Before we ring in another year, I’m looking back at some of my favorite kids’ music tunes of 2012. With a little something for every taste, here are some great songs to upload into your family music mix.

1. Thousand Star Hotel from The Okee Dokee Brothers’ Grammy-nominated  Can You Canoe?
(Also a top Fids & Kamily pick)

2. Connect the Stars from The Pop-Ups’ Radio Jungle.
3. Nightmares Disappear from Secret Agent 23 Skidoo’s Make Believers.
4. High Five from Shine and the Moonbeams.
5. Why is Dad So Mad? (about Star Wars) from the Board of Education’s Binary
