Songs You Can Listen to With Your Kids That Don't Suck

I have a playlist on my iPod of songs originally intended for grown-ups that my kids love.  And you know what?  I am so sick of all of these songs that I want to vomit.  So I thought maybe we could utilize this internet thingee to share our favorite non-annoying songs that kids love (or that at least are safe to listen to with the kids in the car).  The more random - the better we like it.

If you have some great songs, please leave a comment.  PLEASE.  I can't hear any more of the crap I already have.  I'll be updating the suggestions we get from Facebook throughout the afternoon and evening.
