Nursery rhymes are fine, but baby Harlow "likes The Cure," proud papa – and weekend DJ – Joel Madden tells PEOPLE.

Madden, whose daughter with Nicole Richie, Harlow Winter Kate Madden, was born in January, jetted to the Hamptons for Memorial Day Weekend to spin records at La Playa in Southampton, but he's not sticking around.

"The Hamptons are definitely a good place to hang out for the whole summer," he told PEOPLE. "But I'm a dad now. I'd be staying if I didn't have the girls at home. That's why I'm going home."

The crowd at La Playa "went nuts for Justin Timberlake, and for [Black Kids]' 'I'm Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance,' Madonna, and Prince," he said.

But for Harlow, Madden has a different playlist that includes "a lot of Disney stuff and classical. She likes Good Charlotte. And she likes her granddad [Lionel Richie]'s music. She likes old stuff. She's a Cure fan ... She likes The Cure."

According to Madden, Harlow already moves to the music. "Oh, yeah," he said. She kicks her legs."

It's no wonder Madden says one of his favorite things to do with Harlow is "listen to music and change diapers."
