    We decided to give our daughter an MP3 player loaded with some age appropriate songs for her birthday.

    I hope this doesn't cost me a fortune.

    Any good songs out there? She loves all varieties except rap. And of course no Madonna songs. She's been banned in my house.

    Well, you should start out with any track off of Cannibal Corpse's paramount second album, "Tomb of the Mutilated" including, but not limited to, "Entrails Ripped from a Virgin's ****", "I Cum Blood" or the Ace Ventura Pet Detective track "Hammer Smashed Face".

    Then, you might wanna add some religious music from the guys of Slayer. I suggest anything off of the "Reign In Blood", "South of Heaven" or "Seasons in the Abyss" albums. Don't forget something from their latest offering: Christ Illusion. Indeed, the title track is good clean fun.

    I'd toss in some oldies next. Maybe a few tracks off of any album during the 1980s from the following bands: Anthrax (persistance of time), Metallica (up to Justice), Megadeth (So far, so good, so what), Maiden, Motley Crue (Shout at the Devil) and the like. Don't forget the occasional one hit wonders and variational genres including Tool, Helmet, Biohazard, Pantera, Sepultura, White Zombie etc.

    Lastly, make sure the kid understands where this music came from. While it's been disputed by some laymen the fact remains that if there were no Black Sabbath there would be no righteous metal music. My choice would be, of course, my favorite Sabbath tune:

    You're not coming within 10 feet of my daughter! LOL! BTW, some of that heavy metal stuff has been used to torture people. Ha ha.

    Well, with a daughter recently coming out of that same age range, I've got some ideas.

    I'd prefer the ones you mention, of course. I'd toss in some Buddy Holly as well.

    Thank you. Somebody who understands the term "age appropriate."

    Those are more like it. We like disco music like ABBA, great saxophone music, opera, classical, and even some really old kids songs that she could sing to like ... "Hello Mother, Hello Father..." I forget the name. She even likes Josh Groban! I had him on the other day and she stopped playing with her brother to listen to it.

    Here is some stuff my kids like (daughter is 15, son is 10). We've seen the first 4 acts live together:

    Relient K - Sadie Hawkins Dance, anything else (they're Christian and their music is pretty wholesome)

    MxPx - anything, they are semi-Christian punk rockers. I'd recommend You Make Me, Me and More Everything.

    Mae - also Christian, but still cool - MySpace.com - MAE - Virginia Beach, Virginia - www.myspace.com/mae
    Songs: Summertime, Embers and Envelopes, Just Let Go

    Anges & Airwaves - The Adventure

    Dashboard Confessional - Stolen

    Finger Eleven - One Thing

    Flaming Lips - Fight Test

    The Fray - Look After You, How to Save a Life

    Green Day - Holiday, Wake Me Up When September Ends

    Ingrid Michaelson - The Way I Am

    Ben Folds Five - Lullabye
    Lit - Lullabye

    Rise Against - Swing Life Away

    All American Rejects - Swing, Swing; My Paper Heart; Your Star; Time Stands Still

    Barenaked Ladies - Light Up My Room, One Week

    COldplay - Strawberry Swing, Viva La Vida, Clocks, Yellow

    jason Mraz - I'm Yours

    Landon Pigg - Love in a Coffee Shop

    Modest Mouse - Little Motel, Float On

    Muse - Supermassive Black Hole (on the soundtrack for Twilight, if she's old enough to like that)

    My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade

    Natasha Beddingfield - Unwritten

    New Radicals - You Get What You Give

    Corinne Bailey Rae - Put Your Records On

    Quietdrive - Time After Time

    Rogue Wave - Lake Michigan, Debaser

    Scissor Sisters - Take Your Mama

    Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars, Chocolate, Signal Fire

    Hum - Stars

    Stone Roses - Waterfall

    Weezer - Only in Dreams, Pork and Beans, Island in the Sun

    Also, throw on some 70s and 80s stuff:

    The Cure - Just Like Heaven, Friday I'm in Love, Pictures of You
    Modern English - I Melt With You
    Earth Wind & Fire - September, Boogie WOnderland, Sing a Song
    Echo & the Bunnymen - Lips like Sugar
    The English Beat - Save it for Later
    The Clash - Should I stay or Should I go
    Alphaville - Forever Young


    My best advice - plan on listening to a lot of new music in the next 8-10 years.

    p.s. The songs above contain NO profanity, and are basically wholesome in message, but are also contemporary enough to make her rather cutting edge with her peers.

    Also, if you don't have a lot of music on your computer (I think we have about 8,000 songs on a removable hard drive), you might want to download utorrent and download a lot of it. That way you can just snag one song from an album, versus buying the entire thing. I also recommend Itunes online if you have ethical issues with stealing music, just buy a single song by a particular artist.

    You just have to watch for viruses.
