My daughter’s favorite

Kicking the list off with my daughter’s favorite, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, the Hawaiian sounding version by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. It will always get her dancing and can calm her down when upset. Sometimes we even use it to help get her to sleep!


No kids music playlist would be complete without a little Disney music! The overwhelming favorite seems to be Moana “remember the coconut”!. We don’t watch movies yet but I still get these songs stuck in my head from the Pandora Disney music station. The music is pretty fun, some of my favorites are:

“How Far I’ll Go”

“You’re Welcome”

“Where You Are”

Nursery Rhymes

Nursery rhymes are generally a safe bet when it comes to kids. The favorites seem to be:

“Itsy Bitsy Spider”

“You Are My Sunshine”

“I’m a little teapot”
