Hey Music Fans,
Our son wants an Ipod for his 11th birthday next week. I'm going to just get him a Nano, he doesn't need anything fancy.
My bigger issue is, what songs to put on his Ipod. He already likes Rush since I took him to the show last year, but I don't want to bog down his Nano with every song.
I want to give him a good collection of "must haves" to give him a good taste of what's out there, but I also want to be mindful of what an 11 year old would like. My tastes in music when I was 11 are MUCH different than they are now. I don't want to put anything too odd on there, I want him to enjoy the music, and make it approachable to an 11 year old. Not sure if he has the patience to sit and listen to all of "The Wall" or "Dark side of the moon" or something.
Already he's requested that I put the "Rock Band" songs on there, which is fine.
What other suggestions do you have?
I'm already going to put some:
And also some from the two musicals we've taken the kids to (Wicked and Phantom).
I'd LOVE to put some of my jazz stuff on there, but what 11 y/o wants to listen.
What suggestions do you have for me?
