Being Eight

Songs on Whale Child’s ‘Faves’ list on the 1gb hand-me-down i-Pod Nano he inherited from his big brother:

    Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting, Carl Douglas
    The Click Song, Miriam Makeba
    The Lion Sleeps Tonight, The Tokens
    Lady of the Sea, Seth Lakeman
    We Are The Champions, Queen
    Another One Bites the Dust, Queen
    Iko Iko, Aaron Carter
    Build Me Up Buttercup, The Foundations
    Runaround Sue, Dion
    Panis Angelicus, Sting & Pavarotti
    Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting, Nickelback
    Waterloo, Abba
    Thriller, Michael Jackson
    500 Miles, The Proclaimers

Is this a representative 8-year-old i-Pod faves list in 2009? I fear we are either in the process of seriously warping him or have already successfully done so, without even trying.
