I want to create a playlist for my 6 yo daughter - we don't have a stereo in the car, and she gets bored on long drives. I thought I could create a playlist for her on my MP3 player. She likes "girl music" - female singers - and I want uplifting, empowering stuff.


So far, I've thought of:


The Best Day - Taylor Swift

Keep Holding On - Avril Lavigne (sp?)

Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson

The Climb - Miley Cyrus


Other ideas?

Here's the stuff my nine-year-old daughter likes. She's not as big on contemporary pop as she is on, well, '80s pop! But like your daughter, she's all about female singers:


Walk Like an Egyptian, The Bangles -- and lots of others by the Bangles

Rock Lobster, The B-52s

Summer of Love, The B-52s

We Got the Beat, the Go-Gos

Walking on Air, Kerli

Creationist, Kerli (NOT about religious creationism, but about being creative and creating your own life)

Up Up Up, Kerli

Windstorm, School of Seven Bells

Wanna Be, Spice Girls (What a difference a decade makes -- in '90s, we got girl pop about how you have to be nice to my friends and be a giving person if you want  to date me ... in 2000s, we get "don't you wish your girlfriend was a freak like me" ...)

Kids in America, Kim Wilde

Heart of Glass, Blondie

Tide Is High, Blondie

Groove Is in the Heart, Dee-Lite


I'll second ABBA, "Just the Way You Are," and "The Dog Days Are Over." She also likes Bruno Mars and is sort of fascinated by Lady Gaga's total willingness to be weird and not a typical pop princess. you REALLY have to pick and choose to find Gaga tunes suitable for a preteen, though ... and even the ones that have innocuous lyrics, like Telephone, have rather skanky videos!

Yeah that is great idea and I would say that you should listen up to Lady Gaga as well.
