MP3 Playlist for an 8 year old

Okay, so one of the gifts we're giving Brendan (age 8) for Christmas is an MP3 player. It finally came in (man is it tiny! Sansa SanDisk clip) and I've been loading it with a bunch of songs he likes. Below is his playlist...any other upbeat must-haves for an 8 year old that I've forgotten???

All Star by Smash Mouth
Dancing With Myself (from Flushed Away Soundtrack)
Don’t Worry Be Happy w/ the Slugs (Flushed Away)
Funkytown by Lipps, Inc (Shrek 2 Soundtrack)
Get Up Off a That Thing by James Brown (Robots Soundtrack)
Getting Better by Smash Mouth (Cat in the Hat Soundtrack)
Hakuna Matata by Ernie Sabella (Lion King Soundtrack)
Hound Dog by Elvis
I Just Can’t Wait to be King by Laura Williams (Lion King Soundtrack)
I Like to Move It Move It by Sacha Baron Cohen (Madagascar Soundtrack)
I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow
It’s a Sunshine Day by the Brady Bunch
It’s Your Thing by Dave Seaman (Muppets From Space soundtrack)
La Vida Loca (from Shrek soundtrack)
Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts (Cars soundtrack)
Old Time Rock 'n Roll by Bob Seger (both my boys' favorite song!!!)
One Little Slip by Barenaked Ladies (Chicken Little soundtrack)
Pump It (Kidz Bop version)
Rockin' Robin

We're in Harmony (Fox and the Hound 2 soundtrack)
Wild and Free (Barnyard soundtrack)
You've Got a Friend in Me (Toy Story soundtrack)

He also loves "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot, but he only knows the main line "I like big butts and I cannot lie...". (which he and Adam both love to sing over and over and do a little butt-dance) I couldn't bring myself to put the song on his MP3 though, as I do not want him to learn the rest of the lyrics which are not exactly 8-yr-old-appropriate. LOL I did, however, add it to *my* MP3 for working out to :)
