Cool music for babies

Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies, That's Entertainment

I've made it my mission in life not to introduce my child to any music I wouldn't want to hear 1,000 times in a row. Turns out, I'm not alone.

So long are the days of cheesy kids songs that drove parents up the wall. "Hip" kids music, an oxymoron if I've ever heard one, is gaining popularity with parents and kids alike.

According to the Mercury News, sales of kids' music is up 60% this year. The trick for creating kids music is to have repetition and clear vocals (for the kids) and good lyrics and a beat (for the adults).

My daughter, who is not quite two, is a music fanatic. She's in love with The Ben Folds Five and John Mayer. I'm always searching for good tunes that are both kid and adult friendly.

Who do your kids listen to? Have any recommendation of CDs?
