(Newser) – Parents, don’t let Disney's catalog of saccharine tunes ruin any more of your road trips. There are songs that can bridge the generation gap, Lindsay Armstrong writes on Babble:

  • Jackson Five’s “ABC”: School the kids on the alphabet and pop music—all at once.
  • Billy Idol’s “Dancing with Myself": If it’s good enough for the Muppets, it’s good enough for your brood.
  • Simon and Garfunkel’s “Me and Julio": The kids will love characters like “Mama Pajama” and “Rosie, the Queen of Corona.”

  • The Beatles’ “Hey Jude": “Take a sad song and make it better.” Is there a better life lesson?
  • Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds": “It’s illegal to make a summertime mix that doesn’t include at least one Marley song.”
  • The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice": Kids grumble that they can’t wait to grow up and get their way. Now they can sing about it, too.
