6/8/09 Name That Tune

DS1 decided to have his graduation party next month (they go on all summer here). I'm making a DVD slide show set to music that plays music clips in the background. We set it up to play continuously where the food tables are so people can watch some/all as they arrive. I'm putting together the elements of it now; about 10 pics from each year of his life set sequentially and about 10-11 song clips; about 2 min. each. I have to finish soon as I send the scanned pics and music to an expert who makes it all look pretty.
I did the same thing as a surprise for DD's graduation party 4 years ago, so this time DS1 knows its coming and has been helping me screen some songs. DD is like me and likes a little bit of everything so it was easy to pick music for hers (and there were several daughter/girl songs). I ended up with a lot of country just because the lyrics worked well with little kid pictures. DS1's a rocker and doesn't like country...so we found lots more rocker/current ones that he'll pick 2-3 from for his High School years. I need mostly songs that are appropriate for little kid pics and the growing up years as that's most of the pics/show. If you have any suggestions, or opinions, let me know!

Here's our working list that we've yet to narrow down.
