibly an apt description for some of it though grin )

BoccaDellaNativita Fri 26-Dec-08 19:24:23

Yes, there's lots of Beatles music which might be suitable. Yellow Submarine is popular in Chateau Bocca.

All my old favourites are the most popular with my DD 10grin

DS 7 likes what his mates like - mainly hip-hophmm, though he does like reggae and some RnBgrin

we have just made several compilations for ds who is coming up 6
so far the popular ones are disco music and slightly alternative stuff like undertones, new order
i think a strong beat and distinctive sound is popular at this age - nothing too subtle

your kids are all very sophisticated compared to mine! mine are still into songs written for children - you should look up www.mrmylesmusic.co.uk for non pop-star endorsed songs which are really fun and a bit less about being babylicious wink

"Mama I'm a big girl now"

She also likes Girls Aloud.
