    I dropped Spotify in favor of a Youtube subscription so that my kids no longer have to watch the outrageous and increasing youtube ads. Can you guys add Youtube playlists? Much appreciated!

  2. avatar Renae Nicholson says:

    Love this list!

    One to add – No Matter What, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and performed by Boyzone. My 8-yr old and I love this song!

  3. avatar Charlie Stephenson says:

    HI. I was wondering if you could add a few more songs to the playlist. My 11-year-old daughter Audrey Guinn is a musical artist who just released her first pop album titled “Best Day Ever (Until Tomorrow)”:

    https://open.spotify.com/artist/1H5Fx6SkNr8e0CM1Wi8VB2

    She released it on her 11th birthday. And it is full of inspiring themes for her friends and tweens everywhere.

    Hope you like it!

    Best Day Ever by Spongebob
    Saturday by Nathan Willet
    Happy by Pharrell Williams
    Teamwork by Yo Gabba Gabba!
    I Did the Dishes by Parry Gripp
