iTunes likes to have famous people compile their playlists, so I thought I'd do the same with Cava's.
1. "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King. I once showed him the YouTube video of this song being sung in Ukrainian, but Cava shook his head, "No, Papa, not right." He only wanted to hear the song in English.
2. "Good Morning" by Mandisa and featuring TobyMac. I love when Cava sings, "Top o' the mornin' to you 'Disa."
3. Speaking of TobyMac, he has two of Cava's favorites: "Eye On It" and "Unstoppable" both off the Eye On It album.
4. Harry Belafonte's "Jump In The Line (Shake Senora)." And, no, he hasn't seen Beetlejuice.
5. "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes" by The Wiggles. I like this song because we get some exercise doing it together. This is followed by The Wiggles' songs "Hot Potato" and "Fruit Salad."
6. "Hello Song" from the PBS show DragonTales. This was one of Benjamin's favorites when he was little, too.
7. The theme song to Dinosaur Train, which combines two of his favorite things: dinosaurs and trains.
8. Indie songstress Regina Spektor makes an appearance as Cava loves her catchy, upbeat song "Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)". I found a version where she sings it in Russian, but just as with "Hakuna Matata," he didn't want to hear it.
9. The Beatles' "All Together Now":
As you can see, he has a varied taste in songs. Who knows, maybe one day he can host on one of those college radio stations that have programs with titles like "Eclectic Blend."
