Songs for Emily's iPod 

So, we got Emily an iPod Shuffle for Christmas. The price was far better than I had imagined. I am coveting her gift. I hope to purchase an iPhone soon. I need to be able to answer email while mobile during the day. And I want to listen to music during the day. But, the stores still want money for the iPhone and I am still not willing to give them money. We are at an impasse.

I have enjoyed selecting songs for her iPod. She now has 69 songs on it. I have to admit, I probably have had more fun selecting the songs than she has had listening. The selection is wide. Patsy Cline to RunDMC to Beatles to Linkin Park to MercyMe to Journey to Willie Nelson. I absolutely am a fan of only paying for the songs I like. Honestly, Van Halen's 1984 was the last album I remember buying and liking almost every song. The soundtrack for Oh Brother, Where Art Thou is about the same. But a soundtrack is a collection of various artists offering a good song. It is the equivalent of a mix tape.

I am inviting suggestions. Here are the rules:

#1 - The songs have to be suitable for a 6-year-old girl being raised by 2 normal adults who love her and want her to enjoy music.

#2 - Be creative.

#3 - If possible, the song should be available on iTunes. If not, we will have to wait and see.

Just respond in the comments section.
