SOLANGE KNOWLES & JULEZ, 3

1 "THE BACKYARDIGANS THEME SONG" by the Backyardigans.
"Julez has loved the Backyardigans since the day he was born. I love the diversity in the music on here. Reggae, jazz, country ... you name it, Uniqua is gonna sing it and Julez is gonna listen."

2 "I DECIDED" by Solange Knowles.
"One day I heard Julez sing it and he knew all the words. He especially loves when I say 'oh my boy.' It almost makes me want to cry every time I hear him sing it."

3 "CRANK THAT (SOULJA BOY)" by Soulja Boy
Tell 'Em. "Julez gets this little baby thug face when it comes on. The words are harmless so I get a kick out of him singing 'yooooouuu.'"

4 "STRONGER" by Kanye West.
"One Christmas we gave Julez a box that we didn't think was going to get a reaction because it was clothes. It was some Louis Vuitton gear. When he opened it, he dropped the box and screamed, 'Un unn, you can't tell me nothing,' like Kanye West! He was barely 2 years old and knew that Louis Vuitton equaled Kanye West."

TAYLOR HANSON & RIVER, 2

1 "PINK MOON" by Nick Drake.
"Natalie [his wife] and I play this one as the calm-down bedtime song."

2 "TAKE ME BACK TO TULSA" by Bob Wills.
"This is the sing-along song of the moment. We are really into Texas swing right now at our house!"

3 "BELIEVER" by Ben Kweller.
"Natalie always sang this to our daughter Penny while she was rocking her to sleep."

4 "BLACK OR WHITE" by Michael Jackson.
"All the kids love, love, love Michael Jackson. Listening to this is when they really bust a move."

5 "WHITE & NERDY" by "Weird Al" Yankovic.
"This is my son Ezra's favorite song, from his second favorite singer of all time, after his dad, as he says."
