Suggestions for great educational music for almost 2 yr old..

Hi! I'm starting to see that my almost 2 yr old DD is a serious auditory learner. I'm not sure if it's her age, or just her..but she is sponging up everything she hears that is set to music. I'm thinking it might be time for me to retire listening to my own station in the car since she now sings along to that Apple-bottom jeans song..and well as the Leona Lewis Bleeding Love song among other songs that she really shouldn't listen to. So I was wondering if anyone had any educational (meaning it has songs involving counting to 10, an alphabet song, colors..stuff like that) music recommendations for me so that I can get her to learn something beneficial (and not "getting low low low low... ) while we cruise in the car! Thanks!

It's more fun than educational, but my (similar) daughter loves Raffi, and I don't mind his music. <g> We're right there with you, though; DH set our phone number to a tune a few days ago and she just about has it down. She can sing pieces of every song DH and I have learned for our local choir in the last year, including Latin and German texts....

Oh, and I keep thinking about buying the Trebellina video to actually teach DD music fundamentals! but I haven't been able to find many reviews.

I'll be watching this thread.

I love Raffi, and though Barney is annoying, DD (17 months) loves loves loves Barney CDs. She gets so excited when they come one. I swear it is Barney crack or something!

In our walmart baby dept. they have some cd's there that you can push the buttons and listen to in the store. DS loves them. I've got one of them and it's worked out pretty well. You might want to check there I think they were like $7. Also like Blues Clues, Sesame Street, etc. CDs might be beneficial.
