Music for kids (of all ages)

I'm going to come right out and say that I don't like children's music that contains children singing.  It makes my skin crawl like the smell of pink J&J lotion.  When Olivia was born Steve and I went through our CDs looking for lullaby music we don't mind hearing over and over, like Sarah McLachlan and John Denver. 

That being said, my sister-in-law gave us a CD they enjoy called "Blue Moo" which is designed for kids but is clever and catchy for adults.  For example, BB King sings the "One Shoe Blues." I love it and other Sandra Boynton albums like "Philadelphia Chickens."  I'm open to suggestions if you guys have other adult-friendly kid music, too -- just leave a comment so we can all enjoy.

Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies by Andrew Peterson and Randall Goodgame. Andrew Peterson is a Christian artist and the two of them collaborated on songs they wrote for their children. There are some children's voices in one or two of the songs though. My sister gave it to me and I've given it to Brad and Janelle and we all love it. Good for adults and kids.
